CRASH STEAD FORMING
We are a group of wide awake, non-Zombies who are developing a retreat...a redoubt...in the Piedmont of Southcentral Virginia. The property is in place. A fairly large, hidden, secluded farm, heavily wooded...near enough to the nice small town of South Boston VIRGINIA.... A small group is forming. We could use a couple more people who have either serious homesteading skills and/or an income of some kind however small have had too many people arriving on gas fumes and not a penny for any personal needs...one or the other please. Beautiful area away from the madding crowd and 3000 feet of elevation. Rustic/Primitive/Off Grid except there is a landline phone and slow dial-up internet and very limited electricity...for Pioneers in the New World Disorder. A Rough and Tumble existence...expect no luxury...not for the weak-willed, weak-minded or weak of body... Family/Couple/Single... Male or Female....Will not tolerate druggies or drama...NO DRAMA MEANS NO DRAMA...this often escapes people's ability to understand...will be vetted so axe-murderers need not apply. Repeat: Must have SOME assets or income and/or some DEMONSTRABLE and USEFUL CRASH STEAD SKILLS like solar power, goat herding, mechanic, carpenter, butcher, welder/blacksmith, gunsmith, earthbag construction,herbalist, cheesemaker, meat rabbitry, poultry experience, hoophouse/greenhouse construction, micro hydropower, GARDENING
...the list goes on. Nice, easy going folks leading this effort but can be tough when needed. Lead family in place. Looking for males/females/couples who Look to the future...we are diligently trying to prepare a Safe Zone...Join Us

I am understanding of problems with dealing with groups of people, I work with em, live with them and vanpool with em. Would't mind talking to you sometime this evening to share some thoughts, thanks spud
Interested to stop by homestead site. Md master gardener with 23' Rv motorhome and own income. Last replies didn't check map to see highest point in Halifax county is well over 4,000 ft. I have other useful skills as well.
Hi! I am interested in such an opportunity. I have my own financial means and my own vehicle and camper. I am drug free, compassionate, a hard worker, and have knowledge of farming, gardening, cob house building, soap and candle making, canning, and many other skills. Email me please if you want to talk further at firstname.lastname@example.org
I live on a working cooperative farm in Virginia that grows and sells seeds for its livelihood. My skill set is construction and repair of buildings & infrastructure, as well as maintenance of farm tractors and implements. Can also operate a field tractor and construction equipment. I also have a full set of tools and a truck.
Got my head screwed on straight and can get along with folks. I am interested in your project for 2016. please contact me @ email@example.com.
Adam, Gardner, ME TOO. As in I also have a wonderful farm and would like to have people to nurture it. Oh my, how difficult it is to find people as you describe!!! I have 200 acres and just want some nice, gentle, reasonably capable human being(s) to live here so they can help with chores. Or even have a full-time, multi-employee business built up! Or have a large community built up over time! But I have not yet had success with the people who have lived here--I have a nice house sitting empty. More success with people who have worked or participated only. Since we are so close, several of us trying to do the same thing on Permies, it would be great if we could circulate (with permission) the names of people who may be better suited for someone else... or even talk sometime.
