I posted this in the Volunteer/Intern section, but realized that I should have probably posted it here (maybe) I'm not sure the proper placement for this. I figured since I am new I should introduce myself.

Hello there! My name is Chris, I am an aspiring Permaculturist/Homesteader. I currently live in California and am interested in apprenticing or practicing the things I have learned over the past couple of months. My wife and I have an online business so are able to uproot and move wherever is necessary. Because of the fact that I don't have any first hand experience with this sort of lifestyle we have put off from purchasing land. My goal is to get some experience under my belt first. I am open to internship/apprenticing, care taking or even partnering with someone who currently has some property where I can practice the magic of what mother nature has to offer.

We are city slickers, I won't lie. We are both 25 and both could not quite conform to the modern schooling system. I am a blunt no nonsense kind of guy who has an insatiable appetite for learning. I will ask a million questions if I don't understand something. I will offer my advice if I think I can improve on something, but respect the fact that whomever is "mentoring" does have more experience.

I'm looking for someone to take a chance on a guy and his wife that wish to make this world a better place for generations to come. If you have any ideas or know someone who would be interested in such an undertaking please feel free to call me at (916) 606-0691

Thank you for reading!
Best Wishes
-Chris & Amy (and Bambi our 5 year old poodle mix)

Thank you for the link I will definitely check it out. I came from the Homesteading forums and have not had time to read each sub-section.

Thanks again!
