Seeker(s) is considering the following arrangement(s):
  • Apprentice with a Farm Owner for a year or more
Seeker(s) past and/or present farming experience:

I do not have any past or present farming experience, however I have done a lot of gardening in my small but fruitful vegetable garden at my house on the Maine Coast. I am a first year student at College of the Atlantic, and will be taking a class next term called Sustainable Food Systems. I also plan on volunteering at either Peggy Rockefeller Farm or Beech Hill farm when my schedule allows for it, and hopefully doing work study there at some point. Because I am so interested in farming, I have done extensive research on the topic. I plan on doing an independent study on Regenerative Agriculture and its vitality in the fight against climate change during my second year at COA.

We are college graduates with degrees in science and have a passion for caring for the land through organic practices. We are currently participating in MOFGA's Journeyperson program.

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.
