Teaching people to build stuff out of recycled materials how to live off of the land and make money while doing it. Everything is FREE.

First, let me take the time to thank you for taking the time to read this. Secondly I would like to explain a little of what I'm trying to raise money for. I'm going to be posting adds on craigslist and other websites to find people who want to be a part of this and learn how to use recycled materials to build homes, sheds, barns etc. Building furniture from wood gathered from the property. How to plant different types of crops (herbs, fruits, and veggies). How to can and preserve them. How to build a bee hive and extract honey. There will be a lot more to be learned by myself and others. This property will always be free to stay at or live at. We encourage people to come stay here. We just ask that you help out if your older, or got injured and cant do any lifting we have small stuff like gather eggs from the chicken boxes. we aren’t asking for manual labor just stuff you can do in an hour in the morning and an hour at the end of the day. We are going to work with inner city kids and teens to teach them that corn does come in a can, but its grown then put into that can or that milk comes from a cow. and maybe teach them a few things and try to open peoples eyes to living a little healthier, and living anywhere from a little GREEN to off the GRID. I am a experienced contractor, and have volunteered 6 years of my life to farming to learn to grow and harvest crops. I love the out doors and want to do everything that I can to help reduce my impact on Mother Nature. I'm trying to raise the money because I don't have enough money on my own. I will own the property but as long as I own it no one will ever have to pay to live there or camp there to learn...Please feel free to email me at johnbuysscrap@yahoo.com.. Again thank you for taking the time to read this. Please don't hesitate to email me with any questions.
