I'm currently in an intentional living community and I'm looking for a new, more permanent place to settle in. If you'd like to learn a little bit more about my backstory, please view the post linked below:
I am looking for land in the Northern Neck of Virginia. My parents currently live there, and I would like to be near them as they get older, and also near to the Chesapeake Bay and all it has to offer for food, recreation, and transportation. I hope to have a permaculture farm with ecologically grown perennial foods and some forest for agroforestry, hunting, and foraging. I am looking for something with a spring/creek, and at least some elevated acreage over 100-150 feet above current sea level with southern exposure. I would like to open up this property to some people who share my values to forge a small community that is resilient, and has people with different skills and ideas to share.
I will follow the links you posted, but I am very well aligned with what you shared here. I would add to your list my interests:
Appropriate technology for living systems (pumping and purifying water, passive solar design, etc)
Ham radio and other resilient communications
Sailing (I plan to purchase a sailboat and learn)
Community economic systems (share/barter/credit)
Just for starters!
I'm still in control here. LOOK at this tiny ad!
