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

I have been gardening and farming for over a decade. 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 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, which initiated 4 growing seasons of running my own cut flower farm, growing on a half acre and marketing to wholesale accounts, studio florists, farmer's market, CSA, and 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 focusing on permaculture and biodynamic growing of medicinal herbs and flowers. I am particularly interested in growing medicinals to be sold to established herbalists in the state, in addition to maintaining ample and diverse pollinator habitat including native and medicinal species.
