Green living in Houston? Is that possible?? - Page 3

post #41 of 49
I haven't read through the whole thread, but I saw you ask for CSA recommendations and I also saw you mention that you might be in Spring...
We have been CSA members of Home Sweet Farm for over a year now, and we LOVE them!! They have a weekly drop-off in Spring (in Bender's Landing). The fall season starts Nov. 2nd; they might have spots open still (if you are even planning to be in Houston by then). Here is their website: http://www.homesweetfarm.com/

wow! what a great thread!!! It's been awhile since I've seen a "tribe" so actively respond to someone who is relocating to an area (I know because we've had to look at several different areas this year). Such great resources everyone has posted and it seems there is a super active community of families which is great to see :)

 

So I have a couple of questions to piggyback on OP:

1) How is the unschooling community there? It looks like some of the groups online have dried up :(

 

2) DH may or may not have a job offer in Lake Charles LA which would have him working there three and a half days a week and off the rest. Lake Charles isn't really my preferred place to relocate to so we've talked about maybe him commuting once a week back and forth so he can be home during his days off - are we nuts? Are there places on the east side of Houston that are liveable and would cut down on his commute time if he did that? 

 

Hoping for some replies!

1.  LOTS of unschoolers.  Many just run with some of the relaxed homeschooling groups.  There is an unschooling co-op too.

 

2. East side of Houston is pretty yuck.  Dh grew up over there and was quite happy to move away  :lol

sapphos,

Alegna is right about the east side of Houston!  We live in Kingwood (NE Houston) and absolutely LOVE it! We moved here from the Heights a couple of years ago and although it is much different than living in the city, it suits us well right now.  We can jump on 90 pretty easily and make it to Lake Charles in 2-2.5 hours.  I know quite a few unschoolers around here! I don't know of any unschooling specific groups in our area, but there are a couple of well-established secular homeschooling groups.

thanks for the replies. The job  has come through and dh is heading to Lake Charles this weekend. If we end up looking at relocation I'm not totally sure if I can do the small town thing so we really will be considering Houston as a possibility but it's going to depend upon so many things.

Started the homeschool group via Meetup - Houston Holistic Learners, come and join!  I have to laugh - I joined a yahoo Secular group to be notified that "Pagans are in the group" seriously??? To each as own, I don't care what your "thing" is, as long as you are a great person with a good heart, come purple, tall, small, whatever.... no judgement from me or the group, not allowed here.  Will be leaving that group shortly, not into forwarnings - LOL....

 

Coming at the end of the week and looking forward to creating that "community" to create a village once again.

Was the group with that warning a Houston group?  If so, and it's the one I suspect, there's a back story  lol  PM me if you'd like and I'll fill you in.

Yep no worries....seriously someone want to post they need "healing energy" "a prayer" " or whatever anyone needs in a time of tragedy or illness they everyone do their "thing" and send it their way.  It's just not a big deal to me - you need a prayer, I am sending healing energy and hope for recovery -the best I can do:).  I am into free speech but insult throwing is unwelcome:) I tend to say shit or crap - do I think I need to ask for forgiveness?No - it is apart of my language- After 30 odd years  - I get to be me:)

 

On the road in Little Rock tonight - if anyone is pending members give me until next week, no internet set up yet.  Happy Thanksgiving!

There were originally no warnings on the group- then a Christian flipped out on a pagan original member- hence the warning  ;)
