We are just a couple who moved here last year. We need another adult around to build community with, share in the work, and hang out. We have goats and rabbits and ducks and possibly geese and chickens very soon. We have an abysmal failure of a garden (better luck next year, right?) We butcher our own meat, work on our cars, and try to live frugally and build up for a tribal homeland someday. Our goal of the year is growing our own fodder and getting in shape. To be clear: we are weird. We like heavy metal and are politically unaligned. We love Nietzsche and Vine Deloria as philosophers. Our religion is animism with inputs from tradition European religions. We just basically need another cool person around to share in cooking and taking care of things. There’s not a ton of room here, but we have an extra bedroom and room for another persons pet projects. Located in SW Washington, commuting distance to Portland

Hi, Anna, I believe I would bring a number of skills that can help develop permaculture on this homestead and build a tribal space. Look for a PM from me. -F

Hi! Where are you located? Feel free to send a PM if you would prefer not to answer specifics publicly. My partner and I also live in SW Washington in the foothills of the Cascades. We aren't looking for another place to live right now but would love to connect if you're close! Sounds like we have a lot in common

Update: due to difficulties with landlord, we won’t be able to take anyone on right now (sorry). Hopefully we’ll be able to bug our own place soon
 
This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
A rocket mass heater is the most sustainable way to heat a conventional home
