Hi! I am currently in California working on a permaculture project testing out some experimental methods of my own. One is installing a garden where a bulldozer had scraped away topsoil leaving the ground barren, infertile and hard packed. The other is installing a micro-farm in a meadow without disturbing the soil, microbial networks, and bio-films, but instead plugging into them, enhancing them and enhancing the native soil foodweb.
Once the experiments have yielded results which will be from now through fall, I have not decided whether I should stay here to scale up and expand, or if I should really try to find a place where my vision can develop and I can dig in my roots. I do not own the land I'm using now.
It has occurred to me that what might be best is to find an intentional community that could use me for my knowledge, experience, my firm grip on biological horticulture and natural farming and my vision, and who really wanted to create something and had the laborers to do it.
It has also occurred to me that what might be best to really make something happen is to find a mate and farm partner in a comparable woman.
Maybe ideally you have land that we can build something on, or maybe we stay here, or mraybe we find something together? I am open to any of that, but I see my ideal mate as owning her own land, but again, that is not required.
First of all I am a single parent. I have an 11 y/o boy who is homeschooled. I am also broke because I am a man of my vision and pursue my passion over materiel wealth or a false sense of security.
Much more of a starving artist than a scrub or a bum, but starving is not quite the right word. Maybe I am ultimately just a forest mendicant whose is trying to improve their surroundings to make a life of less work that is more conducive to deep meditation that I will enjoy in another lifetime? Either way, the one thing money can't by is real food with actual nutrients and minerals which is what I'm working for and soon, it maybe a little later if I move, but soon enough I will have plenty of produce to sell.
I am 44, 5 11, 160, brown/blue, strong, in good shape and becoming healthier while gaining weight due to my having quit a 32 year cigarette smoking habit about 4 months ago.
People tell me that I am handsome.
I have been called "the most intelligent person I have ever met... " on multiple occasions.
I have a meditation practice, and consider life, all its experiences, hardships, blessings and choices as a spiritual path and I consider it a duty to work on my self and to strive for authenticity and honesty.
I am an innovative thinker, independent, and have a very firm grip on biological horticulture, and Natural Farming techniques.
Not looking for "traditional" roles, not looking to dominate and control, much more interested in working hand in hand and mind in mind, in what we offer eachother, and become as an entity together.
