Derek Clark

I'm looking for hands on educational opportunities to gain self-sufficiency through agriculture. As a person of color I would like to one day reach people like me that have disconnected from the land.

More info: I'm really interested in permaculture and the food forest concept. It may be fringe or obscure but I love the idea of a sustainable, abundant ecosystem that takes time to develop but grows in abundance over time. Also interested in no-till methods and regenerative agriculture. No experience with animal husbandry and definitely a novice but I've been gardening the last 3 years and my interest continues to grow. I'm on here just to see what opportunities are out there to go further down this path.

Personal experience and production goals summary:

I've been gardening the last 3 years and each year the passion seems to grow more. I've been looking at agricultural practices that are regenerative and more natural based. Food forests, no-till, permaculture, more closed system type farming. I think were coming to a crossroads where people are losing choice and lack awareness regarding the food that's available to them. I consider food a means to empower people and being a person of color I see opportunities for upliftment through self-sufficiency and learning tangible skills. I'm on here to learn more and attempt to take action towards that idea.
