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
