I am looking to join a community next spring. I am going down a new path in life and would really like to get out of the hustle of "normal" American life.
I am a hard working 30 year old man interested in learning anything about living off the land, natural building, and animal care. I don't have experience but I bring an excitement to learn and I take great pride in my work and ability to learn. I am willing to do just about anything and I would love the opportunity to join and build a community my children can learn and grow in.
Please let me if you have any information on communities who are family friendly and willing to take a complete novice.
I'm used to the Colorado sun and would like to try to find a place in Colorado if possible. I've never lived east of here and do not have any experience with humidity. I've lived in as and at 9000 feet in the Rocky Mountains so temp anywhere wouldn't be an issue.
My kids will be 6 and three by this time next year and I would have them part time. Another reason living in Colorado would be beneficial.
Have you looked on ic.org? There seem to be many there. Twelve tribes comes to mind. I'm at dancing bones (nh)... If it wasn't so far I'd say "come on up." I would hate for you to be this far from your kids, though.
