Hello all! Happy Spring!
My name is Cassandra and I finally graduated college and ready to hit
the road! Me and my pup Sam are looking for a great fit for to continue
our education. We are from upstate NY and are willing to travel just
about anywhere in the country to find the right place. In short, I have a
solid base of knowledge in small scale- organic vegetable farming
operations, dairy, horses, and CSA. Where I have less experience is with
animal husbandry and would really like to expand in this area. When it
comes down to it, I am most interested in perfecting my knowledge so
that I can own and operate or co-operate a homestead that is surrounded
by a friendly community and dedicated to living close to the earth. This
is a very broad statement and is meant to be. Basically, you have two
hardworking, energetic, and dedicated hands at your disposal and in
turn, I would like to learn MOST about - Homesteading, soil health,
animal husbandry, bio dynamics, medicinal uses of surrounding
environment, canning, preserving, honeybees, permiculture,
horticulture, and you name it! As you can see, I'm not too picky. What I
am not interested in is a farm where I am simply a labor hand. I have
done that before and it just doesn't pay off. I am hoping to build on
some of the relationships created.
I have two summer classes to finish up before it's official making my
arrival a bit of a late one. I have no pressing time commitments and
will be willing to stay as long as needed. I do have eventual plans of
getting a TESL certification to teach English abroad and would like,
ideally, to find a place that offers a fair stipend and housing.
Most likely, if you get this message, it is because I am extremely
interested in your operation. It is a pre-written message meant to
contact a broad number of people but I hope that you understand that
this process can be somewhat time consuming and that we can talk in
depth in further messages. I hope all is well for all of you.
Happy planting and smile wide!
Cassandra and Sam
