Looking for a community

Hello out there LOL. I have been living in community for the past several years but have found the experiences rather unsatisfying. Most communities, in my experience, aren't what they say they are. They either have a hierarchy that preached equality as long as it's with their exceptions or they have some overwhelming ideology that is forced on the membership. I love the community life. Everyone taking care of one another and building a life together.
My skill set is varied and eclectic LOL. I spent most of my adult life working in the construction field doing mostly electrical work, but I have a good working knowledge of all construction. The skills I'm proud of and enjoy are cooking and food preservation (very important, the grid will fall and we have to be prepared). I am also a trained Baker (all types of breads and some sweets). The past few years I have also been broadening my knowledge of solar power as well as other alternative electrical generation.
I would like to find a small community that is getting established or just needs experienced people to help build up the community. I am currently in Missouri but if things work out I am more than willing to relocate.
If anyone wants to contact me for further details or discussion please email me shimshone1972@gmail.com.
Thanks, Shimshone

These are not the droids you are looking for. Perhaps I can interest you in a tiny ad?
