We are a family of 5, me (30), wife (26), and our daughter (7), and our cat (6 yrs) And our 6mo puppy. ISO: We are hoping to find a way to learn about homesteading, ecoliving, permaculture, farming, intentional community. We live in Texas and our goal is to find a small group of people to homestead with. We don't have land or money. But we do have skills. Wife can bake, make jams, knowledge of canning, has knowledge about insects, water quality/safety, some anatomy/ biology, and is hoping to possibly pursue a higher degree (master's/doctorate) and work outside the home to bring in extra income. I can cook, sew, clean, crochet, up cycle arts and crafts and have extensive experience in child care, I'm hoping to be able to unschool/homeschool our child and any other children who would want to be involved. We are a very creative family who likes to DIY, craft, create new things. We want to extend our knowledge base and learn how to raise animals, grow food and herbs, and learn more about building structures. We're not afraid of hard work and want the whole family to be involved. Things to know about our lifestyle::: We are humanists/atheists, who are poly and kink minded, 420 friendly. Family is the most important thing to us and we want to extend that family with the right people. We're looking towards the pacific northwest, Washington is ideal for us. There's so much more than what I can merely write in this little box. Please email me if you're interested in helping/having lots of help. We are eager to learn more and interested to see what's out there.

Andrew, Your post has struck a chord. My family has been researching intentional community living for almost 3 years now. We've never found a place that felt like it could really work for us. Usually the "sex positive or Poly" aspect of my relationship with my wife freaks people out. I'm going to check out your website but I thought I would post a reply here as well.
We are a family of 5. Myself, my wife and our 7yo daughter, we also have a cat who just turned 7 and a 6month old puppy. My wife and I have been feeling very trapped by the "rat race" of suburban life and our health has suffered. We are college educated (my wife has a bachlors in biology and criminal justice (double major) and currently works for water quality. I finished real estate school, but taught preschool for 5 years and we are also girl scout troop leaders, and we enjoy crafting and growing the few things we can as renters, and cooking together. I quilt and sew, I like to make jewlery and dread jewlery, and many other types of artistic crafts. We currently home school our daughter who is advanced for her age. My wife prefers to work outside the home as we have a serious need for health insurance, she has epilepsy and has to keep on her medication, though we have recently started researching CBD oils and Marijuana as an alternative to the chemicals in her medications, but we have to consult with her neurologist before we get too far on our own with that aspect.
we're nerds, we like to read a lot, play D&D, sit around talking and listening to music and we do like to play video games but not as much now that we're a bit older. We currently live in Texas, but we've been looking at job options for my wife in Washington and we're hoping to be able to move there when our lease is up, possibly sooner if she can find a job, or something else works out.
We are not afraid of hard work. My wife lived on undeveloped land as a child until she graduated high school, they didn't have running water and they had to make due with a lot of unconventional ways of life. She learned canning, and baking among a few other things like hunting and dressing and fishing.
I had a more conventional upbringing, but I'm ready for a change, my grand parents owned a farm and I used to help with the garden, we grew squash, corn, potatoes, green beans, zucchini, strawberries, and had a pear and an apple tree. I want to learn more about growing an herb garden for cooking and medicinal purposes. We want our daughter to grow up and be self sufficient, we want to raise our family in a community of healthy adults who are supportive, protective, accepting and free of religious bias. I feel like our life has so much potential, we just need to find the place where we fit in peace and harmony, and many adult conversations!

Does anyone know of any intentional communities near Austin, Tx? I'm searching for a place we might be able to rent a small space, while having the option to help grow food and develop a sustainable lifestyle, possibly occasional community meals etc.. Nothing religious please.

WOW! Your story sounds so similar to mine! There are some differences of course, but you inspire me. I hope to one day have land or live in an eco village with my family of 3. We are renting from my mother, we have nothing. No assets, no credit, no way of ever getting a loan and my family thinks we are insane for even considering this kind of life, hell even my wife gives me funny looks sometimes. I won't give up though. I know what I want for life, I know what I want to teach my daughter. Eventually it will happen for us. I'm a stay at home mom who home schools the kiddo, and my wife works 16hr days. The extra money (when there is some) is being saved and one day we hope to have some land to really start out life. Away from small town suburbia and into perma culture living! Thank you for sharing this. I can't explain how much it helped me keep my eyes on my goal, I really needed it today.
