My wife and I live in mid coast Maine on a 17 acre solar powered permaculture homestead with 3 living structures. Been here for 30 years and had various people living here over the years. We have quite a few fruit and nut trees, nut tree nursery, other permaculture and a big garden space as well.  We are looking for a someone who is interested in becoming part of our community for the long term as we enter our last quarter of life. Buying into the community and owning one of the houses and some of the land is possible or if you have other resources to share like labor or tools, etc. we would like to have a conversation with you.  A strong work ethic and a strong interest in working the land for the long term are the most important qualities needed for anyone considering responding to this query.  We wear many hats here, massage therapist, musician, permaculture enthusiast, gardener, educator, carpenter, plumber, electrician, woodlot management specialist, mycologist and other labels are how we partially identify ourselves.  If this appeals to you and would be passionate about living this lifestyle in mid coast Maine, then we would encourage you to contact us.  Be well, do good work and find joy in each day.  freetomme@yahoo.com

With the corona virus keeping us put most of the time, I have spent that last few weeks doing firewood and posting my music on you tube and facebook.  With rain today I have been making grain spawn for mushroom culture.  Seedlings get some attention every day and I take my dog for a walk.  We'd like to hear how you are all coping with restricted schedules!  Stay connected!

Hi Tom!

Where on Midcoast are you located? I just moved back to Maine (Portland) in March and want to get involved with a permaculture farm/homestead or even start my own! I went to UMaine Orono from 2012-2016 and have a BS in Civil Engineering, with minors in Sustainable Agriculture and Mathematics. After graduating, I took an internship with Eliot Coleman in Harborside, ME. Ever since, I have worked on a variety of farms, and as a permaculture/edible landscaper. I’ve worked in construction as well and I’m a very fast learner. I’m super interested in what you have going on and maybe we could chat about possibilities of me helping you out? Please reach back out if you want to talk more. My email is lnmrphy@gmail.com
