Land Seeker Description

 

Organic and Forest Farming

I’m seeking an opportunity to explore land-enhancing cultivation practices along with research-driven farming (with an emphasis on the potential of existing soil). I’m also interested in innovative irrigation solutions. So, I’m open to making the best of any land offered for consideration.

Ideal farm settings would include a water source such as a river, lagoon, creek, or underground creek, lake fed creeks, and marshland. Farmland with forest on-site or nearby would be ideal as well as road access.  Any locations off of Highway 101 and its intersecting highways, from the Chetco River up to all the way to the Umpqua River would be fine.

Enough flat space for a temporary or permanent structure to package and process end products would be appreciated. 

Land that can support an overseer stay in a mobile unit would be ideal, cell phone service area with electricity matters most at this time. Sewer access and existing infrastructure are helpful but not essential. I’m somewhat creative so I’m confident that with time I can make almost any farming environment work for the good of myself and others. I’m even open to bringing small amounts of (non-salty) water tanks in, if necessary.

 

 


What features of the property are essential?

Water rights, water sources such as creeks or rivers with coastal marshland along with a hill that has an ocean view within forest canopy shade. Zoning to support clearing space for essential operations such as drying and processing. Cell phone tower access and electricity.


Describe your farming experience

I grew up in a black and white two-story small farmhouse among pomegranate and walnut trees in a rural family-farming community, with a horse in our backyard. My family later gathered in a commercial farming community where I worked in neat rows of apricot trees and okra. My earliest labor experiences were based on production and performance; I picked food by hand, cut, dried, and prepared products for sale and transport.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

Ownership. Preparing neglected or undeveloped for production. Propagating useful native herbs, mushrooms, and garlic. I plan to grow cattails, for which I already have a buyer.


What are your long term goals

I would like to contribute to the betterment of the entire community with interesting activities. I'd love to enable the work of other people who enjoy working with pollinators such as bees--or even host a mushroom festival, someday. Aside from that, I'm looking to establish a farm with regular buyers.


Describe your housing needs

I need to stay within 5 hours of Gold Beach, Oregon, so I'd like to be able to live where I'd have an opportunity to farm. I don't care if that's in an RV or a cabin, really. I'm quite happy to add a resting room to any type of building, too, if need be.
