Hi everyone,

We recently moved to Huntsville AL area due to a job relocation. In Florida we had a yard where we grew almost all of our fruits and vegetables, and even had two young nut trees. We enjoy the hobby of pursuing self-sustainable living, but previously we were the only ones in our neighborhood. So before we purchase a house here, we wanted to hear from the locals, if anyone is aware of a type of community or farmstead where a group of like minded people have purchased some acreage through a trust, or at least an area where people have gardens and chickens, etc. We just can’t buy into the suburban neighborhood thing but also don’t want to live rural by ourselves where we couldn’t defend what we’ve worked so hard to establish. Any thoughts?

Our approach to “prepping” is living in such a way to where you are prepared for disaster but also if things just go bad, but not disasterous, that you at least have your land you pay so dearly for, give you food in return.

I appreciate any input.
