I'm in/from Houston. I'm working my way out of the city though. I see myself starting a homesteading project in the next 5 years, at least 5-10 acres.
I've been practicing Permaculture for a few years now. I've been gardening and learning about nature for longer.
I have a BS in Horticulture and a Masters of Landscape Architecture. I educate and landscape and work with bees for a living, and then I practice Permaculture for fun.
I've been feeling this rush of excitement for the future. I have a lot in the city that I have been gardening on for the last few years. Getting a lot of practice with dryland farming. It is finally taking shape(Things are getting established and I'm out of space for large fruittrees) so I'm seeing the need/opportunity to shift toward my next project.
I definitely have 2-3 years I need to save first to try anything on my own, but that just means more options and opportunity for unfoldment. I'm considering around Houston(NW/Hempstead), North Carolina near Greensboro or Asheville, or also in Arkansas near Fayetteville.(I have family/friend support in those places) I have a bit of travel left in me and a reasonably flexible work schedule. Right now I am in North Carolina working for the summer.
So if you are interested in connecting and you think our life paths might be heading in the same direction then I'd love to hear from you.
