Hi all,

I registered on this forum not so long ago, but I am into permaculture for a while now. I would love to start a community (or join an existing one), probably in the south of Europe. And I really would like to do that with a girl who shares some of my ideas and worldview.

Now I still live in the city (near Amsterdam), and somehow I don't meet the right people here. Most people I meet seem to be happy with the status quo, I feel the need of change. I would like to start a permaculture project, best would be to do that with a partner, ideally within a group of likeminded people. I want to be more connected with nature. More sustainable, selfdependent, producing less waste, and find ways to re-use that waste. Stop wasting my time to work for a boss, but start to create something of my own. I think it must be possible to make a living like this, especially if we manage to add value, so instead of selling grapes, selling wine, or olive oil. I can keep on, but I guess we on this forum have all more or less the same ideas.

I saved a bit, so I am able to purchase a (small) plot somewhere in the south of Europe. Maybe I should buy something today, and get started. But I know I dont have all knowledge and skills to start such a project on my own. So my plan for the near future is to visit some existing ecovillages or permaculture projects, and be volunteer for a while. I guess that will help to get more selfconfident to get something started.

So are there any single girls (20-35) here who have similar plans, let me know!

Andreas

Hi Andreas,

I'd love to chat with you more. Here's my email address grassherbsandfruit@gmail.com
I'm in the planning stages of a self reliant farm as a living/working training ground to share a more natural
Way of living with others, as well as a healthy homestead for my family. (I'm a single mother)
I'm not quite sure if I'm the type of "girl" you're looking for, but I'd def. love to connect none the less.
<3
