Description of farming experience

My wife, Nika and I raise two daughters - Ella 9 & Mira 4. Mike studied permaculture and regenerative farming and gardening while studying at Penn State University and Nika studied similar techniques in Quebec and acquired a certification in Permaculture in British Columbia as well as an Herbal Studies certification from David Winston in New Jersey. We have both WWOOFed for many years and have acquired training and experience on commercial farms as well as our own homesteading experience. In addition to having completed courses on Permaculture and Agroforestry, we are passionate about learning and are constantly expanding our knowledge of these topics.

Additional Information

Nika and I have been working on and around farms for over 20 years.  Our passion lies in creating multi-layered agricultural systems as well as providing education through hands-on living and learning internships (similar to WWOOFing). We are raising two daughters - Ella 9 & Mira 4.  We enjoy creating systems that help feed the community in which they are immersed.  Mike has a small business designing and helping people build wooden taper-wall yurts called Dickinsons Reach Yurts. 

We see land "ownership" very much more like a reciprocal stewardship in which we care for the land and it also cares for us.
