Help me start a forest farmstead/mini ecovillage. We'll grow mushrooms, elderberries, bramble berries, herbs, and everything else! Livestock will be limited to bees, and ducks (not for meat), since there are already so many animals in the existing forest. Let's build tiny, rocket mass heated natural dwellings. Let's thin unhealthy forest, and practice mycofiltration, restoration, remediation. Make maple syrup, hugel beds, build natural pools, and heat water with compost piles. We'll teach classes and workshops, feed people, make music. We will compost everything. Zone 5a, over 41" annual rainfall, 15ish acres of forest. One hour from Portland.
I'll be happy to go into further details if you want to PM me, and are serious rather than curious. Thanks!

Hey Jessie! I PM'd you! I'm in northern Maine currently and looking to do something very similar once my credit is good enough for a loan.
