Greetings! Michigan Native, searching for a tribe.
I love nature, I’m a fish, the sun the moon and the stars are some of my dearest friends, I like to plant things and watch them grow. I live in big old farm house which is situated on 9 acres in SE/mid-Michigan. I want to creat community here. I strive for serenity, and happiness. I am a lover of all things. Mama of two, newly un-married.
I earned a Master's degree in Historic Preservation, during which my academics focused on Historical Foodways, Agriculture, and Domestic Life.
Chelsea, Michigan

I am working on selling my house in Allen Park right now.  The plan is to buy a large parcel for permaculture in Michigan to start a homestead.  I have quite a few plans on paper about energy creation and conservation, as well as some ideas as to how the land can pay for itself.

Where are you in your planning process?  What kind of tribe do you foresee?  Have you looked on intentional communities website?  Things like shared meals, or how much work someone contributes.  How will bills be divided?

Marc-



Everything fell apart. I am no longer in this position at all...

Hi all. I don’t know how to remove posts, but everything has changed since I originally wrote this post nearly 3 years ago, it seems? Or however long ago it was- because I’ll be turning 35. I am happy to chat, but as of today 1/23/2020, I will be taking highest and best offers on my property and moving away from here.

Brandy McNabb wrote:Bri, hello my name is Brandy. Family calls me Aunt B. I first wanted to say thank you! I have been single for 14 years now and it has been by choice. My kids have grown now and are moving on with their adulthood lives. I decided this morning to get on here and find like minded people that want to live off grid and seriously build relationships.  I felt very awkward and reluctant until I read your post. You are super fun, and have a very light filled bubbly personality. I adore that. I need a human and soul like you in my life, even if just as penpals. It's almost as if you were writing about myself in so many parts of your post. I know we have many things in common and probably a few we that we don't. But, that's the fun in learning new things and trying new experiences, right?!! I really dont want to put everything on this forum. If you are interested in adding a genuine, loving and kind friend to your little circle I would be honored to talk and get to know one another.

Hey Brandy,
Lots has changed since I wrote this, but I would be happy to be pen pals. Shoot me an email!

The way you edit is to log in ( must be a Permie member) then press edit and then the button that says submit.   We'd love to live on your farm but we are old and grey and homeless and carless! These days without a picture I.d. you can't even get on a bus to go interstate. My wife lost hers and we've had a hard time to replace it.But Good Luck and God's Blessings in finding another partner!



For some reason the posts from ages ago don’t offer that option.

Thank you for the kind words
Greetings!  Like a number of other folks, I can't edit my previous posts. So I wanted to write a new one since time has flown on by and things have changed somewhat. I'm still seeking community, and even more so, someone to share my farm with!

I’m Bri- free thinking, earth worshiping, lover of all things. I share my home with an amazing housemate and our raggamuffin assemblage of animals and kiddos. We are looking for community. A tribe, people with whom to be vulnerable, intentional, productive, communicative, loving. I want friends who connect on an emotional, intellectual, maybe even spiritual level.
We live in one big 'ol farmhouse on 9 pristine acres in northern SE. Michigan with insane amounts of potential.  We have a room we would love to fill with another amazing human person who has a passion and drive to help make this place magical!



I would love to start a conversation with anyone who has an interest in a home/farm mate situation like this!
Ack! I'm 33. definitely not 32 any more
Hey everyone! Like a number of other folks, I can't edit my previous posts. So I wanted to write a new one since time has flown on by and things have changed somewhat. I'm still seeking community, and even more so, someone to share my farm with!


First, the living situation: One big 'ol farmhouse on 9 pristine acres in northern SE. Michigan with insane amounts of potential. The home is currently occupied by me, my amazing housemate and our raggamuffin assemblage of animals and kiddos. We have a room we would love to fill with another amazing human person.


Next, who I am:  I’m Bri, a 33 (oh wow! it let me edit!) year old free thinking, earth worshiping, lover of all things. I should also add that I am unconventionally partnered to someone who lives a distance from here, and always will (ask questions if you're confused) and a mother of 2 small humans.  I am a firm believer in love without boundaries. I wouldn’t call myself polyamorous, but I can tell you after (amicably) ending a marriage and relationship of 14 years, it has become apparent that no one person can be someone else’s everything.

My housemate and I are looking for community. A tribe, people with whom to be vulnerable, intentional, productive, communicative, loving. I want friends who connect on an emotional, intellectual, maybe even spiritual level.
I seek the perfection in imperfection. For me, that comes with knowing we are all responsible for our own actions and reactions.

I am in the process of reigniting my Clinical Massage and bodywork practice of 11 years, honing in on my artistic talents, finding ways to make this home and land work for me, and scaling down my hours at my "grown up" job. While I do love that job, I realized after going through the motions of earning a graduate degree and starting on a conventional career path I'm not cut out for the rat race and am ready to find a sustainable life utilizing the abundance that is right in front of my face.

My passions include spending as much time outdoors as possible, hiking, camping, swimming in lakes, gardening and just generally being productive.

Perhaps I sound like someone you would enjoy connecting with. Perhaps I sound like someone who you would enjoy being housemates with. Either way, I would love to start a conversation.

My name is Erik, and I currently live just south of Flint (but will likely be moving soon). Over the past few months since I've moved back from Oregon, I've just started to get my feet wet with the sustainability world. Now I'm growing plants in the kitchen, mushrooms in the basement and composting in the garage! I'm looking for more people around the state who are interested in meeting up, attending classes and maybe even want some help on their farm (I love to work outdoors). Also, anyone interested / part of the local tribes and anti-pipeline stuff I'd love to hear more from. I'm about to start an apprenticeship readiness program for plumbing so in the meantime I have quite a bit of free time and would love to make and meet some new friends.

Awesome thread to read about and even see a few of the projects ya'll have been working on! It looks like satisfying work!




There is a heartbeat! And probably a lot more going on in the permies world than is apparent on this forum!  https://thecooperativeatdawnfarm.org/ Is a cool project that some friends of mine are involved in.

I have some ideas for my own property..etc.  Would love to chat! bcierpilowski@gmail.com

I'm excited to see your post.  I wanted to mention I have friends who are interested in permaculture in both Lansing and Ann Arbor, who've been excited to coordinate across the urban-rural divide in order to scale up their work.  So please send me a message if you'd be interested in getting in touch with others in your area.



Hey! always interested!
