Hey there, Permies! I'm a single, 37-year-old fellow here who recently acquired 24 acres in the Missouri Ozarks. It's a beautiful place, and all that is missing is some other great folks who share the dream of wanting a permaculture-based homestead. I prefer to foster a drug-free, alcohol-free, and Christian environment as well if that makes any difference in your considerations. Let me know if you have any interest in such an endeavor! God bless!

I am hoping to WWOOF in the near future! I have an RV and work online to cover my basic expenses. I am hoping to gain experience with sustainable agriculture, harvesting and canning, and hopefully keeping some canned or dried foods. At what stage is your homestead in? Do you need help with fall harvests this year? Feel free to send me a PM!

Thank you for contacting me, BeeBee. It sounds like you are wanting to do a lot of the things that I'm wanting to do. I haven't planted things for the fall yet. I wasn't quite sure if I would, but I would definitely do so if I had help with it. My homestead is basically a hobby farm at the moment, but it is quite functional for providing what is needed for living.

I'm not quite sure how to message you directly since it looks like your name is blocked out. I'll be glad to do so.

Thank you for the welcoming reply. Which county are you in? I think I'm blocked out because I'm new here and con not moosage yet? Either that or the name BB isn't an acceptable name.

Thank you for replying to me as well, BB. That's strange. It seems like you should be able to send the private messages. I'm relatively close to the Springfield area in Missouri. Where are you currently located?

Usually a name blocked out means the name isn't acceptable...there should be a message about it though in ' purple mooseages' above, in between 'profile' and 'bookmarks and watches'.  If you didn't get a message then maybe start a thread in the forum 'tinkering with this site' to get a moderators attention....or just click on 'report' at one of your posts and ask.

 
Ruth Stout was famous for gardening naked. Just like this tiny ad:
