I don't own this land.  I am a non profit board member though I am the only one living here.  Other members are retirees and financial backers.  I own and left behind my 2 acre and a house to my ex-gf and her 3 children and 7 dogs and to help with this project that fits my lifestyle. We don't hate each other.  We are just from two different worlds. She parties and drinks and smokes and wastes a lot of money. All good but not for me. I stayed for years for the children but finally left for them. I do have over as much as I can get them and I always miss them. I love children. I rent a single wide trailer here with 2 rooms and 2 bedrooms. There is a 10 room house about to be refurbished with a bunker I am currently using as an art studio. It will become a community center which will need a manager. I plan to convert a bus into an RV for future summer travels.  I would love to meet a like minded woman.  I can't date a smoker or an alcoholic and I am allergic to dogs and cats.  Though I love all animals.  I have a 7 years-old daughter that does not live with me but we spend good time together. I am an environmentalist,  strive to grow my own food, practice sustainability and believe in sacrificing for the better.  I am not into material things yet like practical things like a tractor etc to help on the farm.  I am not vegetarian but it seems like I am,  though I believe in a balanced diet like adding a little meat, mostly fish. I do whole foods and trying stay away from processed foods. I am also an artist and love to be creative and just have fun with it though I have made a living off it.  I am a park ranger as a regular job at a state park.  If you want to know more I would live to chat.

Hi, Michael!  Where are you in Florida?  I am interested in moving in the area of Gainsville, Fl, to be near family.  I am also interested in joining a sustainable community.  I have experience in gardening and country living.

Thanks, Barbara

Have you started working on a skoolie? I'm hoping to use mine as a cabin for a few years while I build a real cabin or yurt and little homestead around it. I'm still looking for land but the experience from converting a school bus is worth the time.
 
My pie came with a little toothpic holding up this tiny ad:
