About Carrie Jones

I have been an employee and intern on a few different farms. I decided to take a PDC after trying my own farm project and feeling overwhelmed, over-worked and under-informed. I did a Permaculture and Ecovillage Design Course at Lost Valley Educational Center in Oregon. Following that I apprenticed at an amazing farm in Oregon called SweetWell Farm. The focus of my apprenticeship was learning to work with draft horses.

Currently I am farming my family's three acre urban farm. 2011 will be my second season. I grow fresh cut flowers and sell bouquets at the farmer's market. I am planning on training the baby goats we are expecting in June to work in harness! I also grow some food for my family and neighbors.

Speaking of permaculture: It has been a huge inspiration to me as I navigate and explore my relationship with the land. Also my relationship with my community. My good friend and I started a permaculture guild here and we did it in a very permaculture way. It has taken off and she and I are hardly part of it any more! We vowed only to be involved as long as we were serving it and it was serving us- and that fluctuates.

The light is returning, but we are still in the darkest days. Time to order seeds, review and renew farm plans, gather inspiration...
