My name is Jessica, 21. My fiance Casey, 32 and I have two small children, Lakota, 3 and David, 2. We have been researching cob and straw bale building for about a year now. We currently live in Southeast Missouri, but are relocating to the Knoxville/Harriman, TN area in March, when our current lease is over (or hopefully sooner). We believe in equality, peace and harmony with nature. Being able to live in a coumunity where everyone helps one another. Natural medicines, excluding Caseys medicine because he has a serious condition that we have not yet found a natural way to go about. Our children are not yet school age, but we have been schooling them on our own and would love to continue the path of homeschooling with other children in the community. We are new to this, with Casey growing up in the heart of Omaha, but with me in the country, but we can't wait to begin the journey back to Simplicity.
We are interested in a a community that will be tight nit, one that will always be there for one another. We would really like our home to be made of cob/straw bale. We are open to many ideas about the all around building of the community and such, but would prefer to be off the grid, at least with solar power. We believe in providing our own food, shelter, power, and water sources in the community. Homeschooling is very important. Our children need to learn how to live off the land, thrive in nature, and not how to grow in debt with a 9-5 job and a home full of chemicals.
