Hey there, my name is Ross, and I bought 9 acres in Florida a year and a half ago. I dug a pond and have planted over 100 trees, put up a small cabin, installed a hand pump well, put in a driveway and parking pad, and have started to establish a nice garden. I'm still beginning but I do intend to make this place more comfortable as the years go on.
My dream is for this place to be food independent, and teach yoga and permaculture classes, as well as host campers and a few other long term residents. I would hope to one day have my future kids and grandkids all living out here with me. I also have put a strong focus on planting native species that provide food and shelter to native insects and wildlife.
I have one local restaurant lined up that I know I can sell to, and a few other produce stands, and the opportunity to sell to neighbors is there as well.
As far as myself and a relationship goes, I value honesty, dedication, good communication, and loyalty. I like animals, yoga, and spending time in nature, but enjoy socializing as well. I'm a vegetarian but will consider eating animals if it makes me fully food independent. You're dietary choices are not a deal breaker. I think I'm pretty easy going, once you get past the pioneer life in the woods haha.
There's plenty of room for you to work on your own projects and designs out here, as well as work and grow with me.
