Hi! We're Alex and Rosie.
Where to begin. We met in 2014 at a boarding school in Arizona and developed a passion together for agriculture, nature, animals, and sustainability. We both attend university, majoring in business management and are going to add sustainability double majors. Although we're young, we're definitely a power couple. Going to a boarding school in the middle of the Coconino Forest, we grew into incredibly responsible, independent young adults. We have extensive experience with the outdoors: Alex managed an orchard, vineyard, and garden. He also made his own aquaponics system with tilapia, and raised 50 chickens. Last summer, he built a rocket-stove from scratch, completely revived an entire property's land (garden, nursery, general maintenance). I, Rosie, primarily worked with horses and animals, being a horseback rider/trainer for about 10 years. I've trained horses and riders of all ages through natural horsemanship, including training a wild mustang, but also have a huge passion for gardening and sustainability.
We are intrigued by agriculture, permaculture, food systems and nutrition. We also always try our best to stay updated on news and the economy. We could (most likely will) talk to you for hours about sustainability in food chains, the stock market, and business ideas. Talking to people and learning about others are some of our favorite things to do! Together, we love to volunteer, hike, go to the beach, cook, meet new people and develop gardens! If you're looking for a bright and easy-keeping couple who are self-starters and diligent in our work (but know how to have a good time!), look no further.
In the summer of 2019, we hope to learn about van conversions, home remodeling, electricity, insulation, and infrastructure of homes and how we can make them sustainable in our lives.
