I am a bit intrigued to see what sort of people are on this site. So far from reading I see many amusing views....
So I'm 28 and grew up on the east coast of Puerto Rico in Fajardo and moved with my parents to London, England when I was fourteen. After high school I stayed in London and SE England for another five years and worked in the London underground scene and the British festival circuit doing stage set-up, decor, lighting, sound and teaching juggling workshops @ festivals. Then I moved to Boulder, CO where I practiced body work when I was not working. I detached from my previous lifestyle and lived in the mountains about 20 miles from town. The snow was lovely. Then I went to California to work on a farm in the emerald triangle where I stayed for five months.... Once I was done with that I went back to Puerto Rico and spent the last three years working on different types of boats and learning about sailing and fixing sailboats. I now live in Florida with my family and am looking into starting a sustainable co-op/CSA/educational farm using permaculture/no till farming and other principles with some other locals.
I get bored sometimes cause I just got here and havent met too many people as I'm quite involved in transforming our large yard into a food forest.
I love reading non fiction, listening to all kinds of music, singing, spending time with my niece, working every possible moment I can in our garden, trying to figure out the food air deal, and finally trying to share that which I'm passionate about with others.
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ... a bit long winded ...
so if you are interested in having a friend just send me a message.
I have done some experimentation in Puerto Rico in various different micro climates there but nothing very serious. One of the people I am working with was showing me the system he has begun on his property and he has a long background in horticulture and in organic growing practices.
The best experience is doing it. I am making plans for next spring on my family's property but that is small scale and not for the outside world as we dont have infrastructure to support a larger project on this small piece of land.
I have found a Awsome property in North Carolina. It is 52 acres with a large creek and pond. It is totally raw. No one has lived on it since 1968. I am currently trying to come up with the funding to purchase it. Also thinking about.ymaybe going in with ogre people to do a joint effort. It is is in zone 7 with a great growing season. In this zone you can get almost two crops a year. This property is 90 percent woods.
