  • Description


    I am early in a raw land pioneering project! I am making inroads to a beautiful piece of forested mountain land that includes a rich cove and beautiful soil.

    I am applying permacultural principles as I shape the land, create human habitat, graze animals, and manage the forest.

    I am building with my own milled lumbers, grazing and clearing land with cows, cultivating a timber crop and developing smaller homesteads.

    Internet is limited by access to my phone(verizon) which I can hotspot for you!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    I have a fairly broad and long experience In sustainable agriculture and ecological design. I have a good bit of knowledge and principles to share about responsible food production and resource management. Also would imagine you can learn some things from helping me with building! Will be happy to help you learn anything you are trying to!

    I have such a broad project that I can probably use whatever strengths you have! Right now, I'd love help clearing land, building a pole barn and cabin, shaping the landscape and working on infrastructure for humans and cows.

  • Accommodation


    There is a 8x10 room in the barn that has a small window and electricity. I live rustically i some ways but We can set you up a kitchen area and can provide you with showers in my trailer. The space you will be saying in is a pioneering project unto itself as the room is not entirely finished. You will have a say in how the room is set up! Good if you are prepared for camping level accomodations(you will be pleasantly surprised if you have these low expectations!)

    I can provide you with fairly healthy meals on the days we work together! My strongest asset is the beef I have raised myself!

    I live in Barnardsville, which has a pretty healthy smattering of interesting rural people. We are a 25 minute drive from asheville which I make pretty regularly. I'd be happy to include you in some of my town trips if you need transport. I also may be able to give you access to a vehicle(depending on specific arrangment between us)

    We have very near amazing hiking in the national forest (and even on my property!)
