Just found the site about a week ago and am enjoying it quite well! I've had two different off grid homesteads over the years, one in Manton and another just outside of Interlochen. With it being -19f this morning I'm glad to not be living in a tent like I did in the early 90's! Returned to the cities (Flint and Detroit) for a few years and although I can see the potential there It's like herding cats to get more than a couple of people at a time on the same page. Had a landscape gardening business for about ten years, was a land surveyor for twelve and worked several years in the mental health treatment system. If anyone wants advice or help with the design process on thier property, hit me up!
