[before_listing id=216 images= youtube=null] I am presently living in Montreal, and am looking to move off grid as soon as I finish school. I chose the Timmins area because it has the largest land parcels for a decent price in Canada. I am studying to be a natural health practitioner; and am slowly putting money aside to buy a remote wilderness property within 45-60mins of an urban center or highway to allow the sale of farm produce and to hire myself out as a Doula. It is now 2010 and I am hoping to have everything in order to allow for a land purchase in 2013; and hopefully living there full time by 2015. I would be interested in hearing from others like myself, especially because I am a lone soldier in this dream of mine and most men give me strange looks when I tell them I want to farm with horses (because I used to train pleasure horse) and that I love goats and found milking them as a child soothing. I’d be interested in moving off grid with a group of individuals, so contact me (email@example.com). I also want to make the place as close to self-sufficient as possible; meaning hay, fodder, meat, dairy, eggs, veggies, fruits, grains, sugar (sugar beets!), herbs, nuts, spirits, ect. I realize some stuff has to be bought like baking soda, nutmeg, shoes, mattress (unless stuffing your own turns you on, of course!) also clothing needs to be bought or at least the fabric and patterns so you can sew it yourself. Anyhow, its a huge idea and its one I want to become a reality, trouble is I’m mechanically retarded and I know next to nothing about building.[landbuddy_listing id=216 youtube=null]
