Dreamer

Hi Fellow D & D’s. Would love to start digging as soon as possible and want to co form a community of open (to change, new ways), truthful, and inspired members preferable vegetarian and in the South. I love working, relaxing and thinking outside the maze. I have resources and previous experience of forming a community in which we made decisions by consensus (Seeds to Change inspired). I need solvent and non solvent people to join me or inform me of existing communities with similar aspirations. I live a magical life already but feel it is time to build resilience with others in these strange times. I am not buying the past or present propaganda and wish to meet like minded souls who are not living in this manufactured fear and anger scenario. I believe in separating the wheat from the chaff and not throwing the baby out with the bath water so can work with anyone who is looking to give as much as they take in a positive way. Ideally an arable farm with its own natural non contaminated water and existing accommodation in a location where we could run retreats. Preferably following our own philosophies based on ‘do as you would be done by’, doing no harm and common sense. I believe in the opposite of the end justifies the means which is part of the current day scenario alongside the past orchestrated fear and its resulting generational trauma. I have seen how trauma can be released and personal power retrieved and would love to practice and share this with others. Message me if what I have written resonates with you then I will send you my mobile number for a chat. David

Looking for land to tend and care for

My partner and I are looking for land which we can tend for. We have had this dream for several years gaining experience working on the land in paid positions alongside taking on WWOOFING roles and other volunteer placements to try and make it a reality. My partner, Michael, currently works as a field archaeologist and grows and gardens organically using biodynamic principles. My work is in nutrition and healing. We have limited income for set up costs but can both be flexible with our working days and would not necessarily need to be reliant on the land for income. It would be our intention to use parts of the land for wilding and other parts for growing food to feed the wider community. We are calling in the opportunity to be carers to a piece of land and all beings on it, to tend to it, grow on it and to live on it in a simple way. Feel free to contact us for any further info and details along with contactable references. Thanks for reading, Lizi

Cornwall

Hello, Hubby and I are back living in Cornwall where we both grew up. Currently living in a timber frame building that we’ve put up on a family farm but keeping an eye out for a property to establish a permanent home. I’m working as a baker atm but have twenty years of farming behind me and hubby grew up on a dairy farm and now works at an agricultural merchants. Needless to say our dreams and potential budget are somewhat out of sync being here in west Cornwall competing with second home owners (that’s a whole different winge) so land with the potential to build a carbon neutral or negative home and be as self sufficient as possible is the way we want to go. It’s got to be the best approach for our future and that of the planet. We’d also like to be part of an intentional  community, living independently but working together to be as sustainable as possible. I strongly believe the future needs to be one of retuning to community existence, looking out of each other whilst doing the best for our environment. I feel we’re on the verge of great changes with regards to planning and support for such building and community projects with authorities being pushed to embrace and support more environmentally conscious ways of living. I believe Cornwall County Council are running a community land purchase scheme designed to encourage eco development and I’m looking into this. If there’s anyone else in the area thinking along the same lines and you fancy a chat to bounce some ideas around get in touch. Look forward to making some amazing friends on our journey to a more sustainable life. Xx

Quiet,green refuge wanted!

Does anyone have, or know of,a small cottage,house,bungalow or other dwelling for rent,or as part of a community, on a long term basis? A converted agricultural/industrial outbuilding? A cabin or other structure on a small piece of land, or land with permission, or for rent,or in the large grounds/garden of an individual or community?In an ecovillage,cohousing project or as member of a community perhaps. Large caravan/mobile home? Even a boat with permanent mooring and bankside land/garden! Do you have an unused “granny flat” or garden cabin or suchlike that you would like to let? I could also act as a caretaker or just as someone to be there for security, or a bit of company or to help in emergencies ( I am 69 myself). I am trying to cope with and hopefully recover from some long term health issues and finding it difficult in my present situation (electrosensitivity seems to be part of the reason e.g.wifi or nearby masts so want to be as free from this as possible, at least adjacent to me) A secluded garden or a part of one for own use and some privacy would be wonderful.Maybe could  team up with one or more other folk looking for a  similar situation? Possible purchase of small piece of land or cabin  Peter.

