Farming Status and Plans

Farming status:

Not currently farming

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

I am looking for land to serve as a basis for teaching gardening/farming methods using a permaculture and no-till framework. This will provide education, and possibly local employment. It will also provide fresh produce for local sale. A portion of the property may be used to explore or experiment with carbon farming technique and evaluation. Possible future structures may include hoop houses, caretaker's cottage, solar panels, aquaponic structure. Existing barns or sheds are helpful but not required.
