I am a 34 year old horticulturist with a focus in landscape design and background in engineering. My wife and I have 10 acres of forested land divided by an ephemeral creek and have started to lay in the initial infrastructure (driveway, well, etc). Our mission is to forest farm, have a small shop front for medicinal herbs, tea, healthy snacks, etc. and to provide a welcoming place for community to gather, celebrate and learn.
The permies forums have been informative and stimulating so I decided to go ahead and join in the community.
