Briefly describe your current occupation(s) and responsibilities and list previous agricultural employment and experiences. If you are currently farming or ranching, please state the size, type(s), and location of the operation.At the present time I am employed as a carpenter with a Missoula based general contractor learning developing a new skill set. All of my farming experience was done in northern New Hampshire at Meadowstone Farm. I worked at Meadowstone for four growing seasons (2008-2011) and also completed an internship (for university) in Ethiopia, Africa (Fall 2009). From 2012-2015 I taught high school science in Virginia and lead a student run community garden. My skill set includes, vegetable and fruit propagation, composting, cover cropping, minimal-till, and extensive green house work. I have also been well versed in raising pigs, chickens, and goats for milk and cheese. I believe my experiences would enable me to have a successful operation in a short amount of time.
