Shane here from Ann Arbor, Michigan. Just wanted to introduce myself to the community. I'm 28, partnered with 2 kids (2 yrs, 4 wks), living in cohousing (renting). Got my PDC in late 2015 with Midwest Permaculture, but haven't really practiced. Every time I try to start a garden I get caught in the "we're not going to be here for very long, so shouldn't invest to much in this land/place" trap.
Currently working outside the home at a decent-paying tech job (software/robotics). Contemplating next steps towards a situation better suited to homesteading. Hurdles include money to buy land, as I'm quite debt averse. But also the fear of being isolated, and just not really knowing what we want.
Thanks for building such a great place to talk about this stuff. I look forward to getting to know you.
