Hello, we at Willows Bend Farm in Dinwiddie, VA, could use some extra help. We do have one intern now (also a vet) who is staying in a travel trailer on the property, but we may be able to accommodate another RV van. We raise heirloom vegetables in our greenhouse and high tunnel and garden using the principles of permaculture and would like to get into forest farming. We also raise American Guinea Hogs, chickens and turkeys, and co-own some alpacas that live on a farm nearby. We have a happy balance here, but the right person could be of value here. Let me know if you are interested.
