Hello everyone! I have been reading through the Forums for a while now, and decided to join. I don't know a lot, and still in the process of learning, but I am deeply interested in learning all I can!

I plan to start a Homestead soon using Cob for my House. I am planning for a minimum 5-10 Acres, Garden/Greenhouse, Chickens, Rabbits, and a Goat, to at least get started. Anything more will come with time.

There's a lot I still don't know, and trying to learn, before I do start on my Homestead project. Hopefully with the help of all of you wonderful people here, I can increase my knowledge base enough to finally be able to see my dream become reality!

Welcome to permies, Avalon.

There are a lot of helpful people here.
They can be even more helpful if you put your location in your profile.
It doesn't need to be an address, or even a city.
Something like "USDA zone 8, SW desert", or "6,000 feet in the Rockies" is enough to help us narrow it down as to what will/won't work for you. It will also act to get growers in your general climate to step in with answers as to what works best in their locale.

Also, have you looked at the regional fora? We have a bunch of them for specific regions.
They are a good place to get region specific answers.
They often also announce regional events, such as seed swaps, workshops, local gatherings, etc.

If you go to Regional forums, and look on the right side of the page, you will see this list (see attachment) plus more. Click on the appropriate forum, and it will take you there.

Unfortunately, I don't really have any information to give for that. I live in the U.S. but I am traveling on the Road currently, and no permanent Address as of yet. I am still looking for a good piece of land to get started on.
