Group of people looking for others to possibly form a planned community. We are 3 families that have already begun planning for this ourselves, we practice organics, permaculture and homesteading now on 13 acres and an urban csa farm of .5 acres. We are true conservatives that use natural medicine only and practice trade and barter. We have a really good start on what we need, most of the animals and equip. We are looking for people who are wanting to live "off grid", if your interested what do you have to bring to the table? We are located in mid Missouri

Hi I have been searching for a community to join for a while. What sort of housing do you have? Are you open to cob building or earthbag building? What I have to offer is a deep understanding of many spiritual principles including the law of attraction which is always in effect.

More tangibly speaking, I am in good shape and will work very hard for your community if I were to be accepted. I also have a good understanding of herbology and making tinctures, elixirs, and medicinal extracts. I have excellent credit and a great resume as well which would make it easy for me to find a local part time job to help raise money for your community. I am also skilled in website building, marketing, social networking, SEO (search engine optimization) which may be of use if you plan on working on a website.

However, I am wanting to leave the city and would be happy not putting any of those computer skills to use ever again, lol  My dream is definately to join a holistic community which yours seems to be based on your message. How can I get in further touch with you?

I am learning a lot about cob building and I will have $5000 by february which could assist in building many homes for your community, cob ovens, cob saunas, cob hot tubs, and much more. I have a few connections and it will not be difficult to attract volunteers to this cause to assist in the building processes. My email is kylejamesp81@yahoo.com

Where are you located?  I have ten acres near Stockton Lake myself.  I am transforming five of the ten into a Permie Food Forest using Farmer Trees/swale and berm/hugulkultur design modalities.  I am also a Naturopathic Doctor and Native American Practitioner.

One of my favorite projects is Mobile Home recycling.  I take off the siding and glass insulation, build a foundation, and retrofit the walls with light straw/clay in the studwall, and earthblock on the outside as a skin.  I love the look and utility of earthen plasters and use them inside and out.  The result is perhaps the ultimate in recycling.

I don't want to come live in your community, but would love to affiliate, as it looks like we may be neighbors.  I want to associate with all my neighbors who share interests like those you express.

I just joined this forum.  My husband and I also live in Missouri, the Ozarks.  We grow organically and have just started over with this homestead.  Our no-till beds are in place and we are living off grid here now while we build an earth sheltered house. 

I'm an herbalist and have begun planting native medicinals in the woods and am planning a food forest.  I don't want to thread drift, but we are working on the same thing. 

Glad I joined this forum, seems like we'll meet some like minded people.

Hi!  First post here but not the first to a chat board.  We are the place in Bend Oregon that Kyle posted about earlier on.  We have a lot of exciting things happening here at the CPC and look forward to speaking with new cobbers as well as experienced ones for this project.  This is a brand new operation and we are looking for the right person that could eventually fit in as a supervisor capacity.  We looking to find someone that would be a good fit for the way we see this project going.  I will try to pop back in here in a few days to see if anyone has responded.  Peace    Ruth
