So I joined the forum and directly got excited and started posting but totally forgot to say hello

So hello I am an intressed Dutch guy that is in the planning and designing stage of permaculture.

Together with my partner we are now setting up a small eatable garden in the urban area we live in.
And for now we are looking into the building properties of building with terrepaille and cob. To determine the strength and possibilities.

We are also investigating climates in France to determine where we want to settle down and what the conditions are

Hi Lloyd. So you are now living in the Netherlands, but you want to move to France. I understand.
Owning a piece of land, building your own house, things like that are not really possible here. Most people who dream of a self-sustaining life move to France, Portugal, Hungary, a.a.
The Permies forums will surely give you the needed advice.

I am dutch origin yes and still officially life there but am already moving into frans (moving in with my partner)
We just started our edible garden there.
And are now dissecting the legislation around building a house (what is needed and what not)

Our plan is first the garden (this summer)
Join a workshop with terrepaille and cob (hopefully this summer)
Finish the list with our priorities and decide on a place to settle and hope to start building our own place in 2 or 3 years

Lloyd, I just happened to see a video of someone who did the same as you. A Dutchman living in France now, having a small market garden.
