Hey everyone love the topic. I’m 18 and live in Rhode Island and as far as I know there are only 2 people from my Highschool class of around 500 intentionally prusing a trade at all, let alone agriculture. Most people would rather go to colllege or bum out. And I don’t feel like college is always a bad option, but I see so many people go just because it’s something to do,because they know they want  a degree, family pressure, but with no clue if their passions. I am on a gap year now and after 2 cancelled programs and a broken wrist I have decided to take the rest of my year and build a food forest on 22 acres I recently was given in central Maine. I am to start in April and would love some company. I have not been to the property but hopefully will soon. I know there is a large lake as a border to one side and there is absolutely nothing built on it. This would be a full restoration/ build but I would like to build it in a manner where I can walk away for a year or so and it can thrive on its own. My dream one day is to have a series of permaculture intentional communities around the world. Starting here. Any advice, inquiries, or general comment totally welcome my email is rooktheanimal@gmail.com. Ps also interested in working for food and shelter on others farms.

Hey my name is Rook, I’m an 18 year old on a gap year. I would be super interested in helping you guys out, I love the idea. Give me a shout at rooktheanimal@gmail.com if you are still looking for a hand.
Hey Tim,
I still plan on going to college in a year or two and would like to be traveling for now, so at least for now I would just voulunteer/ work-to-live. With that being said I love the idea of living communally in Central America in future years, but I have no set plans. I a thinking about traveling through southern Spain and/or the pacific North West trying to further educate myself of permaculture as well as being part of a whole in a more encompassing way. I have no issue staying in a tent. Or building a primative low impact shelter.  Please keep me in mind if you end up acquiring some land and would like a set of hands. Oh and going vegan is not an issue, it is not my current diet, but switching wouldn’t be an issue.
Thanks again,
Rook
