25F, New Jersey, looking for friends. Mostly looking for people who can meet in person. I have a farm project going on here.

That being said, in the past I traveled to several states and to Mexico to learn about permaculture. In the coming winter I hope to travel again.

More about what I'm doing here:

I'm in Hunterdon County New Jersey, living with a friend's family where I am in charge of their 10 acres of farmland. They seem to trust my judgement, and give me a lot of leeway do whatever I want to this land. I'm trying to convert the shitty straw fields into something more useful!
I started last summer so I consider this year 1.
So far the main focus is building soil, planting windbreaks, and experimenting on annual crops. Next year I hope to get some goats and/or other animals involved in the soil-building. 3 days a week I work a regular job.

Maybe I will be called somewhere else eventually, but I have no qualms about investing my time and effort into this piece of land-- It's earth. If you're waiting to find the "perfect place" to plant trees, then you're not planting enough trees.

More about who I want to meet:

Especially like to meet anarchists, communists, leftists, spiritually connected people, witches and occultists,  polyamorous, queer, and otherwise excellent humans.
Patience and humility are so important.
Incidental feelings of misanthropy are understandable, but on a deeper level I think you should love everyone.

420 bruh

That's all I can think of.

Enjoy this beautiful day, reach out if you please.

Devon

Sounds more than a fun community but 3000km away looking to purchase a piece of land in the South of Spain and invite anyone that wants to carve out their own little world.
good luck out there

Hi Devon,
I'm in Orange county NY. Read my profile if you want to make a new friend or to discuss permaculture plans.
