My name is Mel and I live in London (hopefully not for too much longer). My ambition in the next few years is to buy land in the UK and start an animal sanctuary that can also be a place for school children to visit and learn more about animals, where our food comes from, etc. This has always been my dream and I’m finally in the position to make this happen but I don’t want to do this alone because where’s the fun in that?
So who would probably like to join me?
– Someone who, like me, shares a life-long dream of living in nature surrounded by animals and caring for them.
– Ideally you are also vegan but it’s not a dealbreaker (I much prefer ‘plant based’ than that word anyway!).
– You have sufficient funds to contribute 50/50 to this project.
– You would like to be off-grid as much as possible.
I’m 31, single, no children and work in Finance (luckily I’ve kept my sanity after ten years in London in this profession). I am originally from South Africa where I grew up on a farm and had a pet ostrich (random fact of the day). I have extensive knowledge of growing food and rearing sheep and cows in spite of not putting a lot of this into practice for over a decade! I strongly believe in learning on the job so even if you have no background in going off grid I believe if you have the passion everything else will come naturally (ok maybe with a lot of graft too!).
Anyway before I waffle on for any longer I’d be interested in sparking contact with anyone interested in this project.
To be frank, I am disgusted by the unnecessary suffering in this world and I don’t want to participate AT ALL in such cruel economics. As humans, we have on a whole lost our humanity for other creatures through a disconnect from birth. Hence why I want to return back to nature and make a tiny protest against what I see as psychosis of our species with respect to how we treat animals. Rant over (for now, don’t get me started seriously haha).
