We've just partnered with a tiny house community in Chapel Hill, NC to run an aquaponics mini-farm for our CSA.

They aren't going to want their numbers posted on a public forum, so send me a Moosage with an email address and I'll pass along the digits!

I'm curious to know what you all found.

Have you found your permaculture consultants yet? I have been working closely with two graduates of the intensive permaculture course out at Pickards EcoInstitute. They are very sharp and know their stuff. I'd be happy to pass along your info to them if you are still in need.

Have you found a spot yet? We don't have space right this second, but in a month or so we may. We are in the Raleigh/Durham NC area.
We are in the Raleigh/Durham area, looking for the same. We have joined the Triangle Intentional Communities group but have not gone to a meetup yet. Send me a PM maybe we can chat a bit.

You can grow food in an apartment. I'm sure everyone is familiar with container gardening, but you can also grow in hanging towers, do microgreens on a shelf and hydroponics in plastic cups:

In my apartment I have these towers hanging on a metal work shelf.

When we have our intentional community discussions, healthcare is often a very popular discussion. We have decided that the best option would be to return to the community doctor model. As soon as we can afford it we would hire our own doctor and nurse and set up a clinic for the community. They would take care of all of the basics a small clinic would. We would also want to create our own community single payer plan for those needs the clinic would not be able to provide. We want to build a community that will work well for food production and healthy people. We don't intend to turn our backs on technology such as quality medical care and high speed internet, or even cool toys like drones. They can succeed together. We'll prove it.
