I've got 20 acres and would love to welcome some old Veteran or someone who needs a homestead space in exchange for just helping me with minor things.  I do wildlife rehab, so must love animals, and no major guns please, no hunting on property.  Excellent water, trees that need thinning.  Hand tool woodworker's paradise.  Tiny home building only, so we don't get in trouble with the county.  If that sounds good to anyone as a permanent situation, please contact me.

We would love to see you, Adam, when you come up this way.  Give a call or send a text when you can.  Dez  530-623-0376   Myriah, you too, come for a visit.  We are narrowing down the right people this summer to complete a longterm staff on hand for the animals, and the gardens, and the building, etc.  But it has to suit you first, so come and see if this is where you'd like to live.  And also Hello again, Ben!  Cheers everyone.

That's so funny, Ben.  That's exactly how I've been trying to handle these damned Himalayan Blackberries.  Including planting my fruit trees among them.  Gotta have some alternative food resource for our resident bears.   And those native blackberries sure do grow slow.

If you ever want to study bears, come and see us.

Not to distract from Karen's post, but if anyone prefers the Klamath River country of very northern California, we have a similar situation, and very much in need of a carpenter.  Forest homesteading.

Pearl, I feel heartsick FOR you.  I'm afraid to leave anything on the property just yet for the very same reason, not even a small solar panel.  So far only a guitar and wheelbarrow have been stolen from us but it's enough to make me scared.  I'm finding law enforcement really is no help in these situations (never there when you need them sort of thing, as always) so I don't know what to do about it myself.  And I live way out in the woods.  Love and prayers.

20 acres mountaintop, good water, Klamath River/Trinity convergence country.  We do wildlife rehab, orphaned and injured, and will use a couple acres for this purpose eventually, but we don't need all of it.  What we need are good people around, just doing their own thing, no hard rules, except you must love animals, especially bears, whom you can live alongside easily, we can teach you.  They're just part of the resident community.  Lots of trees that need thinning, probably a woodworkers delight, great diversity.  A large old terraced garden area with a pond that needs reclaiming.  Ye ole Himalayan introduced blackberry is our enemy, even though delicious on pancakes, we can grow something better and less invasive.  I'm thinking sheep may be our answer.  Any willing shepherds about, I'll be happy to invest in guardian animals and much more, if you are willing to dedicate yourself to both land and animals.  Make a clean and peaceful life privately for yourself if you want.  Just no trash accumulation.  Tiny houses, big backyards, and all logical permaculture tenets apply as the only rules and that's it.  Off Grid.  Land Share/Intentional Community, whatever you want to call it  The land itself is to be left In Trust for anyone who helps.  We are all volunteers here.  We are the stewards.

Jason Padvorac, I laughed out loud when you said 100% got eaten.  I'm in PNW and am trying moringa again this year in a Fort Knox type cage.  The blue jays are already going crazy around it.  They can smell those seeds!

I was looking at the exact same thing!  I've found other less expensive stainless coils, but the inlet/outlet tubes are not positioned the same to enable easy thermosiphoning.  I wish others would replicate and market this exact design at a more reasonable price.  Presently I'm trying to copy it myself using what I can find.  Thanks for the post.

If someone is truly into mountain life, completely off-grid, and especially loves wildlife, I would welcome some quiet prospective homesteadera to help care for 20+ acres, top of a mountain, and its animals.  Trees need thinning.  Tiny houses only.  Trees are abundant and diverse with open spots that need expanding, terracing.  Organic gardening only.  Interested in doing that cool Japanese water constantly flowing through houses thing from our wonderful springs.. as an example of many projects in mind.  Would love to run some sheep with proper guardian animals.  Veterans welcome, but no major guns please, there's no war going on up here and we're not looking to start one.  Great fishing.  The Klamath River is about to be devoid of dams and wild again.  If anyone is interested, talk to Dez at 530-623-0376. The land is paid for, just needs a small community of likeminded permies to carve a companionable living out of its overgrown wilderness, help the elk come through.  I do wildlife rehab and plan to leave the land in trust to those who make it a home community with its wildlife always a priority.

Totally into rocket mass heaters!  They're the greatest!  The less wood chopping and fire building the better.  We have other things to do, right?
