Hello Fellow Permies! It's been a while since I've had something to say but I've been quietly reading on the sidelines. The days lengthen, sun returns, and warmth flirts with the local weather like the pair of cardinals in my pine tree. Once again my heart turns towards community, connection, growth, and forward movement. A few years ago I purchased 10 acres on a south-facing mountainside in Lake Lure, NC (near Asheville). It's gorgeous...utilities are to the property's edge already, perked, natural spring, stream, and with an unparalleled view. Oh how I dream of building there with like-minded people! For the present, I am near Annapolis, Maryland with my nesting partner and our kiddos. I am bisexual and polyamorous, and find myself pining for a partner aligned with my dreams of future homesteading/community. I'm equal parts dirty girl (as in dirt under my nails and bare feet in the garden) meets dirty girl (let your imagination run wild). For now, while still here in Maryland, it would be amazing to find someone who matches that energy, both dirty under the nails and behind closed doors.

We currently live on 1/3 an acre, have a backyard converted to garden space, a chicken coop with egg-layers, and I've just ordered meat chicks for spring. My current project is finishing the shed-to-tiny-home conversion I've been working on for the past couple of years. It's almost complete (just needs plumbing and a few finishing touches)! We have a 20-ft travel trailer on premises with a full kitchen, bath, queen bed, etc. It would be amazing to be able to provide that space to somebody who is aligned with the above thoughts, dreams, and desires. I'm a laid-back Pisces, passionate, always love a project to tackle, and I love to cook for lots of people. Where is my person?

I jest, but from another bi-poly lady looking to build an intentional community, welcome to the group and good luck searching.

Thank you so much! The garden has evolved over the course of 5 years and it expands each year. The book "Food Not Lawns" helped influence that decision! Awww, Thomas, you are but a Spring chicken with a strong back and brilliant mind. You've nothing less than any of the younger guys around here...au contraire, much more life experience!
I hope you find Happiness and Joy as well. Thank you!

Ha! Two birds of a feather flock together. I'm glad to hear there are more of us out there. Please forgive my delayed response; I've had a family member who fell very, very ill this past weekend. It's been one heck of a week! Thank you, and good luck searching as well!

That’s hot. Here in Florida. NC sounds great. You should start with a camp site. Make some money with hip camp
