looking for farmable land in NC

Tue, 11/26/2013 - 14:27
Hi,

I'm a farmer currently living in Rhode Island. I'm grew up in NC and would be interested in coming back to NC.
I'm a total greenhorn but have been getting really excited lately about soil amendments
and being a good steward to the land. If your interested I could send you pictures of the farm
that I have out here.

I'm interested in a three to five year lease.
Ideally their would be water, a greenhouse/i could build one, well draining soil, and relatively flat.

If you know of anything feel free to email me at hendall.loeffler@gmail.com

Homesteading in Asheville Area?

Sun, 11/24/2013 - 12:43
I plan to visit the Asheville area for the first time in the spring because it seems like it might be an ideal area for homesteading (permaculture style) in my retirement. I haven't been able to find much from realtors about farm sales or the appropriateness of the surrounding area for permaculture/homesteading. Since I am 62, a single female, and new to homesteading, it seems I should avoid raw land and start with buying a small farm. I'd also ideally like to buy 3-5 acres - including pastures and woods to be left natural to support local wildlife. I have the following questions and concerns:

1. Are there currently areas that are good for homesteading/permaculture that are also within 20 minutes of Asheville? From my research, it seemed Madison County had a lot of interesting homesteads, but a realtor told me I should think only of Buncombe County. I also found alarming info online about pollution from power plants in the Black Mtn area.
2. A realtor told me that 80% of the land is uninhabitable, that it's a tight market, and people are coming in and buying large amounts of land. Is that a scare tactic? It would be ideal if I could just visit and get perspective and buy when I retire at 66.
3. I chose Asheville because I understand there are a lot of liberal people who are concerned about the environment and because it is a warm climate in mountains. If it's true that homesteading properties are getting bought out in the Asheville area, are there other locations with similar characteristics that I should also think of that might have better opportunities to buy homesteads (in 4 years)?

Thanks so much for your advice or recommendations!

Any Land For Sale in NC? Ways to locate land for sale?

Sun, 11/10/2013 - 20:37
I have been looking for a place to purchase, at least 3 acres, but have been having a really hard time finding land. I have spent what must be days online looking for empty land, I had a realtor that claimed to specialize in farm land, I can't find what I'm looking for.

What I'm looking for:
-empty land at least 3 acre
-within 45 minute drive of a decent sized city in NC (Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, Winston etc)
-no HOA, no covenants, no restrictions
-Not in a neighborhood
-Has some flat areas
-Ability to have power and high speed internet to site
-Water on site(spring stream river or pond)
-not land locked, able to access
-not next to a highway, power lines, sewage plant or the like

Honestly I can't find anything listed that isn't either really bad land or hundreds of acres for millions of dollars.

Spring Permaculture Design Certificate Course http://www.solidgroundfarm.com/permaculture-design/spring-pdc/
Weekends March 16-May 4, 2014
Contact westonlombard@gmail.com for more info.

Finally, the best education you never had. Designed by practitioners for practitioners, each weekend involves hands-on learning, visits to various example sites, and multiple expert regional presenters. Learn to design, implement, and manage the backyard, homestead, small farm, and lifestyle of your dreams, as we explore the intricacy and interconnection of the natural world.

In addition to an in-depth exploration of various topics, each weekend course ties the material to permaculture practice and theory as we explore the standard 72-hour PDC material. Enroll in the individual courses you like or take the whole series to earn your Permaculture Design Certificate from Solid Ground Farm.

THEORY AND PRINCIPLES OF PERMACULTURE
March 15 and 16, 2014
Learn the ethical and theoretical basis of permaculture. Explore the principles and practices that lead to an integrated, low-maintenance, regenerative homestead and lifestyle, as we explore the patterns that connect us all. Teachers TBA

FOREST GARDEN DESIGN
March 22 and 23, 2014
Observing and familiarizing ourselves with native ecosystems and plant communities, we learn to use nature as a model for designing our own “forests”, creating integrated systems that produce year-round supplies of food, animal forage, fuel, fiber, and medicinals. Led by Weston Lombard and Kurt Belser with guest presenters Pete Woyar and Dr. Frank Porter.

BUILDING FERTILITY
April 5 and 6, 2014
The foundation of prosperity is rich, fertile soil. Join us as we explore strategies to nourish and perpetually improve a living soil. Topics covered include the soil food web, desertification, vermiculture, thermophilic compost, cover crops, mulch, bio-char, and compost teas. Led by Marilyn McHugh and Chris Kennedy of the Hummingbird Project and Kathy Jacobson of the Broadwell Hill Learning Center.

INTEGRATIVE LIVESTOCK MANAGEMENT
April 12 and 13, 2014
Learn the important roles that animals play in a sustainable agriculture system. Visit traditional and not so traditional farms to learn everything livestock from housing options and animal “tractors”, to foraging and nutrient cycling, rotational grazing, and integration with a permaculture system. With expert help, design the livestock system that suites your needs. Led by Sasha Sigetic from Integration Acres. Includes site visits and special guests JB and Charlene King of King Family Farm, Neil Perin of Arcadian Acres, Blackhaven Farm, and more.

NATURAL BUILDING BASICS
April 26 and 27, 2014
Join us for a tour of the owner built natural homes of Athens, Ohio as we experience firsthand the range of local materials and endless ingenuity of the area. Through numerous site visits and the building of a wood fired cob oven, we will learn the basics of small home design.

Led by Weston Lombard of SGF and Chris Fox of Fox Natural Construction, includes visits to natural builders homes and discussion with Wes Thompson, Piper Avolokita, and more.


SOCIAL PERMACULTURE AND CLOSED LOOP SYSTEMS
May 3 and 4, 2014

This weekend we tie it all together with a big picture look at permaculture in action. Beginning with a panel discussion of “strategies for an alternative nation” we learn to apply permacuture in our own lives and communities. With our toolboxes now complete we will apply our considerable knowledge to designing functional permaculture systems integrating all aspects of permacultre design. Assisted by local practitioners and designers final projects will be completed and presented to the public. (This weekend is only available to those taking the full course).

Permaculture in TN Valley?

Thu, 10/10/2013 - 10:17
Wondering if I'm alone in the TN Valley? I live in Meigs County near the Hiwassee River. Wondering if any folks nearby would be interested in swapping cuttings or seedlings.

Any advice for a newbie to permaculture for this area?

Thanks in advance!

Permaculture certification at Asheville's Urban Farm School

Fri, 10/04/2013 - 11:44
Registration is now open for Asheville, NC's Urban Farm School 2014! Early bird deadline ends Nov. 1. Includes a PDC April 12-26 (can be taken separately from the full program) + business of agriculture course + farm field trips and classes. http://ashevillage.org/urban-farm-school/

Each month will include skill-building in the following topic areas: Gardening, Herbalism & Wild Edibles, Perennial Agriculture, Food Processing, Natural Building, and Water. Monthly learning tracks will include: Homesteading, Food Justice, Entrepreneurship, and Education.



Testimonial from 2013 student: “I came to the Urban Farm School so I could start my own farm project. I’m leaving with the knowledge on how to do that, plus so much more. I will never look at things the same way again, from how we grow food, to transportation, to society as a whole. Every aspect of my life has been touched by my time here. The UFS has given me what I need to move forward with my dreams, plus the most important thing, community!” ~ Ollie, UFS 2013

Director Stacey Murphy is the founder of BK Farmyards, a decentralized urban farming network based in Brooklyn. She is an architect and engineer and has spent the last two years managing high-yield micro-farms and teaching sustainable agriculture to teens. Her architecture experience has led to theorizing on how best to build a local and just food system.
