Hey there.... Family of 3 living on a huge lot of land in a super great school district.... starting small and someday hope to live the simple life. looking for a couple or a small family to share land and house. Im a straight shooter with a huge passion for gardening, music, family, and living off the land. my wife is a child interventionist, super smart and loves kids, and is becoming a great cook. My 7 year old girl, is the toughest cookie but still sweet as sugar. looking for someone who would work together to pay bills and work the land and develop and small working community of like minded people. no free loaders, we have heard a million times, people saying I can do this or that... but it seems that most people just Want something but never really prove them self worthy. It sounds harsh, but this BS life we live, is harsh. we have to work together. our houses have four bed rooms and three bathrooms and a whole lot of extra space over 3000 sqf its in the woods but close to town and major city, plenty of work. lots of privacy. we enjoy a good party but not every night. Im not in a race so when the right person or people are on board ill remove this post. Or if you just wanna hang out that's cool to, none of our curant freinds understand me when i talk about rocket mass heaters or methane gas digester they just say your a new age hippy. Well I say pass the fatty and lets get to work

Hi Nick and S Bengi!

I know this post is a few years old, but I thought I'd reply and say hi! My husband and I also live in Massachusetts (30 min south of Boston) and we love nerding out on all things gardening, permaculture,sustainability, etc. etc. We have been overhauling our backyard for the past three years and are focusing our efforts on our front yard this season. We're happy to be putting in fruit trees, berries, grapes, passionflower, and lots of other goodies. Additionally, this is our first season with chickens!

Hope all is well! Best of luck with your food growing adventures.
