I've only been reading on permaculture/homesteading for the last month, but I believe it's something I've been searching for my whole life. If possible(and helpful), I'd be taking a horticulture degree online while helping out.
I can handle my own expenses: I'm looking to build something I can look back on, and be proud of. I'd be hoping to eventually set up a tiny home, a pond, and a greenhouse. I'm not great with people, but I am kind and good natured.
I also know the weather, and have local roots.
Very eager to learn, and experiment!
Look me up, I'd love to come help, and see if we're a fit!
