Is there someone who would gladly settle for a somewhat similar set up here in a small town in west central Missouri? This old gray mare ain't what she used to be and I need help to finish getting an edible yard. I have one sort of finished hugel bed and some others started and lots more planting to do. I have three lots and an old garage besides my house. An ant could fix up a cozy living space in the garage well before winter.She could have small livestock [like chickens in a tractor] and raise lots more food than I usually do. I don't have money to hire any one nor do I want to give up my permies type dream. I have lots more knowledge than energy so it could be good for both of us. If you are interested, please send me a PM. Thanks.

I've been thinking about all I didn't say in my post yesterday. Really, this situation would be far different because I am in a town. The basic idea of letting someone practice polyculture,and homesteading skills with out actually buying land is about where the similarity ends. This would be sort of a half=way experience between typical city living and homesteading raw land. My third of an acre gives enough room for lots of learning experiences for a newbie, probably not for any with lots of skills. During my daily puttering sessions outside , the newbie could learn how and why to do whatever i am doing. Living conditions could be off or on the grid, depending on skills. Your own growing space would be as agreed upon , to be used as you see fit. So ,if you are a wannabe newbie,and would like to explore details, here is my e-mail address> grannybrown@klmtel.net.
