Would like to meet others around to learn from, but that might be hard with my Sun/Mon weekend. Looking for an alternative to the corporate rat race though... working on paying off debts this year, and trying to get something started in my backyard (about 1/6 acre back there.)

It seems as though there are more of us (Christian permies looking for community) out there than I once thought I have land in upstate new York that has amazing potential (yes, I know, Upstate New York??) It is 60 acres that was once used as a heritage farm meant to show farm life in the late nineteenth century. It still has many of the original buildings, although they are in need of attention. There is a cider press building, small blacksmith shop, sugar shack etc... Anyway, I wish more of you like-minded, Christian agrarian folks lived nearby.

Can a "christian agrarian" community be defined ? I think I get "agrarian" but not as sure as what qualifies as "christian" in our present conversation.
What does it take for a community effort to qualify as christian?
Thanks very much for the help.

I have been looking to do something very similar to the community you are looking to create. I am able to invest and purchase now as well. I am very sensitive to chemicals and EMFs (especially wireless devices)...
