Hi!  My name is Danny.  I am 24 years old and in very good mental and physical shape.  My intent for making this post is to reach out to a group or team that can utilize my talents.  Although I am not the best writer,  I hope my message is clearly received.

A little about myself.
My first garden was a five by five section of the main garden.  I was successful at growing some tomatoes at four years old.  Plants have always been at my core.  Although I only became serious grower when I turned 18.  I have almost two years experience working and living on farms.  Including three months on a budding eco village.  My main focus is to learn.  It tickles me to gain knowledge.  I would say my strongest asset is problem solving.  This makes me an excellent farm hand,  so I've been told.  My weakest point is I can become restless if I am not tasked, and this has caused issues when down time is occurring. Some have said I am not a team player,  I am working to adjust these weaknesses.  I'm just a go getter and may go to fast for some.  Living life fascinates me and I am very grateful to be alive. 

My intentions. 
I wish to find strangers that I can grow and learn with.  Eventually calling these strangers family.  I wish to join a person or team that is living the lifestyle that this site depicts.  Whether it be a functioning system,  or one that needs some tender loving care.  I wish to be calm and work together.

My possible contributions.
Learning is very important to me.  This has granted me a wide knowledge base.  Having me on board is having a go to person when a project or problem arises.  I give valuable perspective, and if I dont, I work to better the situation no matter what.  Even if it's a hug or a smile.  My biggest contribution would come in my physicality.  I can work all day, hard and efficient.  If I make a mistake,  I am almost always capable of correcting it.  It is a goal of mine to not break something I cannot fix.  My skills really are wide and varied to the point that I do not know I have it until it happens.  Computers are not a mystery to me,  although I stray away from wanting to code and build computers.  I am courteous and kind to all customers and am a pretty good salesman.  Take it that I'm selling plants.  Finance is not my strong point,  but I can make money fairly quickly. 

Forgotten thoughts.
I own enough gear to live in the woods. (really only enough for myself,  but I do share) Most of it was salvaged or bought at thrift shops.  I own a 1996 safari starcraft.  It has minor issues, no tags or insurance,  but it is a goal of mine to fix her up,  pack my gear in,  and hit the park's.  My job at the nursery has ended for the season after about 9 months.  This has left me pinching pennies and I do not think I will be investing heavily in my van.  At this point I may just call a tow truck to pick it up.  I only paid 600 for it in running condition so I am not attached to it.  It is a sweeet van though.  With that in mind I am even willing to store my gear and van, pack a pack and bag, and hit thegreyhound.   I am pretty flexible. 
If I have caught anyone's interest please inquire.  I have a Facebook and email so that we can potentially get to know one another. 
My composition skills could use some work,  I was never good with closings in school.  If it may,  thanks for reading and taking time to read.  I hope this message was well received and that I find a team.  Until then,  have a great new year and may the wind be at your back.

Danny

Danny! Danny! Danny I am beside myself with excitement at your post! I am looking for someone just like you, as I share many of the same attributes and am trying to form a community in eastern TN on our large wooded property (with pasture). I am a mother, a shepherdess, a permaculture plantaholic, I spin/knit/weave wool from my sheep, wookworker, beekeeper, etc, etc. I love LEARNING too!! I am always working on too many projects and need HELP! OK, I need to take some deep breaths! We MUST talk!! wolfcharmer@yahoo.com, but I think I found you on FB.

Hey Dan. Im 23 and in a similar boat. Im from Northern California and just recently got involved in bike packing. I will be traveling to different farms and permaculture sites around the Pacific Northwest and possibly mid/southern Cali.

Do you have a wwoof account? Maybe we could link up and combine efforts to create a sustainable farm/site. I am trying to gather emails and connect with young people who are dedicated to sustainability/ permaculture/ green building and everything organic. My instagram is @youth_of_the_world . if you are interested in talking, send me a direct message there.

Good to hear from you.

I can't recommend Theron Beaudreau highly enough. He's in Nacadoches, TX and has 100 plus acres. The site is in early stages of switching from a conventional farm to a food forest paradise. He is an excellent mentor and is connected to one of the most incredible permaculture networks I've had the pleasure of being a part of. There's a great scene in Nacogdoches, and a huge one in Austin. If your intentions are to be at a place for a full season, I would definitely send him an email. http://www.integratedacres.com/

Thanks for the recommendation Elizabeth!  I will certainly look into this.  Though another stint in Texas will need some convincing on my end.  Again thank you.

Also Scott,  I do not have a wwoof account nor do I have an instagram.  I would love to collaborate.  I have provided my email and my Facebook is easily obtained.  Our intentions may be a little apart,  although bike packing is a dream of mine,  I am more seeking a more "permanent" option.  Like I said,  I would love to collaborate and discuss possibilities.  Shoot me an email or find me on Facebook please.
