I’m AJ – 26/m in central NH. To be frank, I’ve got lofty goals – to some day soon start an intentional, off-grid homesteading community that would eventually become completely self-sustaining.
I’m currently renting on 10 acres, learning and refining skills that will be helpful in the future like permaculture, gardening, foraging, herbal medicine, fermenting, canning, brewing, etc. My partner is handy with small engines, and is improving construction and carpentry/woodworking skills. While our current spot is great for the time being, there’s only so much time and effort to be put into land you don’t own.
We’re down-to-earth, grounded people who believe in social justice, equality of all people regardless of what labels society may assign them, sustainability, protecting the environment from any more damage, and living life to the fullest on our own terms.
We envision a community where cooperation and collaboration are a way of life, both experience and burden is shared, meaningful relationships and connections are forged, and most (if not everything) needed is found or made within the group on the land.
We’re looking for other like-minded people with similar goals to get to know and hopefully one day work together with to make a homesteading community a reality!
