Farming Status and Plans

Part time

Description of farming status, plans, and practices:

I have plans of organic medicinal herb farming in the 2020 season. I plan on starting small-- and would be open for partnership to build a business. I am currently enrolled in a Agricultural Business course at University of Vermont to support in my business development. For the past year I have been working for an regenerative hemp farm organization based in the Hudson Valley. I also have experiencing with community and urban farming in Washington, DC., during the years of 2015-2018 while I was studying Global Health and Environmental Sustainability.
