I am a middle-aged single female. I think with what's going on in this country, people need to band together to create self-sustaining communities and get away from "progress"! I have been looking for someplace that builds together and creates a living together, as opposed to many communities where you buy your plot of land and build everything yourself on your own land and then share some meals at a community house. There's more to it than that.
I have always said I was born 100 years too late. I like to be out on a farm, my body clock has always been get up when the sun comes up and go to sleep when the sun goes down (when I lived in Fargo, ND and MN, I went to bed about 6pm in the middle of the winter).
I have lots of farming experience, have owned animals all my life and am learning about organic farming (what goes with what to fend off critters and rotate to keep the soil enriched).
And ... I have three lemon trees and two apple trees I've been growing in my house (and outside in the warm months) - I need a big farm to plant them!
