Located in north east CT, home on 12 acres just outside a small city, great place to live with lots of opportunities.

Hi Bill! Could describe more of what you are offering to fellow permies?

Is it like a room? A place to just park your car?

Or is it more of like, "our land is a canvas, and we are inviting artists to come here and do something with our canvas"?

Dave, Thanks for your question!  It's like let's create a homestead that serves our health and also acts as an entrepreneurial brainstorming hotspot.  I vision a highly organized and productive team capable of putting plans into action.  The goal is to learn about and succeed at accumulating wealth and then be able to apply our permacultural values to much larger endeavors than we would otherwise be able to fund.  I think it will be a slow journey but kept enjoyable by maintaining a healthy homestead and lifestyle, and being part of a strong community.

Hey Shaun!  There are a bunch of lakes nearby and a river that runs through the city.  It is indeed a great place, there are a lot of cool businesses and other attractions just a few miles away.

So like: land owner donates use of the land, assembles team of talented permies who donate labor and talent to create a profitable business which allows all involved to permacultureize with more resources than if they were solo?  Am i reading that right?  Could be good.

Might be a good idea to research some Coops and intentional communities that run businesses and see what ,kind of contracts or leases or constituions they use to ensure that everyone is working with the same understanding of who gets what from whom.  
12 acres in CT aint cheap, and theres certainly large markets willing to spend money for virtuous food in the region.  Whats your soil like?

Hey Joseph!  That is the gist of it but exploring business outside of agriculture in order to establish a financially sound entity as quickly as possible.  I am also in favor of people creating individual income streams, especially though homestead and intentional community related activities.  The soil onsite is in good health.

I'm interested!   I have 25+ years of farm living under my belt, and am looking for something a bit more cooperative these days. I have farm design and system experience, not much hands on with crops or gardening however.

As for income streams, I have a couple, and given the right property would love to implement some ideas i've been working out.
I look forward to learning more!

The idea for bringing in money is to develop and utilize high income skills.  Do you have the ability to get rich people on the phone, have an intelligent conversation with them, and offer something of value?

Bump for an awesome opportunity and place to live.
There are many great city attractions just a couple of miles away such as a food-coop, a park with community gardens, skatepark, dirtjumps, gyms, brew pub, and pretty much whatever else you may need.

I am also open to people that are not as entrepreneurially ambitious.  Free place to live for a permaculture compatible housesitter
 
Anderson gave himself the promotion. So I gave myself this tiny ad:
It's like binging on 7 seasons of your favorite netflix permaculture show
