Here for a 2nd time. Have met some great folks on Permies and it's much better than Craigslist, where people wanna fake like they're into what I'm into psssh.
I have a baby boy and am currently in Maryland near our family.
I spent some time in Tennessee last year and miss it. Also missing Costa Rica, and hoping to see Sweden one day.
Would love to connect with fellow:
mommas and poppas,
It's not an exclusive list so reach out if you think we share some ideals. Let's build stuff!
P.S. Just recently cut my hair

There have been many wonderful people interested in my 200 acre farm, and hopefully it will become an even more sustainable place very soon. New people will bring great things to this farm, and all will thrive. I have been blessed to start a lot of great Permies connections, and plan to set up the ability for people to come visit us and stay in the near future!! A guy from Ohio and a couple from Illinois with a toddler are coming in the next two weeks to stay--the house has two bedrooms (3 soon.) Hopefully, we shall have more room soon, the other (vacant) house will be fixed up in better shape... It will be great to have you come out after a little while, when they are settled down a bit. I went to the Intentional Communities in the Louisa, VA area, and they are wonderful places--you should check them out. Such great people, and that is kind of what we are trying to do here. We should keep in touch! My 200 acres is getting an infusion of intellect and ability, and we will be we/lcoming visitors and friends as they come this way.... hope to see you as you journey!!!
Thanks for the reply, Krystina.
My thread was pending when you reached out so this should be the one I was referencing:
I hope you enjoy your time with that family!
I think we talked a couple of years ago but I didn't have land yet at the time. I just got a few acres by Snowflake AZ and am looking for someone cool to share it with, hopefully a few people eventually. It's got an underground house on it and I also have a vintage bus and 26 foot rv that could be liveable with a little elbow grease. I'm just getting going so I'll be roughing it out there for the next few months while I get things set up.
We have very similar interests but I prefer to adapt to Nature than attempt to adapt Nature to me. This means a stewarding the growth of wild edibles rather than gardening. I generally think that domestication of anything is the start to tyranny so I'd rather forage and make use of civ's waste stream than further harm Nature by farming.
I'm anticapitalist and rarely even use money but am well fed and healthy, thriving in gift economy and resourceful scavenging.
I wouldn't ask anything of you other than that you be nice to me and Nature and leave gracefully if you can't.
3 months might be a little young, in some people's eyes at least, for full off grid but that's totally up to you. I love kids and would love to have a little tribe running around someday.
My site, that I've kinda given up on due to lack of interest from internet folk, is Prototribal.org I'd really like to get the projects going again but getting set up is the priority over outreach for now. Once the core projects are done, I'd like to tour around a bit and spread the ideas in person.
Anyway, I thought I'd throw it out there as an option. Whatever happens, I hope you find the perfect place!
I'm a 26 year old mom to a two year old little boy, living in central Montana. No longer a nomad, I've found my home, but I do love to travel. If you ever want to connect, feel free to reach out, I'm on that dreadful social media thing.
Don't know what your current plans are and, Heavens knows, mine are still forming, but from your description, I think we might be resources for one another. I'm in Northern Alabama and I have a sister in Maryland near Baltimore and DC. I visit her a couple of times a year.
I'm a writer just beginning permaculture work on a place I acquired 2 1/2 years ago. Though I am grandmother age, I am currently working on becoming a foster mom. The need to mother leads me to fostering, but I have to admit I am also conscious of opportunity to teach and spread permaculture principles as I share myself.
So I have an interest in connecting with permaculture families. I'm interested in techniques for inculcating permaculture principles with young people who often have had full, very different, lives before meeting me and will most likely return to those lives. Other than naturally sharing my interests, don't know how to go about that, but permaculture families seem a good starting place.
