    #help so I’m homeless and trying to find a place to we’re I could go so I could get started on homesteading.. I do work.. were should I start? It would be so much easier to have a nice wood place to be permanent for work. We’re I’m not always trying to worry about we’re to rest my head that night. Any advice?

      I’m sorry you’re dealing with this. I was in a similar spot not that long ago while I was waiting out the disability claim process.
      I ended up getting a camper and, through networking in the local permaculture group and asking friends, I found a woman who wanted to grow her pasture beef farm but didn’t have the time. We worked out a work-trade deal and I was able to live there in my camper, paying just $100 for utilities and internet. Whatever projects we decided on, the profits would be split equally. I got a lot of valuable experience and she got to expand her operations. It was a win-win. After about 8 months, a market grower invited me to come live there to help her cousins with their first year industrial hemp grow. I learned a lot there, too, and all the while I kept looking for the right property to open up for me. I just put an offer on place last week and we are in negotiations.
      There are also websites where farms can list that they’re looking for help. Typically, they provide a room and meals in exchange for your labor, but a lot of them pay, too.
      I hope this helps. Good luck to you.
