Hahaha, like seeing myself at that age. I was about eleven and a half when I first began to "see through the matrix" and learn about the world's problems. Four years later, I am just biding my time and learning skills (and experimenting in my backyard garden) until I can get land of my own.

Awesome man! So you're 15/16? If you can, check out the Dervaes family in Pasadena (pathtofreedom.com). They're too busy for tours nowadays, so they only take some school classes. Maybe Jules would let you sneak in on one of those days. Or maybe you can offer to volunteer to get a view. EcoHome could be a resource for you. I think they still do tours of area eco-homes. Check our L.A. Ecovillage too if you haven't already. There is a permaculture food forest community garden in L.A., but I can't remember where it is and its name. I'll post if if I can find the info. There are quite a few people in L.A. that can help you. I so wish I was still living there.
