Land Seeker Description

I am a teacher by trade, currently looking for a space to start a small, indoor mushroom farm (the nonpsychoactive kind : ) If leasing is an option, I would only need a small piece of land. Approximately big enough for three 40ft shipping containers. I would also need access to water and possibly power, although I am researching solar options as well.


What features of the property are essential?

Water and maybe electricity. Trees would be great, but not essential.


Describe your farming experience

I have no real farming experience, but I have gardened most of my life, however.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

I plan on starting small, growing enough for farmer's markets etc. Eventually, I hope to be growing and selling enough to earn a livable income.


What are your long term goals

Retire a millionaire mushroom farmer.


Describe your housing needs

I do not need housing.


What will you do as a farmer to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone on your farm and in your community?

Well, initially it would only be me. But if the business grows I would implement the following:
Respect and Inclusion: I will treat everyone with respect, regardless of their background, and foster a culture of inclusivity. This includes providing equal opportunities for all employees and visitors.
Education and Awareness: I will conduct regular training sessions on diversity, equity, and inclusion to ensure that everyone on the farm understands the importance of these values and how to uphold them.
Open Communication: I will establish clear channels for communication where individuals can express their concerns and suggestions regarding diversity and inclusion. This will include regular meetings and anonymous feedback options.
Safe Working Conditions: I will ensure that all safety protocols are followed and that the farm is a safe place to work and visit. This includes proper signage, safety equipment, and regular safety drills.
Community Engagement: I will actively engage with the local community to promote understanding and collaboration among people from diverse backgrounds. This includes participating in community events and supporting local diversity initiatives.
