I’m looking for likeminded people to share my home and my life with.
First, the living situation: I own a 9 acre farm in South East/Mid- Michigan. It’s a brand new (to me) piece of property with insane amounts of potential.
I have a number of open rooms I would love to fill with amazing housemates who share a passion for creating something beautiful in this world.
Next, who I am: I’m Bri, a 32 year old free thinking, earth worshiping, lover of all things. I should also add that I am a mother of 2 small humans. You may ask why I say “people” instead of person, up above, and that is because I am a firm believe in love without boundaries. I wouldn’t call myself polyamorous, but I can tell you after (amicabally) ending a marriage and relationship of 14 years, it has become apparent that no one person can be someone else’s everything.
I’m looking for community, a tribe, people with whom to be vulnerable, intentional, productive, communicative, loving. I want friends who connect on an emotional, intellectual, maybe even spiritual level.
I seek the perfection in imperfection. For me, that comes with knowing we are all responsible for our own actions and reactions.
Off of my farm I am an educated professional with a job at an Art Museum that I love. Part of what I love about my work is the flexibility I have in my schedule to pursue other things that I am passionate about.
Those things include spending as much time outdoors as possible, hiking, camping, swimming in lakes, gardening and just generally being productive.
Perhaps I sound like someone you would enjoy connecting with. Perhaps I sound like someone who you would enjoy being housemates with. Either way, I would love to start a conversation.
I am looking for a way to get started doing permaculture, and my issue being a soon-to-graduate college student is that I don't have land to get started doing permaculture. I have spent lots of my free time in the past four to six years reading up, watchign videos, and listenign to podcasts on permaculture, and even taking an online PDC that it is overwhelming how much there is that can be done to make this world a better place, and I am eager to get to work and put permaculture into practice.
Who I Am: I am a 21 year old in college studying biochemistry, outdoors enthusiast, nature-lover, and action-oriented erudite. I love to learn, but I like doing what I have learned about even more. I am openly gay, and I am content being single. After much thought, I am aware of the benefits that cooperative living can provide for people, such as being able to pool resources, alternate tasks, more. Paul Wheaton described it well in his permaculture keynote.
Outside of classes, I currently do Information Technology work and scientific programming. Both of these are good jobs, and I think doing this kind of dry lab work is more up my alley than doing wet lab benchwork. Ideally, I would like to be doing permaculture full-time, but given my current situation, this is not practical. Going to Michigan is a possibility, because they will probably have jobs for IT and scientific programmers.
I am open to meeting new people, and trying to find landowners that need/want gardeners would be awesome for helping me to make my knowledge of permaculture put into practice and make permaculture a reality!
A couple permaculture related designs I have created (done the research for but haven't been able to implement):
Galveston Design for my PDC I got pretty busy in college and didn't post this project when I wrote it freshmen year, but it is a Sustainable COmmunity Garden Plan that I wrote for my Global Public Health class when i took it.
