Crafty, queer-ish, artist, incurable optimist, goofy, kinky, large (like a fat Amazon! haha), unschooling, INFP, farmer, non-binary femme-ish (usually), traditional witch, foodie, cuddly, ggg, assertive submissive, disabled, autistic relationship anarchist. My teenager says I'm "chaotic good"... I think that's a D&D reference? *grin* Describes me well nonetheless.
What I’m doing with my life:
Learning how to live sustainably, and raising a teen and a child to be respectful, responsible, and knowledgeable while still knowing how to question everything.
I’m really good at knitting, growing food, making out, sculpture, painting, patience, compassion, nomadic existence, cooking, parenting, frugality, planning, finding delicious things to eat, and snuggling.
I like rock, alt-rock, indie folk, punk folk. Sci-fi, fantasy, and farming books are usually on my night stand.
Six things I could never do without:
-land to grow food on
-the ability to travel
-google calendar; my phone is my brain.
On a typical Friday night I am:
-reading a bedtime story to my grrls
-drinking gin and tonics with my bff around the fire
-texting with friends
-watching a movie
-attending a potluck
-working on some other type of creative endeavour
-watching "Finding Simon" on YouTube
You sound like a very cool person, living an intentional life, trying not to exploit others. High five :)
I am not the person you're looking for, but reading your post and seeing that there are others out there with similar value sets provided me with a little bit of light in a dark world. For me, feminism and permaculture are both strategies to create healthier communities, and you have clearly done some thinking on both.
Let us tend to ourselves like we tend to our gardens, and create healthy and beautiful people.
Just discovered this site. I left a reply to your tiny house oil cloth query from a year ago as well, not realizing at first that your post was dated and your house might be done now. If so, how did it turn out? How is everything? I'd love to talk. You can find me on Facebook.
Thanks for educating me on things of love and gender.
I am also a cuddly INFP farmer. But I'm lean.
I'm a doer and a thinker. I like big ideas and talking about them and working on actions that contribute meaningfully to moving in directions I believe in, toward health and happiness for all.
But I work a lot and haven't gotten much practice talking. Can I practice on you?
I meet all the qualifications on your list for who should message you!
I give really good hugs and massage. I like to cook, especially together, and I'm good at it.
I play traditional Zimbabwean music, dijeridoo, jawharp, a little guitar. I like to sing and harmonize. I throatsing.
I'm passionate about humans connecting with Nature and supporting indigenous rights, learning from and helping indigenous people and indigenous ecological communities.
When I was a child, I first wanted to be a monkey in the jungle in Africa, then I wanted to be an Indian, then a farmer, then an environmentalist. As I discovered that I was a white industrial human, I lowered and adapted my goal to what I thought might be possible. Now I am reversing that. I got an ecological agriculture degree. I've worked on farms. I am a farmer. I'm on a path of learning to embody the indigenous spirit of the land where I live as much as I can.
I love climbing trees.
I love to dance.
I love to wrestle.
I love acrobatics, juggling...
I was on a rowing team in high school.
I learned to fly small planes in high school, on a scholarship, and got a private pilot license. I haven't flown in years because it's expensive, noisy, and polluting. But I love being up there!
I love psychodrama (a form of interactive role-playing psychotherapy verging on shamanic journey)
I finally went on a vision quest last year.
I'm 36. I was born 2-15-1981 in Seattle.
I was sick a lot as a child. At age 16, my little sister and I moved with Mom to Orcas Island. (I now live on Lopez Island.) I joined the rowing team and was cured by the pure air, good water and local food, deer meat, work to do, exercise, and relationships of a small rural community.
I was breastfed until I was 4. My three children were all born peacefully at home.
I want to live in a community on land where we meet our needs together from the land while having fun, involving all ages, enhancing the biological community we're part of.
I require touch and affection.
I'm a man - he/him.
At 17 I taught myself to build a sweatlodge and created a ceremony for myself and my friends. I have a large burn scar from a hot rock shard.
At 26, shortly before the birth of my son, at a sweat, I asked my friends to rub me all over with stinging nettles as I rolled in the nettle patch, as a strengthening ritual.
What else? I don't know. Let's talk.
how hard would it be to immigrate to Canada from the USA? I find what I read about you vary interesting and would love to get to know you and your farm better. I am looking to go off grid and have what you have right now.

Whoops!! Goodness, I haven’t monitored this thread in quite some time!!
Some things that have changed: I have a boyfriend, locally, I’ve been dating for just over a year and a half (still a relationship anarchist though ). I’ve started HRT (testosterone) to transition. I’m transmasculine. My various physical disabilities have been keeping me from the farm life, and I’m now living in the city. I’m only growing food on my balcony these days.
