Biodynamic Consultant/Farmer

Dear Denise, 

My name is Jason Harris. I saw your ad on the Biodynamic Farming and Gardening Association Website. What a wonderful coincidence. I moved to Maui a few years ago to promote the Biodynamic movement after presenting a class in prepmaking at the Body and Soil Conference '09. I was the chief prepmaker and representative from the Josephine Porter Institute of Applied Biodynamics.  Several returns later, I was inspired to leave the Institute and make Maui my home. I currently live in Kula, modest yet productive garden, chickens, a few sheep and a dairy goat.  I'm currently fostering BD programs and initiatives with the Waldorf School here in Kula and in Haiku with an independant client.  I have years of professional experience with Applied Biodynamic agriculture, I am very interested in this position and look forward to meeting you and discussing possibilities. I would be glad to forward my resume by the weekend. Thank you, Jason

Biodynamic farm apprentice on Maui available

Hello Jason and Denise, I am a registered BD farm apprentice. I have complete several skills on the checklist with Haven Rise Farm up in Oregon. I was very disapointed to have missed the meet up in Northern Cal this past Feb. I am here on Maui with a friend from Canada who is also interested in volunteering with a biodynamic farm or Camphill. We are both students of spiritual motivational speaking, we were recently at the Wayne Dyer lecture this past weekend at Seabury Hall in Makawao, and the Nick Vujicic presentation. Please call us if you have space for us or know a farm that has room for us. Our # on Maui is - 310-526-1989. Neil W.
