Land Seeker Description

Hi fellow land custodians. I’m a Regenerative Land Design graduate devoted to designing, developing, and maintaining natural landscapes that increase the property’s value, diversifies it’s productivity and mitigates disasters. I have 10 years of farming theory under my belt and thought it was about time to move out of my current job as a Technology Consultant where I help companies utilize cutting edge technology like Virtual Reality and into something I feel more passionate about – Restoring our habitats, growing healthy food and reestablishing community connections.


What features of the property are essential?

There are no essentials that I need to get started but everything helps! I wouldn't mind a degraded piece of land to bio-remediate, hydrate and bring back to life as well.


Describe your farming experience

I've studied land engineering with Geoff Lawton, soil biology with Elaine Ingham, holistic management with Allan Savory and no-till, regenerative farming with Richard Perkins. I have a permaculture certification from Andrew Faust. I've interned on multiple farms. Jobs included: Implemented ponds, dams, roads and swales to move water more evenly. I've managed a no-till market garden. Built biocomplete compost amendment. Have experience in microscopy soil analysis to confirm the correct bacteria to fungal biomass ratio to optimize bumper crops. I have experience integrating and managing ducks, chickens and cattle as a holisitc management strategy and as a product for sale to consumers. I'm currently designing a 30 acre, 4 home community homestead.


Are you currently farming?

No

What are your short term goals for the land

I would like the opportunity to build out and help manage an organic community farm or a private homestead by implementing water features, creating biocomplete soil and planting edible landscapes. Building a couple tiny homes would be a bonus.


What are your long term goals

Run a land development company through a portfolio of successfully maintained regenerative land initiatives that provide assistance to land owners wanting to develop and farm in a way that uses less energy inputs and increases water cycling, nutrient cycling and improves the land for wildlife, livestock and people.


Describe your housing needs

I live in Hillsboro so it's not such a big deal. Would be nice to construct a tiny home if time permits.
