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?

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.

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!

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!
Francis Laurel wrote:Hey! 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.
