We’re 22 and 18, with a lot of varying interests and skills to offer. It’s really a passion that started with a desire to live more naturally. I want to learn how to make soap and body products, to live off the land, and to rely on natural resources in my every day life. Our dream is to build a self sufficient home and raise a family.
Christian has a background in carpentry and has worked with wiring. He’s a hard, eager worker with quick hands and a quick mind. I have no particular background in the area, but I pick up things extremely quickly, I’m passionate and can pull my weight when it comes to work.
We’re both young and don’t have any resources, which is our primary concern. Knowing how I want to live my life and raise my family, it’s hard for me to think of wasting ten years at a dead-end job just to save money to live this dream. I’d be ready to head out to the backyard and start hoeing right now if I could!
Our biggest desire is to learn more about the community, and gain insight and suggestions on what path to take to reach our goal. We’re very open minded people, and don’t judge anyone. We’re not particularly religious, but are interested in pagan/wiccan/buddhist mentalities.
As I said, our eventual goal is to have a home and family, to be self-sufficient. I intend to homeschool and make all the household items, and he wants to work with his hands.
