I was going to post about “Where is the permaculture for elderly” but there’s a much bigger problem. It’s to do with burning and using fossil fuels. Personally saw this coming 25 years ago and started taking action. Anyhow this is my post:  
I’m going to be 71 in a couple of months and have been interested and actively trying to form a Permaculture Based Intentional Community for 20 years for all ages.  Presently we (wife) have a debt free, functional, diverse operating homestead with housing and all kind of opportunities for others of all ages to live very sustainable.
We raise water buffalo that live to be 30 years old and at 70 I worry about their future, plus in general what going to happen to our farm. Although, I feel there may be nothing to worry about because of Climate Genocide. Still I’d love to see other earth friendly folks of all ages continue what we started here.
My father died of complication from dementia and age has slow me down. Although I still function better than anyone that been here lately.  Mainly because of the Weston A. Price Foundation and their information about traditional foods and diet. Over the summer I got a call form a 90 year old that wanted to join us but he never did make it. True we really need older people with younger people but seems a lot of young folks are suffering from some kind of damage either from process food, drug over use, toxic environment, PTSD, or mental abuse. True I’m not really the sharpest pencil either but I’m always trying to learn more to do better. I can’t change the world nor help everyone but we presently have a good start at a closed loop permaculture focused farm that could support a few others of all ages wanting to live in an earth friend community.
No, our Homestead isn’t perfect but with others help could be close to that zero fossil fuel world we need to live in.
We’re in Central Florida which has its problems but we’re wet and warm and presently nature thrives on these conditions. Interested? ecofarmfl@yahoo.com    
I'm doing laundry! Look how clean this tiny ad is:
