Seeking my soulmate

Hi, my names Ashton and after having no luck with dating sites I have decided to post an ad on Diggers and Dreamers. I am a genuine guy looking for a nice man ideally between 18-28 to have a serious relationship with. My interests are the outdoors- camping, gardening, fishing, and walking. I love nature and would love to go foraging for food and maybe live off grid one day too. I also enjoy playing tennis, gaming, and art. I am 23, have short dark hair, 5ft 10, average build with blue eyes. I am usually shy when I first meet people but I am also fun and have a good sense of humour once I get to know people. If you are still interested after reading my ad then I hope to hear from you soon.x

Seeking first edition FEMALE book to start exclusive book club!

You can’t judge a book by its cover. How many times have we all heard that saying before? Alas the soul book I seek doesn’t have an ISBN, which makes the finding a tad more difficult. The female book I’m looking for might not even have obligatory hippified cover, yet her ethos and characteristics are a tie-dyed hotchpotch of hippie philosophies that make her uniqueness an instant bestseller! The blurb on my male book cover would describe me as a condensed version of the Encyclopaedia Britannica in a freethinking format! My interests range from wild edible flora, herbal medicine right through to basically everything under the sun. So feel free to get in touch if you are interested in forming a unique book club comprised of just two members who want to read the oracle of each other's soul! Addendum: I reside in the UK and have many skills related to living an alternative lifestyle and hold aspirations to be an innovator. My innermost wish is to use the light within my soul to form a beacon that others can follow helping to guide them onto their own path! Contact details: wild.edible.flora@gmail.com

Looking to POOL RESOURCES to establish project in the tropics – seeking partners with similar vision.

Clearly there are many of us who have had enough of this system and would like to find a real, practical and sustainable alternative. I am looking for like-minded (free-thinking, but non-esoteric) people to buy some land and plant a food forest, develop permaculture and related projects. I am flexible on the location, but I will explain my personal preferences below. I have considered places like Eastern Europe as it can be very cheap to buy a farmhouse with lots of land. I have also considered southern Europe, which could certainly be a good option. It would be viable to purchase a house and land in the southern European countries for a very reasonable price. But, southern Europe is still not tropical, and although the winters are short and mild compared to northern Europe it still gets cold/chilly in winters and warm clothes and heating would be required. (Even the Canary Islands cannot be compared to the true tropics, although I would be willing to consider this as an option if somebody gave me a serious proposal). Personally I have a strong preference for tropical countries where there is a full 12-month growing season. (I have also found that truly tropical weather is very health giving. In my own case, it has helped me to block the advancement of arthritis and even reverse it somewhat. From personal experience, I have learned that chronic “diseases” such as arthritis are viewed primarily as a source of ongoing profits for the disease industry – and they have no intention of ever cutting-off the source of their lucrative careers and their juicy profits). Additionally, I have focused my search on tropical countries which permit foreigners to reside permanently and purchase land in our own name – with no ownership restrictions imposed on foreigners. I have researched the matter somewhat already, but I am open to other opinions and ideas. Essentially I am looking to make a shared investment – although the details are open to discussion. Other people who seek to initiate such projects/communities have adopted a vulture capitalist (purely profit-seeking) approach – by buying large tracts of land (more than 25 hectares) and then dividing it and reselling the plots separately. Although this can be very profitable I am seeking to partner with like-minded people rather than make a profit from the venture. So, the idea would be to purchase a large area of land together, and then jointly enjoy the benefits of a MUCH CHEAPER PRICE PER HECTARE. If land is purchased in large plots (before subdividing it) the price is considerably cheaper – often far less than USD10k per hectare. I have seen large farms for sale where the price per hectare can be USD5k or even less. Obviously, various factors need to be considered: Location/ accessibility by road, access to water, altitude, and soil type, etc. There are various ways we could proceed: The land could be purchased by a trust or a corporation, or we could purchase it outright as a shared investment/venture. If you prefer, we could draw up binding contracts to immediately apply to divide the land into separately owned plots after the purchase. These are just details which would need to be discussed and ironed out. What is really important here is our intention and to be able to achieve the objective of finding an AFFORDABLE path to pursue an alternative way of living. One option could be to negotiate jointly with the seller, stating that we seek to purchase some tracts of land individually. In this case, it may be possible that the seller is willing to legally divide the land before the sale/purchase but still give us a good price per hectare. In this scenario we would each have our own legally titled farms on neighbouring plots. Another advantage is that we could have as much individual autonomy or cooperation as we choose to have. Once the land is purchased there are many things we can do – many possibilities to create a food- forest and also pursue some related activities to generate an ongoing income to purchase materials, etc. To avoid any conflicts I expect that we would need to negotiate the matter carefully, and do it all through lawyers so that we all feel 100% safe and sure – so that we can fully focus on the real shared objective. I don’t have any love for lawyers, as they are part of the endemic corruption I am seeking to escape from. However, I suspect that in this matter lawyers would be a necessary evil. I am simply seeking peace and harmony, so conflictive or “complicated” people with excessive unresolved “issues” would not be suitable for this venture. Also, I am not rich at all, but I am now in a position to make a “small” investment and it would be FAR CHEAPER to purchase a larger tract of land together with a few others who share the same idea. If you have a similar vision of escaping this imposed slavery, then please feel free to contact me. All the best.

