Welcome to the forums. I live at an ecovillage in western Canada, we have 15 people on-site here now as we have been winding down our summer/fall seasons after a very busy summer. We are a demonstration and education site, welcoming more than 8,000 visitors per/yr. I invite you to have a look at our website htttp://www.ourecovillage.org
to see if our land can be of interest to you. I do see your fore mentioned skillset and that would be welcome here. We cover all aspects of Permaculture, natural building, organic master gardening programs, animal husbandry and spiritual aspects by the way of council. Formally Native Indian land from years gone by, the spirits of the land abound. So J.lee, have a look at our website and feel free to contact me if you would like any further information or if I can be of assistance.
Be Well.. Love & Light.. Brock
