Thanks Nicole! Oh, is that what it looks like on a desktop? I'm just barely starting to try to customize my wordpress theme so once I figure out how I hope I can tweak the site to be more accessible.

Here's my latest post: Cavern Aquaculture, Capillary Action, and Dendro-Rhizo-Sculpture

Thanks Gary! I think comments should be working...
I'll double check though.

Hi everybody. Sorry for the long silence.

I started a new blog: evanarchitective.wordpress.com

If you enjoyed this ant village log, you're invited to join me on the next leg of my journey. I'm looking forward to sharing, discussing, and continuing to explore permaculture with you!

Thank you, Alan.

*affects an auctioneer voice*

Current bid is $800. Do I hear $850? Only $850 for these beautiful improvements, folks.
Thanks Josh! What a generous offer! And thank you for the kind words of support and encouragement! I'll send you a paypal address privately.

I'm looking forward to documenting my experiences again. We're currently looking into options for the right platform. Hopefully I'll be able to share a link from here to our new blog.

The adventure continues, and I'm confident that we'll find the right piece of land with which to sculpt, build, and grow our visions of abundance and harmony.

$800 is what I initially paid to come out here as an "ant," hence why I felt it would be a fitting amount at which to start the auction. I'd like to think that the improvements added some value on top of that, but I guess we'll see what the market thinks.

I've certainly received far more of value than that already, in terms of experience, confidence, and knowledge, not to mention generous gifts of tools, seeds, and support. And all the amazing friendships I've made are of incalculable value! The future looks bright and overflowing with possibility! I can't wait to share it with y'all!
Thanks Nicole. Wishing you the best with all your ventures as well.

A thought, this might be a good opportunity for someone who plans to attend the rocket mass heater innovators event or another event at wheaton labs. Someone could break even in a couple weeks by saving on hotel costs alone. They would have a house to stay in and could rent out the other house to other attendees.

Also, since this opportunity is available only for a limited time, (the auction ends next week,) maybe someone could put it in the daily-ish...

Kai and I are selling our improvements. You can read all about and see hundreds more pictures of what we've built and created here:

Kai's thread: https://permies.com/t/62917/permaculture-projects/Kai-Belated-Posts

Over the course of more than two years, we developed a 1.5 acre plot, some of the improvements thereon include: hundreds of feet of roundwood fencing with several beautiful hand-carved wooden gates, thousands of square feet of hugelkultur raised beds and berms, dozens of different species of established perennials (including comfrey, apple, apricot, raspberry, willow, rhubarb, sunchoke, sugar maple, and many more edible, medicinal, and support species,) several seasonal ponds, an earth-sheltered winter poultry coop and a movable summer poultry coop, an outdoor kitchen, an earth-sheltered tiny house with partly attached greenhouse, and a hand-sculpted cob tiny house with an earthen roof and rainwater catchment.

These improvements are being sold as-is. No guarantees. No refunds. No warranty express or implied. Buyer assumes all liability. No questions asked. No questions answered. Only the improvements are being sold, not the land on which they are located. Our remaining rent (paid until the end of 2017,) along with all of Kai's and my accumulated "fysh," "candy," and excavator hours will be included. Any questions regarding rent, "fysh," "candy," excavator hours, or ongoing costs to occupy the land should be directed to the landlord and self-described "tyrannical dictator" Paul Wheaton or his land manager Fred Tyler.

The bidding starts at $800. The minimum bid-raise is $50. The auction will end on Tuesday, September 19th at 1 pm mountain time, at which point the improvements will be sold to the highest bidder. If payment is not received from the highest bidder within 24 hours, then the improvements will be sold to the next highest bidder, and so on, etc.

Payment types accepted include: Paypal, Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum
