What is your ideal living situation in regards to self-sufficiency/sustainability?

Growing everything needed for me, my family (which I need to start as soon as I find the right woman) and my community. Sustainability from Apiculture, year round Aquaponics, seasonal soil based plants, chickens, and goats. With a surplus to either open a farm market, organic restaurant or a B&B, depending on “her” goals. Energy from solar PV, solar thermal, thermal mass, mechanical wind. Off the grid? Nope, I want to be paid for the excess energy produced.

What are your main areas of interest?

Capability of being off the grid but staying connected to sell back the surplus.

What, if any, are your areas of expertise that you could help others learn?

Planning, organizing and brainstorming, there's a hurricane in there!

What is your main reason for joining this group?

I'm an eco-geek.


My plan: Develop an organic, subsistent and sustainable permaculture mini-farm to live a modern homesteading lifestyle, w/ a year round greenhouse, intermeshing aquaculture, vermiculture, solar, wind/water power not to deplete natural resources.

What Jimm is saying about this Meetup Group
