‘@Canuck What’s your lifestyle like? Indeed the idea of loosing such reliance on the monetary system would do the world and yourself some good. And a healthy way of life will help you and the planet, especially if it could be many’s cup of tea. I am interested in beginning a way of life that involves a plot of land with a stream nearby sufficient to place one or two water wheels to make all the power requirements if possible and  growing much organic produce of all kinds and trading my produce for the weekly food needs one cant get from the garden.. Hopefully some way to earn enough money to pay for wifi too ;) What do you think about this? How do you live that is different to my ideal? How do you get things like milk, butter, meat, bread etc.? Do you earn an income? If so how? How did you get from where you were to where you are now? :)
