My Fiance and I are looking to go off the grid and live a sustainable lifestyle. We are both college students studying Microbiology and Chemical Engineering. The problem is our wonderful public schooling system has prepared us for a consumer based life We are very interested in cob construction, biomass heating, rocket stoves, organic gardening and farming. If anybody has a project of some sort and might need a hand please, let us know we will work for cheap and are fast learners. We live in Bozeman Montana and would prefer something relatively close to Bozeman. We are eager to learn about permaculture from something other the books, we do that all year long and we need some sunshine! Thank you for taking the time to read our post and we look forward to helping you with your next project.

Hi N and J,

We've got a collective community gardening project in Bozeman with about 10 active individuals (families and elders).  We're hoping to grow, as we are planning to produce a lot of food this year!  We had excess last year, so we're looking for more members.  This is located on 3/4 acre near Sourdough creek on the south side of town, with non-chlorinated water source.  There is some experimentation going on with different techniques (hugelkultur, fruit tree polycultures, homemade EM and bokashi composting), with the potential to develop an aquaculture system (multiple connected ponds on site) and various mycology projects.

Email me if you are interested!

See ya later boys, I think I'm in love. Oh wait, she's just a tiny ad:
