[before_listing images= youtube=null] I always wanted to be a farmer; since I was a kid, I found challenging and facinating living with the minimum; My dad used to take us all to his parents farm in Tecate BC Mex. They only had electricity. I learned to used the outside toilet and bathe in a metal tub. Well, in short, I wish I could be self-sufficient and move to the country, with no eletricity or other commodities. [landbuddy_listing youtube=null]

    Hey, if you are still in southern California and looking to live more sustainably, I’m looking to start an urban farm. Let me know if you are interested in joining. cpbrous@gmail.com

    Living self-sufficiently is not ‘farming’: it’s being a peasant:

    ‘1.a. A person who lives in the country and works on the land, esp. as a smallholder or a labourer; (chiefly Sociol.) a member of an agricultural class dependent on subsistence farming.’ [OED]
