Hello to the people who see this through synchronicity,

My husband and I own land in the middle of the Daniel Boone National Forest in south eastern Kentucky. The nearest landmark is Cumberland Falls State Resort Park. We do not have neighbors for miles in all directions. We live completely off grid with solar power, a wood stove, rain water collection, and a compost toilet. Our garden is currently about a quarter acer, we have chickens and we forage for food in our woods. We produce about half of what we consume but the goal is to get to 100 percent. We have been here for 3 years and we have fallen in love with the land and forest. However, one thing is missing. Community. If you are interested to meet us and our land please reach out. We are open hearted and welcoming to all that desire to live in harmony with the land and one another. We have spots for you to bring a  camper or tiny house if you have one until a more permanent building is established. Kids are welcome! We are currently expecting our first little one to arrive in October.

Best,
Olivia and Austin

Hey Olivia and Austin,

I'm bikebackpacking through the states right now, looking for a friendly destination out there. Synchronicity maybe?

How's the temperature over there? What kind of plants do you grow? What kind of help do you need? I've been studying permaculturish things for years, but I've never found a place where I can put them into practice. There's so much to do. It would be brilliant to finally have an opportunity at experiencing it all; like hugelkulturs, cobb-building, fermentation, soil layering, harnessing solar energy-- all of the usual gist, and any other new and unknown things-- whatever help is needed.

I'd be willing to work hard to be immersed in a place where that kind of stuff is going down. Could stay in my tent. The lifestyle of wandering gets super lonely, so the company of others would be super lovely. I'd hope to become good friends.

Anyways, let's reach that 100%?

I'm also very new to permaculture, but I'm trying to educate myself. I actually just started the SKIP/PEP program. I live in Washington, so I can't pick up & move immediately. Mostly I'm just putting out feelers for potential (hopefully soon) future outcomes. I'd love to hear/see more. It is my great desire to live more harmoniously with/connected to the land & life around me.

I am rather poor meaning there is not lots of money for me to spend, but I am very interested in this, living offgrid with using what is available from the natural environment, in simplicity with sustainability in living, and growing things for what is needed with some foraging, and planting back, not taking more than is needed. I need someplace to actually live like this, and have studied for ways to do this.