Creative writer looking for kindness in Scotland (or Northumberland)

I am a 26yo writer and music graduate looking for somewhere quiet to finish my novel in Scotland or near Berwick, Northumberland. I have very little money but lots of skills (particularly IT, admin, bid-writing, some gardening and herbalism, a little housekeeping, childcare, and music). I have a strong background living and working with communities, which is what I have been doing for the last two years, but now I would like to find a place where I can focus on completing my novel. This would suit a philanthropist/patron or individual/community/family or organisation looking for a 'writer in residence' that is interested in supporting a creative artist. I have exceedingly simple needs: just basic food, internet, and human kindness. Would prefer to be sponsored, or work a small number of hours weekly (no more than 20 hours max.) to off-set my costs. Must be a safe environment; host must have no 'illusions' about how I intend to work and live. Please contact lapsang.leaf (at) gmail.com Thank you!

Wanted: Energetic, happy, mature, calm, nurturing, respectful, reliable, possibly spiritual lady/s 40+ with integrity to help set up small, caring, supportive community :-)

I am a 55 year old lady going through a challenging menopause with no real family who yearns to live in a small, loving, supportive "chosen family" type of community of up to maybe 4 - 6 ladies/persons. I have my own large home with a smallish garden in a popular seaside town on the south coast of England. I am gradually setting my house up to live off grid and as sustainably as possible. I am planning on turning my garden into growing as much clean, organic food as it will produce, hopefully, using modern vertical and urban gardening techniques. I am not a gardener but I am aware of aquaponics and hydroponics and hope to find someone who will help me eventually incorporate these into the mix. My other main project is to build a small cabin at the bottom of the garden, perhaps in cob, to gain experience of building a small rocket mass heater and stove with a composting toilet and solar panels etc. I believe that getting the right people together and building a strong unit together is the vital foundation and once we have our core unit right, I would consider selling up and moving to a place with a little more land available with space for more cabins and a camper van or two. (I also want to acquire a van to convert to a camper that I can tour in with my chosen family eventually). I have reached time in my life for change and having spent my life around men, I now need to feel the mutual support of some women too but of the few close friends I have already, sadly none are able to follow my dream with me either through illness, family commitments or no particular desire. So, initially, I am looking for reliable, respectful, calm, warm, friendly, energetic lady/s with a sense of humour, integrity and desires to live in a self sufficient, permaculture type way and as green and frugal as possible. I believe with Brexit happening and Trump in power, the world is an even less stable place. Also, there are no guarantees any more for future pensions and so the best defence is as much independence as possible. I am also very disillusioned with modern living and feel the unnatural stresses of the consumer society. If you like the sound of this, and have any permaculture, gardening, building or cooking skills or are willing to pitch in and turn your hand to anything and be part of a cohesive unit, please do get in touch. All messages will be answered. Or if you have any advice or suggestions, I am keen to listen as I have never done anything like this before nor have I personally known anyone who has. PS - For information only, I don't smoke or drink and am celibate. I do enjoy some forms of music and play the drums but am respectful of both my own peace and quiet and that of those around me.

Looking for a like minded "au pair"

Hi there, We're a little big family of 6, Kim (dutch), Fred (French) and our four kids of 8,6,3 and 10 months old. We're living in the Ariège, south of France, in a gorgeous spot. We are looking for a kind of like minded "au pair", who is familiar with or interested in attachment/natural/unconditional parenting, to come and stay with us for a longer period of time to help with our 4 children. We are homeschooling/unschooling, and would like you also to help with setting up the organic vegetable garden and some help in the house! Some keywords to describe us and things we care for : free birthing, co-sleeping, nappy-free, extended breastfeeding, non-violent communication, permaculture, biodynamic gardening, fermentation, homemade, wool, knitting, woodcarving, photography, no smoking/drugs/alcohol, barefoot, simple living, community, sacred plant medicine... We are living in the Ariège, in the foothills of the Pyrénées, in a rented house settled in 47ha of organically grown land. Amazing views on the mountains ! A very rich social network with many alternative people living around us. Our main job is to take care of these young kids so help with them would be very much appreciated, especially if you have some special skills or talents that they can learn from. We are looking for a "big brother" or a "big sister", to be part of our family for some time. It can get a bit hectic, chaotic with all these kids, but also very funny ! We have a big bedroom to offer (which is also used as a play room), in our house, so it is a bit challenging to have a lot of privacy ! Luckily the kids go to bed pretty early so at least evenings are calm ! We are pretty unconventional in our lifestyle, not sending the kids to school, not working, mainly trying to lead a simple life, as freely as we can. We eat good, local organic food, try to ban plastic from the house, use only eco friendly products, limit the exposure to EMR. Well, if you feel like joining our little crazy family for some time, please get in touch ! Fred & Co

Help us develop a thriving cottage industry on 14 acres of land.

