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.
