Land Seeker Description

Hi! We are Anna and Brian. Brian is currently participating in the Rogue Farm Corps Training Program this summer. He’s excited to get hands on experience with locals farms close to our current home in Bend, OR. Anna is currently working from home and keeping herself entertained by foraging, gardening in our backyard and researching earth building, season extension, permaculture and no dig planting. Our latest obsession is learning about how to incorporate mushrooms into the garden ecosystem. We are very new to farming, but hope to bring some knowledge and experience with us. We would love to partner with someone with more experience or be mentored. Both of us are ready to for long days in the sun and hard work. Our date for when we’d like to be on the land is any time after September 1st. We’d like to have a spot set in the winter and begin a market garden for the 2022 season. We are open to many different arrangements, especially sharing/community farming. We hope to meet you and work with you soon!
