i am living on benefits at creepside crampground in wilson creek, handing my entire shelter allowance, and then some, to slum land owners, who live in america, who utterly ignore my concerns, and who make threats of summary eviction, when i complain.
at fifty my options are running out. i am technically highly competent, am able to repair almost anything. i am also a reasonable gardener, and am good with animals.
instead i am trapped in what is effectively an open prison, surrounded almost entirely by private property, roads, cars and people - most of whom are drunk, most of the time.
this is to beg for relief - if anyone has any idea where i might find a landlord willing to make local use of my shelter allowance, in exchange for enough land upon which i could keep a hive or two, a garden, and in time, hopefully, a few goats, ducks, and perhaps (in my dreams) a donkey or so.
i don't actually need a lot of personal space at any one time, but in order to keep myself, my animals and the land healthy, i would need to be able to move my pens around occasionally (aka joel salatin's 'tractor' designs) and i also - and most importantly - require pedestrian access to crown land.
i'm a student of permaculture, especially sepp holzer's approach, as well as mollison and lawton, et al, and i am also well versed in wood gas production, and the related production of biochar, solar and compost power, methane and humanure production, etc.
at fifty my options are running out, and without space, i am unable to help.
any advice would be appreciated, thank you for listening,
