    I am a young farmer developing a Large-Scale Permaculture project with the goal of scalable closed loop food sustainability.
    This will be a hybrid system which borrows from traditional and modern farming practices. It has been a dream of mine to experiment with alternative agricultural practices in hopes of finding a sustainable medium that serves both a large group of people while leaving the natural environment balanced and untouched.

    Ultimately providing a true sense of freedom from the turmoil of modern society while also working on solutions to offer major cities to move away from grey, lifeless, concrete jungles while maintaining a high population efficiency. (look up SOLAR PUNK for visuals)

    I am looking for volunteers to assist in the early stages of development with the possibility of moving into paid positions in the near future.
