Greetings Permies! I am brand new to this community, but have all of the hope in the world that my efforts will be fruitful. I am not (necessarily) searching for a home/land sharing experience at this time. I am however searching for a tribe. I had been part of a beautiful community in a not too distant past life. We shared a home, and a farm- however, in an effort to remain somewhat transparent I will say that circumstances took a turn for the worst and there had been a falling out. While we are amicable, things will never be the same.

I miss having people of a like mind right here next to me. I now find myself lonely in life, as I do not have those people to share...well...anything with. I am happily partnered, and have two beautiful children, however the hustle and bustle of every day life, school, work, etc. has me wishing for a slower pace in life and others to share it with.

A little about us. I am 30, and my partner is 32, our children are 3 and 7 years old. We have three cats, and one sweet, floppy eared, big, black dog. Our family currently lives in downtown Ann Arbor, Michigan. We love all things permaculture, although are not able to act upon this love as we are currently in a more urban setting than we really desire. We have a lovely back yard where we are starting a garden, and have a couple of other community garden plots in the city. Our ideal, however, would be several acres of food forest and all sorts of animals. We love the outdoors, and everything it has to offer. We dream to one day hike through The North Country, Appalachians, and the Pacific Crest.

As I said before, we are searching for a tribe, some people who share the same ideals, who want to hang out by the fire, sing music, play in the dirt, play games, cook food, explore the outdoors. I am hoping I have come to the right place!

Ann Arbor is Gorgeous! I just went to see my brother graduate from dentistry school there and I am VERY impressed.
I live in Cleveland (suburb Cleveland Heights) and would love like-minded neighbors. I day dream about it being an urban (or suburban) sustainable paradise. But, looks like you are looking more for ACRES. The plot size here is 0.25 acres or less....unless you are next to a vacant lot where a house was probably torn down. Prices usually run from $50-$150K for a 80 year old home. Good luck!
