Hello, I'm Tom. Not so new to life, closing in on 50, but new to this forum and new to permaculture, homesteading, off-grid and whatnot. Both my wife and I are interested in getting a little place for ourselves, where we can largely take care of ourselves.

My wife has experience growing food and (re-)using what's available and I've got some experience with DIY and a technical mind. We both think we'll be able to manage to get something going, but also are aware we need to learn a lot. But as we're not in a hurry, that's ok.

Learning a lot means reading loads and this forum seems to be a good source, thanks.

I already have a initial question, but i'm not sure in which of the subforums to post this:

We're currently looking into buying some land in the Philippines. Obviously we have some criteria: affordable, not too far from a town (not to close either!), near a road, ... But from a permaculture perspective, i'm not sure what to consider and also cannot really find much info on that. So i'm wondering what aspects to consider when buying the land?

Thanks,

Tom

That's cool. I don't have any advice on growing things, sorry. I do have a few friends that have retired in that region but mostly lost contact so it must be good! Someone here should have some advice, I cant imagine it being difficult, or anymore difficult rather. When are you planning on moving?
