I've been a member since the first of the year and like the idea of a system to connect like minded folks. However I've not found much of value here.

I don't have time to send individual messages to each and every member located within 100 miles of Indianapolis, so I hope this post actually is read and if the content resonates with a kindred soul, please respond.

Time is short, we do not have the luxury of living in our own, locked down houses, we must connect.

That's enough of a rant for now. Let's see what happens.

Beyond growing food in our urban backyard, my wife and I are developing a piece of property in southern Indiana.

I am a founding board member of the Lost River Community Co-op and was part of a vibrant group that recognizes the value of local food production for food security for everyone.

We have dear friends across the road that believe one cannot farm without the help of the neighbors. We feel an obligation to share talents and resources with our neighbors. In that vein we have access to a pond and are working out details to run a cow or two on their pasture along with a pig and chickens.

Would you care to engage in conversation or simply ask questions?

I missed several of your posts, so I'll respond as succinctly as possible.

This site is cumbersome even for a technically competent fellow. Please bear with my multiple posts to address your points.

all good brother.
I hope this conversation resolutes in both of us learning something new.

The land is five acres, with access to 40 or so. The pond is small at a third of an acre, but deep and spring fed. I'm planning some hugelkultur beds to fill in some ravines and make use of the massive amounts of brush. This land was clear cut 40 years ago and allowed to grow whatever showed up. We've spent the past ten years clearing unwanted trees, brush and building huge brush piles in strategic locations. I'll go check out your hugelkultur group and look forward to learning more.

Good stuff Sir. Yeah Hugelkultur is a fun and simple, yet profoundly powerful activity for earth-healing.

Where do I find you huglekultur conversation. I share your desire for us to both learning and building community even though we are hundreds of miles apart
