Elaborate on the farming practices you plan on using.Depends upon the owner. We will either need housing, or at least be able to house an RV on the property.
Please elaborate on the kind of additional training/information that would help you:I have a small freelancer business, working as a virtual assistant, and also providing promotional videos and presentations for crowd funding campaigns, which have ranged from supporting veterans in the US, after school programs, educational promotions for young women in Africa, and providing clean water to tribes in Africa.
