My name is Chris. I’m 30 yrs old and I’m interested in finding somewhere to learn/practice permaculture with the possibility of being involved longer term. I’ve moved around a lot in my adult life living in Hawaii, Chicago, South

Korea and Australia. The biggest sacrifice to traveling how I have has been the no long-term home. I am

looking eventually to have a home base, somewhere that I can be involved in growing food, and helping

to be a productive member of a community possibly. I have some savings that I'd be able to contribute if the right situation arose, and I'd be interested in purchasing a plot of land. I’m interested in somewhere with good a balance of work and enjoyment,

where I can be around like-minded individuals. I’m very easy going, and easy to get along with. I’m easy.

I’ve been traveling around the US since March in a camper van, and now I’m looking for somewhere

to park, learn by helping out, and see what’s available, and what would be a good fit. I’m interested in

permaculture and aquaponics, but I only have limited hands on experience. I’m an experiential learner,

so I’m always happy to do/learn new things. I don’t have any strict religious views, and I eat some meat.

I’m very open minded however and am interested in experimenting with different lifestyles. I have a

degree in finance and to fund my travels, I’ve been a special-ed and English teacher, and have worked

in insurance. I’m looking to go a different direction in my life and am looking to basically start over,

learning and living by doing things that actually matter to me, instead of being a hamster on a wheel

again. I'm in southern California at the moment, looking to stay in a tolerable climate for the winter unless accommodation would be provided. Please let me know if you know of a good fit. Thanks for reading.

Chris
I have a nice farm in Santa Barbara. Lots of great permaculture projects And I do a lot of beekeeping jobs. Let me know if you'd like to come out for a week to do a trial and we'll see where it goes from there.

If by chance you're still looking for something in the spring let me know. I'm likely going to be looking for somebody to assist in getting my place to the next level. I've done quite well to put a lot of food on my table and in storage for winter but I'll be trying to expand myself into more projects and hope to begin selling some food for income next year. Somebody who's versed in finance would be a great help in that endeavor. Especially somebody willing to work and learn. I'd probably work it out so that it was profit share type of thing. Once our bellies, pantries and freezers are full, sell the rest and split the profit. Your share would be determined by your effort. and mine.

Just throwing that out there. I'll be delving deeper into this over the winter as I figure out the details but if you're interested... keep it in mind. I suspect that by February or March I'll be taking "applications/resumes". Work usually begins with the spring MUD SEASON. How do you feel about black flies?
