I’m looking for a person or two willing to learn and help out at Turtle Crossing Farm this year. The commitment would be one, possibly two days a week. It would be an opportunity to learn about the small homestead lifestyle, possibilities and complexities. It will be an opportunity to learn skills such as gardening,

animal tracking, music, and the like. The farm is organic (but not certified.) Payment would be in knowledge, practice, mentorship and a share in whatever food we produce. I’ll be traveling some this spring and the volunteer may elect to stay at the farmhouse while I’m gone. The farm has been a little dormant the past few years, but this is a year of regrowth and renewal.

If you think you want to be a small-scale homesteader, come learn how to do it and what the life really like. (Hint: It’s pretty amazing, but not always easy.) Position is currently open. Please contact me if interested, at mj7.black.well@gmail.com.

The farm is located about 30 miles west of Blacksburg, and is an extraordinarily beautiful place.  valleyview2
