Hey everyone!
Before I get into the nitty gritty, I'd like to tell you a bit about myself -I'm valisa- 32 years old,pronouns: she/her, feminist that supports intersectional feminism, currently work in a hospital and attending school for resp. Therapy and previous career in mental health (6 years rape trauma and DV, along with behavior modification), small farming experience (grew up with a large garden, chickens, ducks, geese, horses, rabbits, etc), cook vegan (not a necessary-I'm not militant about it-just a personal choice), I'm all about clean eating and a healthy lifestyle but I'm very science minded and logical about it-herbal remedies are awesome but not a cure-all and I feel that's important to understand, I use to be incredibly rowdy and loved trouble a bit in my youth lol-but have calmed over the years so I'm not a heavy drinker (but party on the occasion), I'm familiar with small community living and before major plans happen I like to chat with folks, meet, Skype...whatever to ensure everyone is compatible for living, learning, and growing together ^.^

Whoever is interested, please understand that I'm not going to get this started for another 3 years although I will be heading out there semi regularly to prep and plan the land, build the outbuildings and do some of the smaller stuff. The 40 acres Is zoned to build, is pretty heavily wooded, has part of a large river running through it (I have the mineral rights for the property as well), about 45 minutes out from a descent sized town.

So far there's me and a couple of others (I met through the punk scene and from when I use to hitchhike).  All are incredible people, VERY aware (in terms of social justice/human experience type shit) good humans that are driven to do this as well and very hard working.

I included an image so you guys can get a face with the post

Feel free to look me up on Facebook as well, it might be helpful as I'm very involved in the social justice world and if you're not okay with my posts you probably won't be okay with me lol if you choose to add me, please message me on there first.

Congrats on getting some land! Would you be willing to share what river runs through the property?

I hope you realize your vision!

I recommend learning about natural farming.  Videos by Chris Trump and talks by Drake are 1st rate.  This is a site I am making but many of the input are finished.

I look forward to hearing of your workings and success.

Good luck with getting things set up! Heavily wooded with a large variety of trees, or mostly a few species? If you plan to use wood on-site to build structures, it might be handy to cut and debark some trees now and some more before you arrive, and replant with other species like fruit/nut trees that will handle the conditions, so they are established a bit before you arrive and can start producing sooner. The cut trees can then season properly and be dry and ready to use for building. Depending on the area of Oregon it could take some time to dry out the cut trees.
