Only a few people I know own land but the rest of us are using urban plots, gurilla gardening and allotments to grow food. All of us who don't own land are in (mostly poor quality) rented accommodation and many are in minimum wage jobs or unemployed.
I'm in Ireland and the UK though (I split my time) but I'd say there are more millennial permies here than older or younger ones

My experience tells me that you just have to trust yourself and follow your desire and the people aligned with what you're after will show up. Same goes for a "job" or land or a partner or anything you feel strongly about
