Hi All;

I'm a newb in terms of permaculture, but I've been wondering something for a while. There's a lot of land up for sale here in MN, they are even selling off parcels in the middle of state parks. Here's some examples that the DNR is offering right now: http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lands_minerals/landsale/index.html.

I would love to buy or go in on buying some land but I don't have the time or skills to take care of it. In addition, I am in the metro area but the best land is usually a ways away - maybe up in the arrowhead for instance. I would love to buy or partner up to buy a piece of land (5-40 acres) and have take care of it, even live on it, doing permacultur-ish things to it (food forest?) just to know that it is out there, and be able to visit it maybe once a year, and have it if I 'need' it for some reason. Receiving any food or other products from the land (black walnuts, apples, etc). to preserve/eat/sell would be a bonus.

Also need advice on how to determine what land would be best to purchase in order to create a sustainable and useful ecology.

Anyone looking for that kind of partnership?

Thanks!

Jody

hi Jody

i'd be very interested in something like this if it were closer (i'm in PA)

as far as land selection, there's a few things i'd look for, and i'm sure others can help you more...

1) fresh water
2) not in a flood zone
3) spaces for gardens, hopefully without chopping the forest down

Frankly, I've been seeing some interesting properties in other states as well. I get notice from the Tiny House Listings at http://tinyhouselistings.com and some of them have quite a bit of acreage that goes along with. For the right partnership I might go in with someone farther away.

Thanks for the advice!~

Jody
