My husband and I are looking to purchase property in BC, specifically either along the west-south coast of Vancouver island any where from Sayward to Sooke or on the west coast of the main land up to Squamish or even over to Powell River area. The more acreage the better but it is expensive so we could manage with as little as 1 acre if needed for the right property. We are looking to live mostly "off grid" but will be looking for a place where we can get reliable cell phone service and high speed internet whether via satellite or other. We currently grow/raise/hunt and forage a lot of our own food and will want to continue this at the new property. We are looking for a like minded person or family that is also looking to purchase some land for homesteading. With the cost of land in BC it can be very expensive and with us wanting to keep costs down as much as possible we are wondering if any one else interested in the same ideal. We have noticed there are some acreages that allow for a principal residence and a smaller "cottage" up to 600 square feet. We ourselves would like to build and live in the "cottage" as we don't require much, while the other person can build a regular size home or "main residence" if desired. The other person/family will need to be able to put down a large down payment as will we I imagine at least $10,000 each? We would like to stay under $150,000 total in price so it would work out to $75,000 each. Obviously we would have to discuss many things and agree before we could move forward to looking for land, purchase etc. We are not looking to be an "eco-village style" were we have to share labour and put so much money back in to the property and such but rather split the acreage 50-50 and you do what you like we do what we like with respect to one another and helping each out each other would be great if possible but not mandatory. If you think you might be interested let us know!

A little info about us: we are a couple in our late 30's, no children, don't smoke, occasionally drink. We fallow an "earth based" religion but accept all religions. we don't care if your straight, LGBT or what colour you are as long as your not an a$$ hole we will treat you with respect and simply ask for the same. Yes we do eat meat and most of which we raise/hunt ourselves and you must be comfortable living next door to that as we "process" much of it in our back yard. We have dogs and cats who are our "kids" and we do NOT let them roam free and we ask the same of you as there is nothing worse then the neighbour's dog killing your chickens or cat pooping in your veggie garden.

Anyways thanks for looking!!

we are located in Chatham-Kent area. NO I haven't seen any other american chestnut trees, just horse chestnuts. We also have English walnut, heart nut, black walnut and 2 other types of walnuts can't remember the name of them right now and those last 2 trees are absolutely loaded to the brim with nuts this year!
Hi not sure if this helps but I have an american chestnut growing here, just 1 tree. Don't know a whole lot about it as it was here when we moved in. Looks as if it was cut mostly down but regrew from the stump. Seems to be doing well and last year was loaded with nuts. This year not as many but still some. You can have some seeds from it if you like? If so just pay for shipping and you have have the seeds for free when they are ready in the fall.
ya they do have a papery coating on them. I seen some fuzzy ones in the bush though and left them cause I always thought if it's fuzzy you can't eat it no mater what it is.

hey guys these ferns are growing in a flowerbed that was here when we moved in. These ferns get pretty decent size not small like the wild ones I see growing in the bushes. Do you know if they are edible? Thanks for your time!!

thank you so much everyone! really got a lot to "chew on" but please by all means keep it coming! what ever you have to share!! So many great links and info and many things for me to have to think about! It's great to have such a response and such knowledgeable people! Glad to know I'm not alone in my quest to not rid but bring to balance my Candida issue.

where would I find xylitol ? would it be at a health food store?

yes I would say the main cause of my problem WAS my diet. I was young and stupid and "too busy" to eat right. If it wasn't instant noodles, microwave dinners or be able to be deep fried I didn't eat it. I drank soda like it was going out of style and ate out at fast food joints like 3 times a week! My health started "failing" I was always so tiered and aching and so exhausted some times it was all I could do to get through my shift. Massage didn't help, Chiropractor didn't help, over the counter pain meds did little and this went on for years, the doctor kept telling me "some people just have more aches then others". Finally I went for a second opinion and was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and arthritis. So I started reading up on these diseases and found a real cause of it was DIET! So I started slowly switching my diet over to little to no refined foods and add in a whole lot more fruits and veggies and I do feel a little better but I am still plagued by other issues as well such as chemical sensitivity and what I believe to be psoriasis (blisters on the palms of my hands and feet) and these little "bumps" all over my arms and legs. So while researching my symptoms I came across Candida and I pretty much match ALL the symptoms. So here I am gathering info and getting ready to to go for it! LOL!!

Thanks for the info! I know I'm gonna have a hard time with no wheat/bread (carbs). I tried stopping all carbs on a diet I was on one time 2 days in and I was sooo sick major head ache etc. I went another 2 days and couldn't handle it anymore had some toast and peanut butter and with in 30mins I was just fine, head ache disappeared. So obviously I'm addicted to it. But so need to do this I have so many issues (auto-immune related) I seriously need to get a hold of it. If anyone has any type of diet plans, meal planner, recipes etc. that you can share that would be awesome! Cause I'm not real creative with veggies lol!! Thanks again!!

not sure if I'm in the right section. I'm looking for info about how to get rid of Candida naturally. There is so much "crap" on the internet about "buy my product, buy my book" Does any one have or know of a good candida "diet" and Cleanse that I can make my self? Any info at all would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks for reading!
