Description

I am looking to create/develop a diversified permaculture based semi-urban intensive market garden and silvopasture operation, ideally with adjacent forested land with potential for a small forestry operation. 

I am currently working at Provider Farm in Salem, CT and have worked both livestock and vegetable farms in the US and in Finland. I have had a sustaining interest in sustainable food production for over 10 years. I am particularly drawn to intensive small scale agriculture and have been primarily influenced by Eliot Coleman, Bryan O'Hara, and Jean Martin Fortier. Additionally, I have a broad range of skills born from an insatiable curiosity, including: mechanical, carpentry/woodworking, welding, and graphic design.
