I am a disabled Navy SEAL Veteran practicing natural connections with the land by offering “Shinrin-yoku” or “Forest Therapy Walks”. Also, in collaboration with the land I work with and gentle horses. My farming interests are with herb gardening, fruit trees, bees and allowing the natural landscape to be as self-sustaining as possible utilizing certain German farming techniques; among others. I have dedicated the last 7 years to working with fellow Veterans by offering emotional, spiritual and environmental wellness connections with the land. Presently in search of a small piece of land individually or in collaboration with existing like-minded stewards.

I've known Rob Foley for more than ten years. He is my dear friend, my brother, and my colleague in helping veterans survive in a civilian world. A Navy SEAL, with a long list of extraordinary accomplishments in his years of service and afterwards. Rob has found his gifts are truly in the world of wellness practices, and, especially, in his work with horses and veterans. His dream is to have a farm as a healing sanctuary for fellow veterans, using all of his many healing gifts and practices.

Seeker(s) past and/or present farming experience:

I have been gardening and farming for over fifteen years. In 2006 I was a MOFGA apprentice at a permaculture homestead and tree nursery in Franklin, Maine. From there, I moved on to develop my own permaculture- focused homestead with gardens and livestock including poultry, dairy goats, honey bees, and meat rabbits, which I tended for 8 years. In 2013 I was accepted into the MOFGA Journeyperson program, initiating 4 growing seasons of running my own cut flower farm. I grew on a half acre and marketed to wholesale accounts, studio florists, farmer's market, CSA, and did wedding design. In addition to my own farm, I have worked on 2 other flower farms in Maine as co-manager and harvest crew. With over 20 years of self-study in herbalism, today I am interested in a dual approach: using permaculture and biodynamic methods to grow medicinal herbs and flowers, and building a pollinator and native plant sanctuary. My desire is to grow medicinals to sell to established herbalists in the state; to develop a native plant nursery for retail and wholesale sales; and to offer folks educational resources around the how's and why's of growing and maintaining native plants and their vital role in the web of life, particularly through the lens of pollinator habitat.
