We want to work hard and play hard, building hoop houses for long growing seasons, crafting rocket stoves for sustainable warmth, collecting rain for drink, brewing biodiesel (or beer!), and creating relationships. We want more ideas, too. Some people call this permaculture. Google it! We want to do this with our neighbors, and we want our neighbors to be our friends. Do you want to be our neighbor? We want to live lives of our choosing and feel good about our choices. We want to be prosperous, and do right.
We are a community that is forming around these ideas and ideals: to care for each other, to cultivate the land, and to share the bounty. We are hoping to find help and like-minded people. We are already maintaining and improving living space and growing space just a few miles outside Montgomery, Alabama. We have a new, but successful business sharing our space with temporary guests, but are looking for more permanent residents. We have space on offer for an individual or couple who want to participate and hustle alongside us.

Hi im Mike Turner, just wanted to say hello and that im happy to see that you guys are offering to share your project with other Permies. I have sort of the same thing going on in Palatka, Fl. I didn't see where you were located. I feel like if every post stated the state and town and planting zone it would help the right people find each other. I look hard for people in my zone to trade plants with and get exhausted. Im happy you guys are doing what your doing. You inspired me to post some pics. Keep on keeping on. Cheers!
