We are a couple with many years of organic farming and restorative ecology experience seeking a plot of land to tend and grow with. Our primary interests are refining our application of beneficial farming practices to promote the health of the land and surrounding ecosystem.
We are a couple of reasonable folks with a real itch to care for some land. We have two cats and a small dog. We have a passion for sustainable farming and fostering thriving ecosystems. Our ideal site would be one with a history of organic production and established perennial crops and flowers.
We worked four years helping to establish and maintain an organic vegetable farm and were personally charged with greenhouse and fowl management. On the farm, we participated in or directed a wide variety of tasks, everything from making soil mix to harvesting to market stands and organizing a CSA. Since then, we have overseen native plant and production vegetable nurseries and are currently involved in landscaping with a focus on prairie and grassland restoration. We are well-versed in many farming practices, and are particularly fascinated in and attentive to soil health. We have a long history of community outreach regarding agriculture, having been members of the local Farmers Union, co-founders of a local land revitalization group, and Nick is currently a garden instructor at a local Montessori school.
We would love to continue the farm's existing legacy and support its community ties while establishing additional revenue streams, chiefly value-added products and a native plant nursery. We believe a strong farm is a multifaceted one, and would be very interested in maintaining historic clients while pursuing new avenues of involvement and production.
