Hello, my name is Ryan. I have been living on Lopez for a little over a year.
I am looking for (full time- part-time) work to help farmers in a production garden.
My goal for farming is to gain experience from many perspectives and practices that provide high-quality food to their community and follow climate-conscious land management practices. I graduated from Fairhaven College with a degree in marketing Sustainable agriculture and have 2 years' worth of farming in the San Juans and Bellingham. I am passionate about farming and community and hope that I can be a part of yours.
I have experience working and volunteering on farms for a little over two years consecutively.
The places I have worked have been
Warm Valley Farm- Orcas island
Midnight's Farm -Lopez
Outback Farm- Western Washington.
I love farming and working hard with my hands. I have confidence in my ability to problem solve and do the work that needs to be done in and around the garden.
