I'm glad you are restarting a forum again, Gabriel. Thank you for your hard work for this!
I'm Meg from Upper Michigan. Been homesteading for 25 yrs... mother of 10, in contemplation of the most perfect future world for my little ones, the family homestead, in community, answered all issues. Now my little ones are quite grown up, but we still do this together, creating beautiful and productive spaces of love. Not too much in the way of community, yet, though we are growing. We often do Workaway/WWOOF to connect with others and share experiences.
Nice to be back with you!
