Two Potential "Villages"

    I have 5 acres in Washington, where a sacred space is being built to restore balance and harmony between people and wildlife.
    Additionally, I have been hired to create a similar space in Texas. My life and time are now divided 2 weeks a month between the two.
    Before I took on the Texas project, I ran  landscape, construction, and tree service companies, in addition to building the Sanctuary/farm, and preparing to launch a botanicals line, and had a mind to open a local restaurant, if I found the right Co/owner.
    I, like many have been dreaming and searching for the right community. I do have an incredible community worldwide, but not such an intimate one that I can co-habit a couple acres together in happiness and harmony. Inevitably that means I have more growing to do and social skills to obtain and more seeking and patience.
    Additionally I have been single and romantically alone for most of 5 years. Now I see it effecting my professional life and other areas of my life adversely. For example, when interviewing potential tribemates or employees, I'm looking for "Her". I have posted in the singles section for years. Nothing that quite fit the bill yet.
    I feel my life will be much more complete, and my business and missions ever more successful and "professional" or ethical, when I find my partner.
    If I could find like minds, I would like to see a true village at the Sanctuary. At the property in Texas, there is an opportunity for a few people to make a living, living on site and building a food forest/off-grid village infrastructure. The only equity we have there is our salary, and what organically evolves in the social dimensions.
    But this IS AN OPPORTUNITY, to build tribe and community that might be semi-nomadic and travel around building food forests, restoring eco-systems, and building villages. I am also willing to pay for competent help at the Sanctuary in Washington. I do also accept interns/apprentices.
    I am not perfect. I will be 29 years old next month. I am "binary" in my sexuality. Meaning I was born a man and am attracted to women who were born as women. I have spent over 5 years living, working, and dancing in very lgbtq poly communities, and I'm not into it. No offense.
    I am very open to thoughts, feedback, visit requests, intern/apprentices, job applications, networking, and more.... Thanks for being amazing!

At least you're honest. I know for myself and other women friends, the theme of men being involved from a place of wanting to be involved but in reality they want to be romantic, is repetitive, annoying, and destructive to actual community.
 
It sure was nice of your sister to lend us her car. Let's show our appreciation by sharing this tiny ad:
