My name is Darren
I live in what was once a pretty rural neighborhood. A neighborhood struggling with the demands of the era’s homogenization and political stances, I feel symptomatic of this scarcity driven economy. (arent both sides of the coin?)(BTW! We just got a Taco Bell in town! GLORY BE TO ABUNDANCE!)
I have a wonderful wife and one grown child of my own, his better half, and another young adult seeking refuge here that make up my family community.
We live in the neighborhood where I grew up, within walking distance of my father, aunts, and uncles. And a couple of siblings. Quite nice… sometimes, lol
My wife and I are active participants in the animal rescue community.
I have taken on what others find as a quaint hobby farm lifestyle outside of my work-life. (My iteration of a permaculture inspired homestead.)
I have taken on goals here to create self-reliance and regenerative life skills… and integrate our passion for animal rescue and the creative and potentially beneficial aspects in life my children have discovered to “this whole.” Understanding that my efforts could benefit ourselves in the now and the welfare of my children and, with luck, the surrounding community in the future. This is where I have reinvested the surplus of the strange privilege of Union represented wage slavery…
The land I am steward over is a wooded lot cleared enough to build a home and all its required infrastructure. Powerlines, driveway, septic system, and house. In this phase of my life, I was not entertaining permaculture thought… as evidenced by the home I built. However, I was aware of some aspects that happen to be part of good permaculture design. Retrofitting this McMansion may not be too discouraging in the future…
The soils here are sandy loam, we are seasonally flooded, and our well is salty and very low producing. To set out a few opportunities, lol.
My name is Darren, and this is just part of the story, lmao!
