Additional Information

My family is in the process of developing a small agrihood. We have 11 acres and want to use about 2 of that for the garden. There will be a few houses developed around a pond and a small market garden on the east side of property.  We are in a position to help a farmer get a start or an expansion to an existng farm. We would like this to be a project that will include an involvement with the local elementary school to incorporate this into their curriculim.  

We will be researching grants and other ways to help financially. We have been sharing our plan with the neighborhood and have recieved such positive feed back and are really excited about the energy of this project.

We are looking for someone who is passionate about regenerative/organic/ and plain healthy, local foods. Someone who understands that involving the neighborhood in the plan is a win-win for everyone. And someone who is a forward thinking-out of the box brainstorming kind of person who sees the sky is the limit when we all work together!
