I'm looking for land with some sort of modest, even temporary living quarters/dwelling for a unique agricultural project.

Like most farms, the idea will be to produce food crops, but the lay out, design, and method of construction will be for the sake of the well being of mind, and spirit.

The basic idea is founded on what I will call a spiritual realization I had almost 20 years ago; the fact that humans are motivated by stresses; the stress for the need to survive.

When a person is locked in survival mode, their thoughts, thinking, moods and attitudes are affected & restricted. We are restricted to the animal mind.

When a person has the cardinal concerns met, a secure livelihood and means of sustenance, and is secure in that particular modality whatever it may be the, mind and spirit are relieved and become able and free to evolve to a higher plain of consciousness.

One way of achieving that is by way of a career, but to have that state of mind dependent on career is to be able to loose it and for the threat of looking it to be constant. Even if one is confident in their role in their career providing the heightened state of awareness and consciousness, because the state is so dependent it is still restricted and has stress intrinsically woven into it as part of its composition. So the state of awareness is not totally free or near its heights.

Teachers like Jesus and Buddha seemed to see this too, and taught there followers to not worry about things like what they will eat tomorrow, to live a faith based existence, and to realize that providence and provisions were all around them.

The farm in my vision grows crops, but more importantly grows peace of mind. It s a meditation farm, a Garden of Eden that facilitates higher states of consciousness and grows piece of mind.

The goal is to create a land scape where in the soil is healthy, thriving and intelligent like a forest floor, and the crops grow in a way that is somewhere in between a landscape park garden, and a natural wild setting.

No monitoring, no crop rotation, the plants and trees become naturalized and many become regenerated by self sewing.

Initially it will take hard work, but the end result is low maintenance.

I am a sincerely devoted meditation practitioner whose been a horticulturalist and interested in soill my whole life.

My interest in botany and horticulture became intense by age 16.
I have worked as a landscaper a little bit in California and Hawaii, have worked on organic produce farms in both California and Hawaii, and on cannabis farms.

I have learned and become very skilled and knowledgeable in New systems of agriculture that also require new systems,of thinking. Dry farming, no-till farming, Natural Farming and biological horticulture all of which can be reorganized in a way that facilitates the naturalization of food crops.

So I would like to use the skills and knowledge that I've developed to make a landscape/ecosystem where in everything around is either edible and nutritious, medicinal, or known to be of use to humans; nothing ornamental.

The belief behind the idea and design is that when a person's senses and consciousness are surrounded by an atmosphere and natural self perpetuating environment that naturally produces the basic needs of all people that it will have a healing and enlightening affect on their mind and soul by way of sublimation of information into the consciousness. In some I expect the effects will be subtle in others more extreme.

If you have any interest in hosting a project like this please contact me. This may seem naive but I'm a highly intelligent and capable person with a good 20 years of experience and learning all geared towards this.

I can answer any questions you could possibly have so feel free to contact me about anything.

Thanks ☺

I loved reading your post and find your vision utterly compelling.  I, too, want and need the land, plants and all life around me as balanced and supportive as possible.  This is my vision for any land, and for the Earth herself.

I'm currently based in the NE, and have settled on Woodstock, NY, and environs as the focus of my efforts.  I don't have land yet either, but work in the gardens of friends and clients.  I work consciously with the nature spirits, which enable me to design, amend, plant and nurture growing things in a way that is in keeping with the universal Spirit, and in alignment with what the land, elementals and plants themselves need. I am wanting to do this as my livelihood,  although progress in this area has been slow.  

It is possible to lay out, install and select materials for gardens and landscaping that are in total harmony with the natural energies of the site.  It's also possible to choose between potential sites to find the lot with the highest natural vibration, and to increase that vibration through conscious planning and planting.  I have the ability to do all of these things, and to help others achieve them.  I can quiz the nature spirits about all of the above and receive replies through intuition or dowsing via muscle testing.  I work in the tradition of Findhorn.

I would love to work with you, Adam, or anyone else who seeks to live and grow in the highest harmony with Nature, and to be an asset to any land we touch.
