I have truly been considering purchasing some land to build a fully functioning, self sustaining homestead to raise my kids on and protect them from this wicked world. However I am a single working mother of 2 yr old twins and it's almost been impossible to do on my own. I would love to find some like minded people who feel the same that I could partner with to successful build a self sustaining community. As they say "It takes a village!" Right?!
