Farming Status and Plans
Years actively farming:10+
Description of farming status, plans, and practices:
Currently looking for land to start or continue mission-driven growing after 10+ years of experience including running my own farm business for 3 years and managing others for 2+. My preferred practices lean towards low-till, but I accept the usefulness of cultivation when necessary. Food accessiblity and developing agricultural ecosystems are twin pillars in the work I do. I want to continue working closely with food shelves and gleaning organizations. I have worked in and developed multiple farm systems that incorporate livestock, perrenials, pollinator habitats, and more to build a thriving food landscape. My goals now are to combine these experiences and channel them into a service I can provide to my community.
