Hello all you lovely people! My better half and I are looking for an adventure this summer. We are new to the permaculture things but are able bodied, healthy, and eager to learn and meet new friends! We are both vegan, respect our planet and all the earthlings that dwell in! We currently reside in Minnesota and would love to travel out of state or country in the coming months to help on s homestead! Both of us are going back to school on the fall. I (Evan) for horticulture and her (Mercedes) for early childhood development. We are 26 and 24 years old respectively but I say we have "old souls." We do not drink, smoke, do drugs or anything of that sort. We love our senses to much for that! We enjoy hiking, painting, listening to records, living sustainably, and thrift shopping! We would love to come work on your land in exchange for food and shelter! Our dream is to one day own property near a mountain range, living in an earthship, and return the favor! We are excited to meet all you wonderful new friends and look forward to our future travels and adventures! If you have any information on a homestead or farm looking for a couple hard working humans please let us know and we will give many virtual hugs (real ones if we meet in real life!) Thsnk you for reading our post and I hope this day for you has been fantastic! To health and happiness - Evan and Mercedes

Hello! I have a farm in southern Virginia, and have been working to create a community here. Not really looking for temporary people, but if you need a place to stay overnight/for a short while, would be glad to have you visit. Interested in learning and sharing, new ideas and ancient ones. Have horses, a few cattle, 200 acres, poultry, dogs, and a cat. Working towards a well-structured group of people, some of whom will live on-site, with different skillsets--a community of people who support one another and are in turn supported. Not so much focused on the money, but I have lots of land and infrastructure, etc. to share--as long as we are all GIVERS it can work. NO TAKERS WANTED. "The more you Give, the more you Get," my mama always told me. (Actually, she said SHARE.) Anyway, wishing you the best. You look like wonderful people!

You guys look sweet! Envy those vegan donuts.

We have a large vegan garden but not the time or capacity to host WWOOFers. Maybe someday.

In the meantime good luck with your search! If you're looking for farms free from animal captivity, check out http://www.goveganic.net/ for listings of vegan-organic farms across North America.

Thank you for the welcome Laura! We would love to make it out your way some day soon! The history of the Eastern part of the United States alone is appealing to me! If those walls could talk haha!

You sound like a wonderful person as well Krystina! Thank you for the kind words and invite! Virginia sounds like a great place! We were looking at Asheville, NC as a resting place after graduating college. Not to far away! I will be getting my degree in horticulture and throughout that will be honing my building and woodworking crafts! We would love to find something like you have mentioned once we are educated! We are now adopting a minimalistic life style and I agree with your Mama! Donating our unused items to people who can better utilize them feels great! We are now going to have time to volunteer our services to the humane society and habitat for humanity as we have less and can give more! It's exciting to find all these like minded people in one place on the internet. I wish I could me everyone here and give them a hug or high five for being awesome!

If you decide to come out west we could probably host you in northern Utah for a bit. Small 1/2 acre homestead in town, we are just getting started so lots of projects going on all the time to pitch in with. Nice mountain views, easy access to the mountains, spare bedroom, Indian food.

You had me at Indian food Liz! We would love to make it to Utah in the near future and thank you for the offer! The scenery looks fantastic!

You guys could check out Dacres in Dorchester NH.


They offer lots of workshops in sustainable agriculture, forestry, woodworking, herbs, gardening, blacksmithing, Full moon community potlucks and open mic, etc etc. They often take interns for the summer. Lots of very smart fun educated people with philanthropic views...focus on building community.

You will not be bored and will learn a ton.
