[before_listing id=406 images= youtube=null] Going Off-Grid…currently a once thriving tobacco farm that we’re renovating (slowly) in need of help in the gardens and with the animals in exchange for a place to live and some food…a going commune…but am done with those under 25 who come and then do little if anything…need Doers not dreamers and talkers…beautiful area among the amish farms of Virginia’s southern Piedmont between Richmond and Raleigh…have a large beautiful but as yet unfinished cabin…a sharecropper’s shack…a pop-up trailer…and an old house used mainly for storage…John (GoldMiningGuy) is renovating a shorty school bus as living acommodations…sandra the farm owner offering a place to live and some food in exchange for 15 solid hours in the gardens helping with specialty crops that she has a buyer for…just not the help to get it done this year….and some help feeding and watering Sicilian Donkeys and chickens and Penny the rescue horse. Going off-grid but still has phone and internet and limited electricity…an RVer with a smaller rig would be welcome. Prefer nobody under 25 as they all drift off to the city lights and don’t get it when it comes time to get up early and work in the gardens for a couple hours a day! She also has little side businesses on eBay and etsy and flea market selling. [landbuddy_listing id=406 youtube=null]

    Good Day. I am Janelle. I am 52 years old. I’ve had a really rough few years. More then you know, not looking for a pity party. Just a place where I fit in. I love work. Outdoors, indoors. Fur people. I enjoy gardening. Taking care if animals and being outside.I’m a loner, not by choice. I’m just so awake that I stay away from fake people. Anyway….. Have a BEAUTIFUL DAY.

    I am A 46 year old male that has done carpentry work for the last 25 years, and I just had it with the way things are in the world and am looking to find the a place that I can have real friends. Ones that care about me and my abilities, not how much money I have and what I can do for them with said money. I love doing my job, I love building and remodeling anything, I love to get dirty and be tired at the end of the day, after a good day’s work. All my joy comes from being able to stand back at the end of the day and say, I did that. And all my friends helped. Please let me know more about what it is you’re doing, and what kind of people you are. I’m from central PA. so I am not far from you, maybe a 6 hour drive. I can’t wait for a response. Thanks.

    I’m 23, so I suppose I’m younger than you’d prefer. However, I’ve been through a lot in my life and am seeking a new start away from the chaos of societal expectations for high achievement. I’m an experienced outdoors woman and dedicate myself to any task set before me that I perceive to be of value. I am open minded, accepting, and committed. I do not trust money and success, because they cannot be depended upon for happiness. That is why I’m searching out a simpler way to live. I value creativity and free thinking, and am excellent at finding creative solutions to problems. I have success in every job I’ve ever had but I struggle to find joy and meaning in most areas of life that are the focus of people around me. I seek freedom. I seek simplicity. I seek acceptance. I seek myself.
