I am working on selling my house in Allen Park right now. The plan is to buy a large parcel for permaculture in Michigan to start a homestead. I have quite a few plans on paper about energy creation and conservation, as well as some ideas as to how the land can pay for itself.
Where are you in your planning process? What kind of tribe do you foresee? Have you looked on intentional communities website? Things like shared meals, or how much work someone contributes. How will bills be divided?
