Yep, the title said it all. I am looking to be moving to WA state in a few years(hopefully within 2) and I want to buy a tract of land 5-10 acres(more the better in my opinion) and I've looked around online and everything I've read seems to be really sketchy info or just not much whatsoever. What I'm wanting to know is the real nitty gritty of homesteading in the state(which means any issues wherever they maybe), could someone help me out with this? Any info would help. Thanks
P.S. I'm looking around at several places around the entire state

We do more than give information, we try to teach how to solve the problems of Homesteading.
Our mission is to develop and improve Sustainable Living Process & Products in the areas of: Energy, Water, and Food. Most of our designs are for people living in urban areas. But regardless of where a person lives they will be able to use our designs. They can live on a farm, have a homestead, be on a ranch, in the suburbs, in an apartment, or be in a condo.
We own the End of the Road Ranch. It is a Sustainable 80 acres learning and living laboratory.
The Ranch is 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean in Oregon. The ranch is surrounded by 20,000+ acres of logging forestland. It is a land locked island of 80 level acres surrounded on two sides by a wild salmon, trout, and steelhead river.
The Ranch is a Sustainable Community. It is NOT a commune, political, environmental, religious, or militia community.
Every member of the Ranch Community is committed to increase their Sustainable Knowledge and to teach at the Sustainable Living Centers.
We own two (2) Centers; These Centers are not located at the Ranch. Both Centers are on Hwy 101 (Pacific Coast Hwy) near Lincoln City, Oregon 97367. It is where we hold workshops for the public. We do not hold workshops at the Ranch.
Workshops\sessions are weekly with three (3) hours of supervised hands on (doing) sessions and one (1) hour of classroom.
All the material and tools are furnished.
Each session is one of kind session, not a canned repeating workshop. The sessions are open to the public by reservation and a cost of $25 per session.
The subjects and times change with the seasons. If interested, email for times and subjects that will be covered.

How to support yourself while you are living on your own Homestead

It is way to provide income while living Sustainable.
