Needs and Offers

OK, up and running. This started as a list compiled at D Acres during the November regional meeting and typed up by Matthew Delorey. There is also a list of needs and yields from the original 'PINE' envisioning meeting at Jono and Kempers house, maybe someone can post that? Please feel free to add yourself. There are plenty of blank rows in the table when you click 'edit'. This is very interesting to read, but you can use the search feature above if you are looking for anything in particular to offer or receive. Its also relatively easy to roll down the page and just read the locations. If anyone has any other ideas for formating this (ie by more specific location), go ahead and try it out. Please remember to update your listing as needs are met and you have more/ different things to offer!! ----

Need: commercial-scale supplier of vegetables, grains, dairy, and non-dairy substitutes

Do you know of a relatively large permaculture farm, or network of them, that could fill orders from a large food-product company? That company is trying to green its products and operations. They just heard of permaculture and like the idea of buying ingredients from such a farm or community. I act as their agent in this research of sources. Who should I talk to, to find this El Dorado of permaculture? Or, if you have a better idea of how to supply large volumes of product, how should I change my approach? Please write to greg.proefrock@presidio.edu . Thank you. - Greg

Seeking Landshare in Essex, VT

A couple of lovely, permaculture aware property owners in northern Vermont are seeking a land management / agricultural tenant for their 40-acre residential property. The site is a residential parcel located in Essex, VT, consisting of mixed deciduous forest, open marshland, coniferous forest, and riparian ecosystems. Existing land uses include vegetable gardens, a small orchard, rainwater collection, solar hot water on the existing home, and a proposed commercial scale solar PV array.

A significant portion of the site remains under-utilized and the owners would love to find someone with the skills and passion to put it to productive use. These folks are seeking to establish a relationship with an individual or small group who are willing to work with them to develop a plan of action for the site and carry out the work of building productive enterprises on the site in the areas of agro-forestry, bee-keeping, diversified vegetable, and/or mycological endeavors depending on skill-sets, background, and funding. In return the property owners seek a flexible rent arrangement consisting of a combination of work-trade, crop-share, and cash rent payments.

Interested folks should be prepared to develop and present a clear and thorough permaculture site analysis, design plan, timeline for development, and an outline of the resources they would bring to the site.

Please send a short letter of introduction via email including:
  1. Your name, address and contact info
  2. The amount of time you expect to have available for implementing a plan on this site.
  3. A brief synopsis of your agricultural, landscape design, and/or entrepreneurial business background.

Deadline for submitting letter of intent: September 30, 2014.

We’ll send you the existing site analysis maps of the property so you can begin planning a concept design and business plan for the site. The property owners would like to review a site design proposal from interested folks. Design proposals should account for the existing site conditions, as well as local climate reports and any additional analysis that is relevant to the site and your plan.

Please contact the homeowner, Iris Banks with questions, requests for photos, and to submit an intro letter: iris97@gmail.com

This is a diverse, beautiful and very unique parcel with lots of potential waiting to be unlocked!

Farmer/s Needed
We are seeking a farmer or farmers for the 2014 growing season

Open View Farm in Conway, MA (http://www.openviewfarm.org/) has for the past 5 years served as an incubator farm for new or young farmers ready to apply their farming knowledge and eager to experiment, learn and grow. We are a supportive community who believe strongly in the local food movement and have land to share. We tend sheep, chickens, a llama, a donkey, cats and a dog (http://www.openviewfarm.org/ our-animal-companions/), and especially, family and friends (http://www.openviewfarm.org/ people-on-the-farm/)!

The Farm has great soil and southern exposure. We've been able to grow all kinds of vegetables here: celery, peas, lettuces, kale, arugula, spinach, pak choi, hardneck garlic, heirloom tomatoes, eggplants, specialty peppers, okra, green beans, tomatillos, parsnips, beets, carrots, squash, cabbages, herbs, and much more. We also have delicious perennials--asparagus, apples, raspberries, blueberries, and sorrel. There are tools, fencing, cold frames and lots of the necessary materials organized and available for use. We will prepare and deliver tilled fields.
See the gardens here: http://www.openviewfarm.org/ our-gardens/. Be sure to look through the sbobet photos!

Past farmers have focused their attention in different ways, including soil development and testing, growing for market, growing for family, friends and educational purposes, as well as considering the viability of a CSA. These endeavors are the farmer's to determine and we offer support, encouragement and sometimes extra hands for help. In the past we have happily hosted planting and harvesting days finished off with a meal provided by our family.

We are seeking a farmer or farmers for the Ruby888 2014 growing season. If you are interested, please contact Aimee at either aimeegelnaw@gmail.com or (413) 475-2244. We would love to meet you to see if we all make a good fit!external image cleardot.gif

Mortgage pre-qualified first-time homebuyers (some exceptions) for May 15th Lottery. Deadline for applications is May 1, 2009, 4:30 p.m. A wait-list is formed through a lottery in order to ensure that the selling process is fair.
Extremely energy efficient homes with solar electric and solar hot water are available in a 20-home condominium community in Greenfield, MA. Space has been left open for a large community garden which is something all the buyers so far are very excited about. This is a great opportunity for low and moderate income buyers to purchase an amazing house in a community of people committed to energy efficiency and a locally based way of life. Income limits are surprisingly high - for example, a family of four still qualifies as "moderate" income if they make $85,360! There's a lot of info on our website - take a look!

Kelly
Chittenden County, Vermont
Looking for folks to help out occasionally on a homestead in exchange for ... homecooked meals, home made bread, garden produce, possibly occasionally some cash, possibly a tenting or little house site (for full time or "country retreat"). Just getting started with shifting from "regular" gardening to permaculture sbobet. We may be able to offer room and board during the college semesters.
Land to practice on and harvest from while you are in the area (thinking of UVM Sustainably program majors, stuck in Burlington with no land) . Sharing my knowledge of gardening, homesteading skills, greywater systems, waste systems, wild edibles and farmers markets. I keep imagining that there are probably folks like me who are learning about permaculture concepts and are excited to try them, but have no land. We have land but not enough time... you have some time but no land. We'd love to talk to you about using an area of our land (10 acres, mostly wooded) to try out things and you get the harvest while you're here in the area.
