Please check out our website: www.sparkrootfarm.com

We're a permie, waldorfy-unschooling family of 5. We've got 6 acres and have done a lot already, but there is always so much more to do--we've got all kinds of plans and intentions, and we've learned that can't do it all alone.

If you like what you see on our website, and would like to talk more about joining in here, please PM me. Aside from all listed on the website, we are getting into rabbits and bees as well.

We are ISO like-minded permie families who can work hard, and play hard, with us. There's harvest and abundance to be had, when we work and share together.

What a cool opportunity Alisa,

You have a great website! Mine is dentonsbackyard.com and it is under construction right now as we are deciding what it is we are going to do next, but you can find some good information about what we've done.

My family includes my fiance, Matt, who is great at creating efficient operations; my dog, Paul, who is an excellent look out and garden protector; and myself a companion planter and natural food encourager. We live in a medium sized city and started market gardening in our backyard and in a vacant lot. We have partnered with a similar farmer in town and helped create abundance for a 80 member CSA, out of three in-town lots we've been growing on. We have taken a keen interest in mushrooms and are currently growing oyster and shiitakes in a humid greenhouse, that we sell at farmers markets (2), a local restaurant, and through a CSA.

Although, we are not fans of the city, we want to homestead in the country. We want to build our own cob homes and start a food forest and grow all the food for the animals we keep. Be sustainable by creating real wealth (abundance). In the city, you can't do anything without jumping through legal hoops and paying hundreds of dollars for each one.

Our lease is up in June and we've been throwing around a lot of ideas on what to do that will get us closer to our aspirations. From what I've read, you have a lot of skills I'd like to learn and we have a lot of market gardening and mushroom cultivation experience to offer. We are DIY types and do the best that we can with the resources available. We love unschooling philosophy, and non-violence principles.

If you're interested in having us in the summer, PM of your actual address to get a satellite view of your farm.
Please contact me if you think we'd be an asset to your farm.

In love,
Alisa Esposito

Hello )
My name is Collin and I have always been called to nature. Heck. I have an apt but I only go there to shower for work lol. I spend 96% of my time in the woods or just hiking. Everywhere. I have a lot of construction experience. A lot. I kind of grew up on a farm in Illinois so I have 'some' small farming/green thumb experience. Large amount of landscape experience. A lot of bush craft experience. I have no family left. No kids. Never been married. Seems that the women here don't share as much interest in nature as much as I do lol! So I guess I'm basically married to nature. Saying I have no ties keeping me where I'm at. Period. I am very very very interested ready And willing to devote my entire being to something like this. As in living the way we are meant to live. So again I am very very interested in coming there and by the sweat of my back live right way. The way I want to. The way I've always dreamed and prepped myself about doing. I am ready to stay full on full term to learn new skills and use the ones I have to help. To trade labor for a place to warm myself by the fire. Heck I don't even need housing. I can just stay in a lean-to with my hammock lol!! Not seasonal...but for life )))So if you are interested in having me. A willing soul ready to help and LIVE then contact me Anytime!! bushcraftgoblin@gmail.com.

Thank you )
Collin Nicholast

Also. I've tried to PM numerous times and it keeps giving me error messages. *shrugs*
