  • Profile description
  • My name is Desmond, 32, and for the past 10 years, I've been living in Phoenix originally from New Jersey.

    I'm deciding to look for a host farm with the intention to learn a new set of skills that I can apply towards my goal of sustainable, off-the-grid living. I have a desire to break out of the 9-5 office lifestyle but realized I don't have the skills needed to do so. I'm looking for an experience in the form of an internship/apprenticeship so I can really dive deep and learn the ins and out of farming and sustainable living.

    I would love to learn how to manage a farm from all aspects; planning, planting, harvesting, and beyond. The sense of being part of a family/community working towards common goals is also a big priority for me.

    I'm planning on starting to Wwoof full-time starting in October if possible. I won't have a van or an RV so if it is the winter months in a cooler climate I would appreciate in-door housing and would be open to an outside situation if needed during the warmer months.

    Besides being coachable and reliable I have business marketing skills specifically online with search engine optimization and managing websites and paid advertising.

    Currently, I have two years of experience volunteering on a horse ranch.
