Love living in the Ozark Mountains. Love almost anything to do with the outdoors. I have been a master gardener state and county level. I was performing hundreds of hours of volunteer work a year. Have recently left these groups to free some time for myself, need to build myself a new house and finish what I want to do with the land I have. Love nature. Canoe, hike and hunt, fish, camp and like to travel some, (particurly out west). I do free sustainable gardening seminars around my state and others. I have given presentations at International master gardener show, Bakers Creek, Ozark Folk center and other locations and schools. Love to train and teach others how to grow their own food just using the materials off of their land. Specialty is Heirloom and Traditional vegetables and Herbs. Now the other side of the coin. Work in high tech control systems for industry. Have been a training coordinator for a fortune 500 corporation facility. Work in city so I commute. Worth it to live in the mountains. Love scifi and fantasy. Like psi studies. Been a teacher and sailor in the past .Have a vast array of interest areas. Want to provide and build my own power systems for farm I have. Oh course I grow my own food and herbs and tea. Yes I do canning, dehydration and freezing food for storage for winter. Like permaculture as well. Have a couple of small green houses I play with. Have done some work with kids trying to get them interested in gardening in last few years. I love living in a self sustaining life style, however..LOL…I do enjoy my sat TV and internet…:). If any of this sounds interesting give me a yell. I also enjoy discussing the various beliefs out there-even if I don't agree with all of them. I am honest to the point of it being a fault. I would rather be open and honest and disagree, than to have a misunderstanding about it later. Not hard to get along with although I can be quite out spoken about things I believe in. I am fairly well educated, which makes me realize I really don't know near what I should-so I strive to learn more as I go
Thank you so much for the information on the groups in my area!!! It is nice to know that I am not the only one. I am an over the road truck driver and it is hard for me to get to regular mettings or sometimes even events are hard to get to. It is nice to know that there are people that I can talk to ask questions of and maybe even find a teacher that would be able to work with me and my schedual. LOL Know any one like that?
Ok, I was followiing the Ark thread...led me to U...guess it got lost there...thanks for finding me...let's be friends. U grow teas...really cool. My Uncle just moved to Jasper....How far? I've been in several underground "Cave houses" How far have you gotten? Laurie
