just throwing this out there....I own 5 acres in the high prairie in central New Mexico and would love some help/company/inspiration and muscle. I'd love to find someone that wants to park their tiny home or RV on the property while we build another living structure. lots of crazy ideas but overwhelmed with the work load and loneliness. There's currently a large rebuilt home, composting outhouse, 3 acre horse pasture, indoor and outdoor gardening area, rain water collection, place for chickens, and a baby food forest that may or may not have survived last year's grasshopper attack.
the property is 50 miles from Albuquerque and 75 miles from Santa Fe. It's in a very poor county, meaning land is cheap and taxes are low. there aren't really any decent jobs nearby so you'd need your own income stream to feed your self and such. this may be a good opportunity for someone that wants to get their permaculture feet wet without the commitment of land ownership.
there is a working well on the property, electricity(though I'm striving to be off grid), wireless internet, and homemade solar hot water heaters. I'm a single woman, 58 with a strong back and good health. My son owns half the property but works in Albuquerque and stays in town. He does come out regularly to build, create,and enjoy the sunsets.
you can see photos of the work we're doing on the Facebook, my user name is Deb Diz Fearon, the photo album is Broken Shovel Ranch. those photos are available to the public.
Let's discuss the possibilities.
