Earth Ways permaculture farm has a unique learning opportunity on offer.
We are looking for someone to join Danielle and Ludwig on the farm for a whole growing season.

It does not include food, that we will buy and cook together, food that we produce on the farm and local wild food are free. Food is basically mostly vegan, unless so desired, we can have some eggs or butcher a surplus male farm bird or process some road kill.
