Looking for a person or couple w/ or w/o kids to join our early stages homestead. We are in our 30's with 2 kids, we have 20 acres. Projects are slower moving then we would like, and would love to have somebody join us in our goal of off grid sustainability. we do all organic, no chemicals, try to stay away from EMF, we plan to homeschool, we are not vegan, we have animals, but have been leaning more towards vegetarian. we are preparing to be totally reliant on our homestead. if you have a kid/kids my idea was to swap the kids back and forth possibly after getting to know one another so each of us could get some things done and the kids have plenty of play dates. we need help with planting, digging ponds/swales, greenhouse work, fencing and shelters for animals, and more in the future, there will never be a time where there isn't something to do. we want to grow a bond with a few people or couples, goal being helping eachother with all the responsibilities and projects of self sustainability and get through any tough times ahead. we have no connected grid electric, some solar, no water besides the rain. we started a small pond, and plan to do lots more. plans to do a permanent earth sheltered home and barn and greenhouse. there is multiple wet weather creeks, and a possibly spring (we are trying to get/find more water) we have started a permaculture orchard recently. we have been antisocial, not going out to many places, we have just been here getting things done, but we are very much craving community and feel it's important to have more people on board, it will be easier on everybody, and i think becoming close to other people is important for the soul. we are very spiritual people, we are not Christians but know a lot of the history. we strive for positivity, peace, happiness, and hope to ascend out of this matrix someday!

Hello!! My husband and I are in our mid and late 20’s with a 2 year old. We live in south Oklahoma and have been dying to start a homesteading life. The community down here is not like minded at all    as far as eco living and a more organic/vegan/vegetarian lifestyle. We would love to sell off everything and completely uproot our lives and start over and raise our baby girl in a more simple, yet rewarding life. We have a good bit of knowledge on general homesteading topics from diligent research, but we don’t have a ton of actual experience in the field. But we want to learn so much and work very hard to get to that life. I have a bachelors in business, and my husband is about to complete CDL school, so we can pull our weight financially if we need to in order to get going. We are very interested in getting to know more about your family and what y’all are working to accomplish. If you would like, our email is    thelamberts1112@gmail.com. Thank you!

Hey I'm 29 years old, vegan, and my dreams been to live away from pollution, take care of nature, grow healthy organic plants, build buildings, with nice people who enjoy the same. I backpacked across America and tried 2 other communities and they weren't for me. I left my home city after learning about pollution and wanting better air quality. Missouri is where I'd prefer, so I could see my family sometimes, who live near St.louis. I'm a really respectful person, introverted sometimes. I'd like to join kind people who I'm comfortable with and consider friends, not someone who gets angry and expects me to work 40+ hours per week. Hope that doesn't sound like I'm lazy, I will work a lot. The location matters to me though, don't want to be near a busy highway or city

Hi there!

My kiddos and I are looking at 2 homesteads right now as well and want to be integral co-creators of a vision like yours. We already homeschool and have stayed at a couple of homesteads in the past, though briefly, as we traveled.

It would be nice to speak more about shared goals and see if we mesh at other levels as families as well.

Blessings,

Sage
