i am looking for people who want to learn about self sufficiency, people who practise a vegi lifestyle, people who want to live the lifestyle, people who want to make the world a better place and help others by promoting this lifestyle,

working on making some videos about self sufficiency, growing food etc.
also i would like to set up an erasmus eu funded project teaching ecologically sound self sufficiency, i will need help with this as i am a farmer and not so academical inclined

i am a straight forward person that you can talk to, i am use to living happily and peacefully with people, semi retired spending my time at various gardens farms and sometimes communities, an experienced gardener/farmer builder etc engaged voluntarily by choice in gardening farming bhakti yoga/Hare Krishna mantra meditation, eco building, healthy lifestyles, vegetarian vegan diet, Permaculture, self sufficiency, natural farming-fukuoka style, sustainability, regenerative agriculture, etc.

(the Accomodation is Not suitable for Couples.)

(Minimum Age 21.)

please ask me questions if you don't understand anything !

check out the photos and think what way we are going individuality and as a society, are we growing our own food, or going towards begging and slavery? i have seen both and am willing to help people learn how to grow food, i like sharing my skills teaching people how to do things and learning from others if you want to help me - or me to help you learn, let me know -

Additional information.
The concept the word work and money as we have come to now it - I find confusing to love respect and other shared human exchanges, therefore i offer people a sharing of life experiences for mutual benefit.
we all benefit from being proactive doing things to support ourselves and the others, its how the experience is lived and the consciousness its lived in that counts, that is i believe the difference between work money and a pleasurable progressive positive existence,

this experience i am offering entails living as a family, friends, extended family or a small community, a village, a group a tribe etc in the modern world, i prefer this lifestyle and offer to share my life knowledge and experience with others while myself benefiting from others knowledge and experience.

Area
England - UK

Type of help.
4 to 5 hours a day 5 days a week in the garden or house.

the project and myself will need help mainly in the eco/organic gardens, also for getting set up to teach course's on sustainable and regenerative agriculture, communities, lifestyles, gardening, food storage herb collection, jam making etc. acquiring grants is something i require help with this as i am not academic, also i am planning to rebuild a shed, a conservatory in the garden, solar panels, diy maintenance etc, there's always various things to do, i like sharing my skills teaching people how to do things and learning from others. there’s other things to do if you cant do these things,

FOOD; i repeat this about food a few times because some people don't read the profile properly mainly due to language difference's and they get disappointed so to avoid that i repeat a few times - Here its Vegan or Vegetarian cooked or raw food diet only,
(not meat fish or eggs) i see this way of life as essential for environmental sustainability, mental emotional and spiritual balance.

IMPORTANT health and safety issues regarding FOOD PREPARATION in a Communal setting, food should be prepared to a basic clean healthy standard suitable for others to eat,
i have a modern kitchen with juicer blender etc for raw food preps,

please ask me if you need any more information.

i offer this exchange to suitable people, please ask me questions or ask for more photos if your not shore about anything - i am happy to answer your questions -

thanks
