Hello I just joined today and already I'm stoked about it. Right now I'm just a dreamer, soaking up everything I can about ways to become more independent once I find my plot of land. I'm a single 50 year old female and am ready to take the next move towards this goal. I have a gardening background from my parents and grandparents and fortunately have a green thumb to boot. My current challenges include finding a way to learn how to use power tools safely and how to build simple structures by myself. I'm looking for land in MO because it reminds me a little of beautiful Oregon but I've heard more lenient on zoning, restrictions etc and also much less expensive. I've already read several posts here and learned a couple things that I haven't found on YT. 😁
Hi Darcy; Big Welcome to Permies!
You have come to the right place!
Lots of folks here more than happy to help guide you on your new journey!
I believe we have a fair number of member's who live in MO.
We have a forum for just about anything. My personal favorite is the Rocket Mass Heater Forum.
Come winter in your newly built cabin.... you might want to know something about them...
You already know the forum moderator... Nice guy, he'll be glad to help you learn all about them.
Come back often ... we will leave the light on for you.
Hi Darcy - where in Oregon are you currently living? I live in southern Oregon, the upper Rogue valley. I'm turning 50 this year, and also have a gardening background. It's a great bunch of people here, always willing to share ideas, and give feedback. Welcome.
