Hello, For the last decade, I have homesteaded on my organic farm between Toronto & Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I am interested in talking to serious preppers who would be interested in seasonal or permanent intentional community here.
Would you rather bug out? There is a special opportunity to try out your skills. Shoot me an email.
Farm is a paradise of meadows, 15 acres hardwood forest. Soil is excellent. I raise cattle, sheep, poultry. I log/ farm with draft animals. Permaculture gardens, homestead orchard and food forest. I have a huge farm kitchen well-designed for food preservation, cheese, fermentation etc.
Currently, I have established community working for a few hours, months and taking home organic foods. However, I wish to expand that to folks living on farm during the full growing season in 2022 who are interested in mutually growing/ putting down food for ourselves and fostering the preparedness of this farm. This is the next step toward establishing a small, permanent intentional community. I believe the best aspect of preparation is a strong, united community sharing skills, knowledge, assets and abilities.
The right candidates share similar values, good self-awareness/ social skills and able to do the physical work of food production and enjoy working together towards self-sufficiency. Must demonstrate history of prepping skills. They would need to supply their sleeping accommodation such as a yurt, a 10′ X 10′ cabin or a shepherd’s hut. (I’d help build.) Tents have successfully been used as well. Main house is central community area.
Particularly interested in folks with carpentry skills, Schutzhund/ Ring/IPO training, hunting, community building. Skills can be traded for food, land use.
Consider community preppers: I come with references from folks who have stayed at the farm for 3-6 months at a time. Most return and stay in touch. Best wishes for your own prepping.
