Aloha All,

Patrick (33) and Savanah (25) here. We're on the search for exciting opportunities as the certified organic farm we currently manage on Maui is for sale and we need to find a new home! We've been farming and practicing/studying permaculture for 8+ (Patrick) and 5 (Savanah) years. We have experience ranging from small-scale homestead farming to large scale production farming. We've each had farm management experience managing crews, nursery, education and training, etc. We have experience working with chickens, ducks, and goats. Patrick has experience with tractors and Savanah has hand pushed rototiller experience although we have a preference for low-impact or a no till approach. Patrick has farmed in the NE, Florida, Louisiana, and Hawaii while Savanah has experience primarily in Hawaii and some experience in Washington State and California. We have experience with community living and enjoy both small town and city life.

Patrick has a love for all things permaculture. He's truly happiest in the field working to create something that is not only functional, but beautiful and harmonious. He loves to teach and learn and is truly passionate about making COMPOST. Patrick has experience working with adults with developmental disabilities on farms, art projects, and daily care.

Savanah enjoys working in the field and in he nursery as well as working in the kitchen. She loves to bake bread and pastries, ferment foods and beverages, pickle and preserve foods, dehydrate, and cook. She enjoys making herbal body products including soap, sunscreen, salves and balms, lip balms, face masks, body scrubs, etc.

We're interested in value added enterprising whether that be value added food products, value added body products, etc. We're also interested in education and food justice. We live a pretty quiet life, enjoy reading, chess, tennis, biking, hiking, music, art. Preference for Western U.S. as most of our family is in Northern California and Arizona, but open to all opportunities.

Thanks for reading!

You know, a lot of Hawai'ians end up in Texas...

These guys just hosted a Darren Doherty REX course this spring and are quietly looking for long-term team members: http://www.integratedacres.com/

Broad acre, 200+ acres, I keep telling him he needs a value added alligator farm.

Aloha, good luck!

Hi All,

Just wanted to update this posting because the property we have been managing has officially sold. We will be back in California in June and will be spending time exploring the west coast for part of the summer. We appreciate those who reached out to us already, but we haven't found something that fits yet. We'd love to meet up with other passionate permies while we're exploring.

Thanks,
Savanah and Patrick

Greetings, I read this topic with great interest (I've founded a small ic myself 2 months ago on 11 acres) I wanted to put a few comments in from my research beforehand ( founding was my last resort, we hoped to join one) but in looking we found nearly every community was communist/socialist in its philosophy (or religious) the communist ones all failed (or are failing) for the same reasons communism always fails (think tragedy of the commons and then look into molyneux's videos on socialism for more in depth explanation here) and the religious ones require a suspension of reason that I'm incapable of.

I'll put in a few key points I focused on in creating our community which is off to a start and only time will tell.

We are not communist or socialist, quite the opposite we are voluntaryists(anarcho-capitalists - we believe in the free market, non aggression principle, personal responsibility/self ownership, and a lack of state or rulers) we engage with each other voluntarily (or disengage) and find that our relationships prosper through mutual benefit and mono cultural mini society) (we are not multicultural and do not agree on multiculturalism - we actually enjoy everyone involved being on the Same page culturally and having the same values and expectations)

That said, we choose to help each other and function much like a family.

I chose to found this group called Galts Retreat, based on the Ayn Rand character John Galt because other communities I looked into didn't come close to this. All are failed and the others I looked at are showing the signs of failure in the future.

I wanted to put this out there incase our values align. If you think taxation is theft, you'll probably fit right in
