I'm not sure an "apprenticeship" is what I'm looking for, but I'm happy to fill this out anyway.

I can't remember where I heard about the program, other than "somewhere on the internet a while back."

I'll be able to visit/volunteer/apprentice during this winter, I'll be rather busy all summer and fall.

I've lived with new and unknown people in urban settings several times, I anticipate I will be just as or more able to do so in a rural area.

Can I pay for food? Most likely, the big issue would be transportation. Is there a grocery store within 20 miles?

Will I be able to visit... before I visit? Sure, I can visit twice.

I do not smoke.

I will eat nearly anything.

Including and especially your farm's meat.

My primary form of transportation is a mid 70s-vintage Schwinn LeTour. The farthest we've ever traveled together was Chicago to Pittsburgh.

Resources to support myself... What will I need? Are you talking about money, or shelter/tools? In any case I will have them.

Medical/emotional/psychological issues... I tend to sleep about 10-12 hours a day in the winter, when I will be most able to visit. Other than that no.

Other Considerations:

Special Interests:
Homebrewing, Bicycles, Linux

Do I have strong ideological views?
You could say that.

Three interesting things

three things folk oughta know

Other farms? As I said, I'm actively involved with Landslide Community Farm.

Rough accomodations do not worry me.