We are a middling 50's couple who moved from London last August to set up a smallholding in North Devon close to Ilfracombe. We have 14 acres of parkland, woodland and pasture which we are currently creating a smallholding on. We are looking for a couple or an individual who want to work on the land and have their own ideas and plans, as well as helping us on the land would like to pool resources in other endeavours and look at developing a thriving cottage industry which would benefit us all. We currently have 3 pigs that we are raising for their meat and chickens are next on the list; so we would welcome anyone looking looking to raise their own animals here too. There are opportunities here for people to use their existing skills and learn others along the way. We are keen to find like minded practical, down to earth people to share our future plans with as we develop and grow. If you want to discuss this further, please get in touch

Farm life in Northern Poland

I am Polish but was born in Britain and have lived in Zambia and Canada. 20 years ago my partner and I bought a 30 hectare run down farm on the edge of a small village in the beautiful forested Kashubia area of northern Poland with the intention of living as self-sufficiently and sustainably as possible while also integrating with the local community and possibly finding others to share the farm with us. However it soon became clear that this way of life would not suit my partner and he became a full time English teacher with much of his life spent in a town 25 kilometers away although he still harvests his firewood from the farm's own pine forest. I on the other hand, with the help of many wonderful WWOOFers have continued to develop a large organic vegetable garden and keep sheep (for wool), horses (for farm/forest work and pleasure) and chickens. Milk, cheese and butter come from a neighbour's farm. I am also a hand weaver and spend the long winter evenings weaving shawls, scarves etc. My other great interest is alternative theatre and I work with a group of young people from this area, researching local history and creating plays which tell the stories we discover. I also help with local music and theatre festivals. The farm is rich in wildlife, birds and plants with lots of different habitats, marshland, ponds and birch woods. Other people in the village include builders, a mechanic, teachers and forestry workers. Three years ago I moved out of the farmhouse into a small cottage nearby and I live there alone - no TV, fridge, washing machine etc but good internet, radio and time to sit on the porch and observe birds and animals and the changing seasons. I am 65 years old and still have many plans and dreams for what I would like to do here - there is so much potential but even with WWOOFer help I find it difficult to do much more than keep myself in home grown food (being vegetarian means I supply about 75% of what I eat and give away/sell some too). I am looking for someone, preferably two people - friends or a couple, who would like to come here on a woofer basis but with the option of staying longer and becoming more involved in developing some land based activities. You would need to be practical and independent, able to live in a fairly isolated place (the village is quite far from any shops or pubs, with poor public transport connections!) and not mind living very simply - the only accommodation I can offer is a well insulated wooden cabin with a wood stove and a butane gas cooker but no electricity or running water. A solar installation to generate electricity might be possible to install at the cabin but I don't want to do this until I meet someone who really undestands these systems. I am happy to share my cottage bathroom (wood fired hot running water!) as well as occasional vegetarian meals and electricity-lit evenings. If you decided to stay longer than a few weeks you would need to have or find a source of your own income for anything you need other than what we can produce here. This place would suit either very practical persons wanting the space to grow or make things or writers/musicians/artists needing a quiet place to work in exchange for some help on the farm. Parking your own caravan / mobile home and connecting to the grid would also be an option.

Good Earthy Folk Seek Likewise For Neighbours?

Is there anyone out there who are thinking of relocating to the welsh countryside and while looking for their forever home, find themselves limited by budget? We would briefly like to make folk aware of a lovely 150 year old character welsh cottage, which is currently for sale. The cottage is located in Powys. The property is a 1 bed mid terrace and is in good general condition but could do with perhaps a little modernisation. Too small for a family and would idealy suit a single person or couple. The property has a log burner and off road parking, it also has a front garden only. The area itself is scenically stunning and borders Shropshire, it also has good logistics to main roads and access to motorways further beyond.The house is on the market at offers around £51000! Please be advised that we are not the sellers and have no association with them whatsoever. We consider ourselves to be good earth folk, we merely seek to try and find Likewise folk to have as neighbours! Someone who embraces a permaculture ethos would be ideal, Vegan and/or tree huggers would be an absolute bonus! Regardless though. we feel the main thing is just to be kind genuine folk. There is a good feel and positive energy to this ancient Celtic village/area. We hope to see you soon? Genuine enquiry's only. Please get in touch for further information including photo's.
