Wanted: Grower for Organic Growing Project near Hammond

Looking for someone to manage and/or invest in an organic growing project that has funding from a USDA grant to erect a high growing tunnel. Located on 23 acres about 13 miles from the SE Louisiana University campus. Everything there is organic, pasture, forest, and areas for open fields and areas for the tunnel.  Also a small quarry/lake/pond approx. an

acre and part of the land is wild life sanctuary – no hunting.

No money to pay anyone at this point, although there is a historic house (1817) that is in the renovation process and could function as a place to live. There is also an old cabin (1929) that can be renovated.

The need is to get the project started ASAP – before March 2013 or the grant goes away.

Looking for a self-starter that would be interested in working with the landowner to get the project started.

Owner is open to any proposals at this time.
If interested, please contact: Amanda P. Hoover – aphoover@live.com or call 504.458.1646.
