I am looking for a permanent situation where I can contribute my skills, tools and energy in a rural situation where folks are building self-sufficiency through cottage industry and/or small-scale food production (WA, OR, ID, MT, BC). I would be looking for a place that offers simple housing for myself and a small wage or share of revenues generated or the ability to earn money independently. My skills and interests include: Micro-farming, organic gardening, raising dairy goats (10+ years), cheese-making, sustainable homesteading, renewable energy, green construction, political organizing, computer skills (i.e. professional web design, web-based activism, digital graphics, databases & spreadsheets), writing and editing, verbal communication, teaching, intentional community, permaculture, photography, herbology, cooking and music. I am a Certified Permaculture Designer. I have 20 years farming experience. At 55 years of age (male), I seek an opportunity where I am not called upon to carry the whole weight of a project, but I am healthy and I have enough stamina to contribute valuable energy to a team effort. No money to invest, just skills, some tools, creativity and humor.
