Hi, I’m Daniel. 50 single. I’ve never been married and have no children to speak of..except my dog. I have in the past raised horses, donkeys, goats, sheep, pigs and many types of fowl. I’m very tall at 6’8” so I usually don’t require a ladder to reach the upper branches of most dwarf fruiting tree species. I own a home and orchards near Asheville NC. Recently I decided to refocus my energies in long term, by growing fruit and nut trees, bushes and shrubs on swales in a permaculture landscape. I’ve planted some 800 plants and trees on swales and much of it is still in it’s infancy. Pretty much everything I’m growing is a superfood/cancer fighting/antioxidant/natural medicines...I still want to add so much more including starting a market garden and that’s already in the works. Without listing everything I own or am growing, I have pretty much most everything I need, except you. I’d really like to have someone to balance out with and grow together in both the Gardens, within and to share in the abundance!

Hi Daniel. My name is Kaiten.  Recently back from a business risk in China and looking for the next place to call home. I'm in Napa, CA right now, by happenstance.  No kids. 5ft 7in height weight porportional. Fairly fit.
Well, shall I start with the urban permaculture things I did in the 'do what you can where you are with what you have right now' vein?  Container gardening and food preservation-canning, drying, fermenting (I'm a fairly good cook), raised and processed chickens and  4 turkeys in my friends backyard, guerilla gardened the ally for looks and community service, took a PDC, learned about the soil food web from Elaine Ingham, went to a rocket mass heater workshop at wheaton labs, took a pork butchering class.....didn't live anywhere  where trees where an option, although I did 'adopt' an apple tree at an orchard turned park one year.

It was satisfying to grow all the tomatoes I would use in the year and most of the eggplant and sweet peppers (I don't like spicy hot food-wasabi and horseradish are ok).
I'm dabbling at learning to make shoes.
Many things I'd like to try but with someone. For instance, making biogas and using it for cooking.
I have used my bike for most of my commuting and errand for about 18 years now-was something I could do after 9/11.  I am soon to get a electric bike I ordered off of indiegogo.   That should be fun.

At first, I liked the idea that permaculture had no religion or politics. But as I discovered solution after solution in the pc world and it's tangents, I think it's only going to be possible to 'save' the world with political changes-as radical as permaculture is from conventional agriculture.  So looking for those who are putting together alternatives to the way we do things so they can be the examples of how to do things differently.

I gave up my naturopathic practice to move to China to be the main practitioner of Advanced BioStructural Correction in Shenzhen. The guy who created the ABC technique live in Harrisburg NC currently. I would like to keep practicing. Are you in/near an area where that seems feasible? It's popular with the Amish, but they are learning to be practitioners like crazy.

What are some influences on the way you live and try to be outside of sustainable agriculture?
I am writing this on a computer in the library so I don't have any photos to send. If you would like to continue talking Perhaps through email or text later.

Well, at least you'll get  one response from your post
Cheers

I’m near Asheville NC . I guess what I meant by sustainable agriculture was growing enough food for ourselves and to put stuff away. I recently purchased a large stainless steel Harvest Right freeze drier. My hopes are to create a niche market in freeze dried superfoods etc. sure I’d like to sell some stuff, hence the market garden spaces I’m creating here beyond my food forest. Please feel free to contact me at mandalaman33@gmail.com
