But seriously, I am greatful to be able to post here. Thanks moderators and maintainers.
I have no money, I have no land, and no resources. But I have a dream. Live off the land. Keep bees. Grow mushrooms for the community and hemp for the hurd and barley for malting. On this parcel I will have an inn. There will be three things on the menu and micro brews, and wine aged in maple barrels I coopered myself after traveling to france and learning from some masters. There will be cheese from the goats and cows. A bard every friday night.
On this parcel there will also be a thriving artisan collective. Outdoor, covered workshops filled with craftsman, artisans and the like, learning and practicing their trades, like glass blowing, blacksmithing, basket weaving, glass making, clay making, baking, throwing, pounding, moulding. There will be a vintners and brewers, and coopers. Lace makers, weavers, wool spinners and dyers. I'm slathering.
There will be limestone on the land and nearby we will have experimental archaeology - a castle building in medieval time. Oh I dunno, maybe not a castle, but something of ashlar and rubble! With stone masons and carvers teaching their trade...
I could go on... I want to go on...passive house, sashimono, hempcrete, clay, underground garden...steam hut...yoga meditation studio...adult jungle gym replete with climing wall and giant tire geodome. Absolutely out-of-this-world playground for the kids...tree houses...sigh. I better stop. Tomatoes, potatoes, and NOPE. Im stopping.
I will look to this forum to fuel my fire. Have a great day permies!

Quick question. Do I actually belong here? Before I immerse myself, best to talk to the local smart guys in charge. Its not the usual way people usually introduce themselves... But it sounds like a good idea to the moment. Your comment?
