Louisiana Permies - Where are you now?

Hello from New Orleans, Louisiana!

I have been searching for months for groups, forums, or any band of misfits in Louisiana actively working their farm / homestead who is in need of a volunteer to help on their property.

Bit about me, eager beaver ready to learn, born in New Orleans, left for Air Force, lived in Illinois for 10 years, and returned home in 2013. Currently knee deep in 10 year plan to own property and turn into a homestead (exploring small business options on property).

With an eager beaver attitude and desire to personally meet like-minded folks, I am seeing historical posts averaging a few times a year on this site but no real traction of consistent local groups connecting in person or via Meetup and Facebook.

Anyone already started a consistent group that I can tag along to or would like some additional help promoting to achieve consistency?

I work full-time at an office but have 4 hours per week available in my schedule to help promote anything you have started or provide an extra set of hands to take care of chores.

Looking forward to hearing from y'all!

Hey there! I’m in Lafayette and as far as I’m aware, there’s a good chance you’ll find folks around here. I know of one small homestead in Scott, LA, but the small farmers markets I’m around Laf are budding with wonderful folks. I hope this finds you well. Take care!
It looks like it's time for me to write you a reality check! Or maybe a tiny ad!
