Ahoy Permies!

I have been traveling, working, and living on farms all over Western USA and Canada for the past few years feeling out where I want to put down roots.
I've gained a lot of skills, have had some life trajectory altering experiences, but so far nowhere to call home.

It's time for me to settle and watch something grow, and I'm now putting my self out there to the Permies community in (ideally) western Canada
in the hopes for the right opportunity to manifest.

I was most recently living in Montana in ant village at Paul Wheaton's place (my blog of the experience: http://permies.com/t/48167/labs/Life-Ant-Village-POV ),
and it is perfect and wonderful in many ways (such as no flushing toilets) except for that border I had to cross to get there.
It is, much to my regret, not a place I can be at full time any time soon.

I am looking for a farm and homestead that follows or is aspiring to follow, the principles of Permaculture. I am looking to be surrounded by wonderful people, have or have access to a community,
and have frequent opportunities to learn as well as apply my knowledge.

**I have been seeking a Medicine Womban for the past year, and would love to really dive into the world of plant medicine.

I am very open to work in exchange for board, so long as I am able to find soulful paid work elsewhere.


I have my PRI certified PDC. I've watched all of Lawton's videos, went to PV2 and am planning to go to PV3 next year. This doesn't mean much, except that I am totally committed and on board with Permaculture.
I have hugeled, bermed, hugel bermed, swaled, saved seeds, ate weeds, preserved, persevered, shovel and soil, toiling with rocks and clay, wheel barrow, pick axe, and assisted with a few different natural building projects.
All of this means that I have a specific interest in doing much more of all of this. I am not an expert at anything, but willfully learning and seeking to gain more knowledge and wealth.

I was a raw food chef in my past life, and have made a million meals for many mouths in primitive, or rustic, conditions over the last few years using simple ingredients.
Cooking food on a rocket stove is the way to go. I love to cook, and I love to cook for you.

I love children and animals, and they love to play with me too.

I want to live beneath trees, breath fresh air, drink clean water, do hard and satisfy work, have plenty of time to write and create, and develop intimate bonds with people. I want a home.

There is oh so much more to discuss, but perhaps this gives the right person a taste of whether this could go anywhere.
Hit me up on Purple Mooseage!


Truly,

Carol-Anne

have you found any where to go yet? if you are interested, i have 9 acres of started permaculture site here in Alberta you can attack. My health is not what i would like it to be and neither is the farm although i am working my butt off at it. We host woofers here every summer and have campers and a spare room . shelter belts, fruit trees and one swale are in , you would have free reign for your ideas and energies.

Hi Leah, thank you so much for writing.

I have found an opportunity on the BC coast, and I am on my way there in a few days. super excited about this next journey.

I will keep you, and the other people who have reached out, in mind for the coming growing season next year. I do have family just east of Jasper, so Alberta is always a home no matter where I'm roaming.

Blessings to you and your budding farm! Stay warm eh!