Looking for a better life in Forest of Dean/Cotswolds/Worcs/Anywhere

Hi everyone. We are a fit and hardworking couple  in our 50s looking for a more sustainable lifestyle working with the land and nature. We have lived off grid for several years and on an organic smallholding as well as some experience with small woods. We have moved to a parkhome near Tewkesbury as we were made homeless by the pandemic but we would much rather be working the land  and improving the environment. We have lived in communities  for 30 years and have studied and taught meditation and try to lead a low impact lifestyle. We are looking for somewhere in the above area if possible to be close to friends and family however we have lived in Wales and the Midlands. If you have any suggestions or indeed offers then we would love to hear from you… Thanks for your time and consideration. Nick and Julie Bramble

Long Term help on Farm In West Dorset

Couple (or individual) wanted to help us on our small farm. Various things – mainly growing in the polytunnel and garden and harvesting for little honesty-box shop down in the village. Also help with other things going on like sheep, esp. at lambing time (April), elderflower champagne and cordial making (June), campsite for 6 wks in the summer (Jul & Aug), apple juice making (Oct & Nov). Will possibly be milking some of the sheep by next summer and making cheese. The farm is still being set up really, so things are still developing.  There’s 2 of us living here (aged 56 and 42), with off-spring near-by who pop in and out. There’s lots of other small farmers near by too. And the beach is 2 miles away.  Accommodation- at the time of writing this I am looking for a good sized caravan (at least 4 berth) for you to saty in, but if you have your own living vehicle then even better! We can wire you up with mains and the internet if you wish, and plumb you with water.  The deal might be something along the lines of 2.5 days work (20 hrs) from each part of the couple, in return for living somewhere beautiful, food from the farm (hogget, veg, eggs), water, power, internet. And the opportunity to learn more about small scale mixed agriculture. The garden is no-dig, the pasture is no plough! I’m not certified organic but follow thr principles.  www.littleoakfarwww.littleoakfarmdorset.co.uk If interested /have any questions then please do get in touch. We can chat over the phone,  and I’d suggest you come wwoofing for at least a few days before we each agree to a long stay.   Mary

Home, home on the range....

Hello, I am looking to join or help create a home with loving, playful people whose passion is living close to the land.  Currently, I am based in SE Cornwall, working for a national charity but hoping gradually to rebuild community singing work and sound healing that I was beginning before the pandemic. I have plenty of gardening experience, having worked as a maintenance gardener in a previous life and lived on a 2 acre woodland garden site that required a lot of heavy work. However, I have very limited experience of growing food and would love to learn from and with others. Although I have friends in larger communities here, I think I would probably be happier in a smaller setting . I am a great communicator, community builder and networker but I really like my space and appreciate people who know how to contact stillness in the midst of busyness. I also love listening to music and would need to find a place to sing/practice without bothering people; even better if there’s someone to have the occasional jam with… I am both excited and trepidatious at the possibility of living with people who have a shared vision and goal. I am learning, along with many people at this challenging time, new resilience, which I think requires deep reliance on each other, inner strength, vulnerability and honesty. Plus as much joy as you can stuff into a day. If you can help in any way, even with ideas, I would greatly appreciate it.

cottage to let

I have a small, comfortable one-bedroom cottage, with its own garden, to let in a quiet rural location in Ceredigion. I live at the end of a side-road, on 15 acres of land managed primarily for wildlife. The cottage is next to my house – both are converted farm buildings – with no other neighbours in sight. As I live on my own, and am now in my 70’s, I’m starting to find land, veg garden, house and a horse quite a lot to cope with, and would like a bit of help, but not necessarily from someone living here – that’s negotiable. Whoever is here needs their own transport. Dogs welcome, as long as they don’t threaten my dog (who is large and very good-natured) or my neighbours’ sheep. Cats, I’m afraid, are not so welcome – I’ve been encouraging wildlife on this land for 40 years or so, and it doesn’t seem fair to bring in something who’s likely to be so destructive to birds, small animals, frogs etc. I expect that a not-too-young single woman might fit in best here, but I’m open to many  possibilities. Please ring if you’re interested 01974 298920.     Kath
