We are passionate about living close to the land and growing our food. We have been growing 90% of what we eat, in a very harsh, marginal environment, high in the Rocky Mtns. and grow enough extra for our 6 Dairy Goats while they, in turn, provide our dairy products and meat. We love to build unique Hobbit type homes, using natural local materials. We also like to make our own medicine and shoes, build our own vehicles, and generate our own power. We have a small steady, life-long income, so we can be at home on the land, without having to work away from the homestead.

We would like to move to a gentler climate, with at least a 120 day growing season, and a property with abundant water in the form of a strong gravity-fed spring or a clean year-round creek or a spring fed pond or artesian well, any of which could be gravity fed to the gardens and homes. We want a good amount of sun, abundant water, privacy and fellow Earth-loving gardeners to share it all with.

We have a lot of experience in finding property all over the U.S. that fits all of the necessary conditions required to create an abundant Eden in which we can not only support ourselves but thrive. We have a steady flow of money to make monthly payments, but not a lump sum saved for a down payment. We would love to share the stewardship/ownership with other folks that want to focus on providing their own needs directly from the Earth.

Is there anyone out there who has access to some secluded land with abundant water, who would like to have some like-minded, like-Hearted people sharing the land, the hard work and the ultimate fulfillment that a regenerative lifestyle has to offer? Another possibility would be some older folks that might want to see their Homestead passed on to someone who would maintain it as a functioning, living example of Nature-based simple living; A living ‘school’, that demonstrates a viable alternative to our current destructive culture through teaching and mentoring the importance of Enhancing the Web of Life.

We prefer to be living in the western states, west of the Rocky Mtns., yet not right on the coast. We love Wild and remote land, not too close to the distractions of a major city. We have many years of homesteading skills and experience, and love to teach and inspire those who yearn to live this lifestyle. We have been caring for other peoples’ properties for many years, and would now like to settle down and create a lush, beautiful Eden and a Space of Love. We have built many homesteads from the bare ground up, planted many orchards and abundant gardens, and have had to move away from them. We would now like to create some long term forest gardens with perennial food sources and thereby root ourselves deeply in one place, sustaining ourselves and others from the fruits of our labor.

If you might have a similar vision, or existing situation, then let’s talk about the possibility of creating a mutually beneficial relationship where we are all enriched by working and living together while making this Earth a better place to call Home. If you are inspired to explore this together, then feel free to contact us at: sunnybabaspirit at yahoo.com

Good luck Baba.

One point that came up in our discussions on this regard, don't forget to mention how much you value sunshine days.
