Greetings!  My partner and I live on one acre in Upstate NY.  We are a small off-grid homestead with cats and chickens.  We are hoping to add goats (a dairy goat and a wether fiber goat) in the future.  We are a queer female couple. My partner, M, is a seamstress by trade, and a Jill-of-All-Trades in practice.  She has skills in carpentry, natural building, handywoman work (basic plumbing, basic electrical), home dec, costume making, crocheting, re-purposing and upcycling, small appliance repair, etc.  She is the more exuberant of the two of us, and she offers nurturing and honest communication.  I am a writer and a thinker, neurodiverse, an introvert who is interested in permaculture, coding, literature, and living in concert with the Earth.  We are building 4 4x4 hugelkulture beds in soil bags for planting, as well as a ground garden bed for corns, beans and squash.  We plan to grow winecap mushrooms beneath our squash plants.  M attended Pacific University and Grossmont College, majoring in Leadership for Sustainable Communities at Pacific, and I had a short stint at Empire State College here in Upstate NY.  I am Korean, M is Scottish.  We are looking for friends and potentially, someone to help us with projects while living on the land.  We have a 28 foot RV that isn't currently occupied, and, once tidied and hooked up to solar (we have panels), could be lived in.  We are both nerds who love to sing and play.  We spent a lot of time on our computers this past winter, along with hauling wood and tending to the critters, and it'd be good to get into the sunshine with likeminded folks and light a fire in the fire circle.  We are open-minded, tolerant, kind, and compassionate people.  We seek the same.  We are spiritual rather than religious and we don't drink or use any drugs.  I vape.  Our lives have taken us in diverse directions and we find safety and home in one another and in relationship with Nature.  We have both walked complicated paths and it's helped us to appreciate weirdness and differences in people.  Don't be afraid, shoot me a purple moosage or reply to this post if you'd like to talk.  COVID hasn't affected us all that much as we're both somewhat hermit-y, and ushering in new perspectives and thoughts will bring an influx of light into our springtime revelries!  Be well!

Oh?  We're about 45 minutes north of Albany.  Maybe we could meet up or talk on the phone?  We are building hugelkulture beds this spring and just added 4 Lavender Orpington hens to our flock.  We are getting 12 fruit trees in May for planting.  My partner is knowledgeable about permaculture and I'm learning.  It would be great to meet people locally.  Please send me a message if you're interested!

I am not really connected with anyone here on this forum site though I am moving, with effort, to an offgrid permie lifestyle from my undesired urban background. I am not really moving around geographically, but if online friendship with communication is desired for that, I would be willing to make friends. And I imagine I can have a lot to learn from that. My pursuit is for sustainable living that I see is really very needed from people in this world.

Hello, I posted this in a few forums but I would love for you to contact us, if this opportunity is available I think we would be a great fit! Your post resonates with us, especially because we are also hermits who stick with each other, our dog, and the land! We just got back to Florida after traveling for a few months and ready to stay in one spot and begin to learn the skills we need to have our own homestead one day. We are both artistic and spiritual people and we would love to talk with you about Anthony’s recent spiritual awakening. We are really looking forward to meeting people that can offer us knowledge, skills, and life guidance that we did not have family to pass on to us.

Beginner couple looking for a mentor and labor needed to barter for land.

We are a 22 and 25 year old couple (Anthony & Michayla) who is looking for land to live on in exchange for labor around the property, or any other work you may have for us. Anthony (25) has experience in pest control & some handy-man skills, but other than that we only have blue collar experience. We are hoping that through mentorship we can gain knowledge and eventually take on more responsibilities in exchange for a place on your property to build a tiny home or if not possible, just park a camper van. We are hoping that through this symbiotic relationship we can gain the hands on experience to begin our own homestead one day. We are quiet, humble, artistic, free minded people with a sweet dog named Harper, who has more farm experience than we do (:

We look forward to connecting with all! We are new to this website and still getting used to the platform so please reply by email so I can make sure we get in touch! Mndeane1@gmail.com
