I am seeking truth seekers, green builders, farmers, visionaries, adventurers, fearless souls and free spirits, to join with me and create a sustainablepermaculture site, on the West Coast.
Main Aspects.The main purpose of the Fellowship is to unite young people, who are dedicated and passionate about sustainable lifestyles. Take a look at a definition of the word Fellowship.
Friendly association, especially with people who share one's interests.
For those who are interested incob building, biodynamic farming, and all types of sustainable experimentation, this is for you. The Permaculture centers we build, will act as community farms, as well as training centers, for us a to experiment with different methods of sustainability. Along the way, we will help others with their farms and sustainable projects. I am setting the Bar high because we are young and we are capable of creating a world never seen before. I chose the age group, (21-28), because together we need to be strong, energetic, and able to rough it (campout), yet old enough to have studied/read into the world of permaculture,spirituality, and some of the main concepts of homesteading.
When and Where.Now. If you want to be a part of this fellowship, you must mobilize quickly. The starting point of our Journey will be the Bay Area California. Here we will have 2-3 weeks to connect, plan, contact farms/sites, and figure out transportation. BikePacking and Bike Touring is Highly Encouraged and Recomended. Travel via car/truck is optional, if necessary.
Price.The price you pay is dependent upon you, and your ability to get to the Bay Area, by [or before] Feb 8th. Have $100-$200 on you, and preferably a bank account (this isn't required). You need Adequate Clothing (Winter-Proof), A sleeping bag, a small tent, and preferably a bike. If you don't have a bike and/or bikepack setup, I can help you purchase and set something up. If you don't want to bike, a car is possible, if you have the resources. In order to cultivate crops for the 2017 season, we need to be on land by spring, and so there is a sense of urgency. [b]We will be beginning the journey in Early February.[/b] If you are not able to make it to the Bay Area, by Early February, there will be other opportunities for you to join up along the journey.
[b] Experience. It is necessary you have some experience growing plants organically, and working hard with your body. You don't have to be super strong or very technically skilled, but you do need to be a hard/fun-worker. And Trade skills are highly encourage and will be of great aid to us.
Attitude. You must have a Can-Do Attitude. You must be Courageous. And you must be Resourceful. It is important we are each strong in our own, so we can help each other when things get tough. You need to be someone who can observe their mental state and not create drama. Together we will be like the 300 Spartans, only we aren't fighting and killing, we are building and farming. Like a Spartan, you need to be a strong team member. There is no room for doubtful or fearful people, in our Fellowship, only Optimists. This is the Sustainable Renaissance and you have an opportunity to be an artist in it. This Fellowship Inspires me greatly just thinking about it, and who will join.

To tell you a little bit about myself. I am a 23 year old male, most passionate about living in harmony with Nature and creating with others. I studied Music Production, as well as Environmental Studies and Philosophy, at my local Community College. I love skateboarding and take it with me mostly everywhere I go.
Funky, rhythmic, and soulful music is my favorite and lately I've been taking up video production and Photography. I promise I am kind, respectable, humorous and spiritual. The need for humans to embrace Nature has given me an energy to create a new world of design and lifestyle. I know people like me exist, and you may be one. We have a strong desire to start building and create our own farmsteads.Take Advantage of this Opportunity. Take a risk. Start Living in Harmony
I do not want to beg you to apply, because this will work best for people who are positive this is what they want to do. For those who do apply, [b]I Look Forward to hearing from you[/b]. Welcome to the 2017 Permaculture Fellowship.
He who would do great things should not attempt them all alone.
