1 dad,  1 son

I am not interested in any narcissist plots,  or work trade/slave situations that when analyzed are no different than feudalist arrangements which are one step away from slavery.

I am however  interested in community, and being a part of one.

What I have to offer is several years of horticulture experience,  and some agricultural experience from working on farms of various types here and there.

Most of my experience is with cannabis, but I have left that,  and have been focussing on fruits and veggies.

As for what I have to offer,  my area of expertise is in biological horticulture/natural farming.

What this means is I use I use live biologically active inputs to help build soil and to grow crops,  and that this is achieved by following the natural sequences of nature, to produce large yields of high quality produce,  but in a natural way.

With a couple of workers helping me I can lay the groundwork of an entire small farm,  run,  and maintain it without tractors,  tillers,  or any other heavy machinery. An area can be transformed into a farm using these methods in a short period of time, or an area that has been impacted can be remedied using theseethods and inputs and can be converted back to the natural way.

As a person I am quiet and  independent. I am uneducated.  I went to 10 highschools but did not graduate.  I went to college a wee bit, but had to drop out to take care of my children. I am intelligent but not in the conventional way.  More so in the penetrating vision that sees through time and reality, but with hints of conventional intellegence kind of way.

I am 44.5, my son is just about 12. The boy is homeschooled.  He is a genuine good boy, with a good and genuine unspoiled heart.  He loves people and is a  socially gregarious extrovert. He is also very intelligent. Between the two of us we could be the text book example of why kids should not go to public school; he's incredibly intelligent,  a self starter and has not assimilated a bunch of unhealthy complexes and will be able to go on to pursue anything while keeping his healthy human outlook. I on the other hand did not go to medical school to go onto a career of research, but instead I developed a bunch of issues,  anxieties,  and insecurities do to the paradox of being isolated within a high population density,  and the unrealistic view of reality I had assimilated. I tried to make a career out of partying and doing drugs.  Yes,  I blame the school system and the society that it shares a mutual dependence with for that and feel lucky that they did not usher me into prison.

I also have a thread in the permies singles forum seeking a female,  so please be careful how you reply,  and indicate which thread you are replying to.

I am actually on an open ended road trip right now,  so am  in a good place to meet with people about this.  I may or may not be going back to my place depending on how all of this goes.

I can produce an excellent reference to my abbilities, to my word and etc from the owner of the land I've been working on all year who has become a dear friend.

Thanks, looking forward to hearing from you!
