sigh, I had this wonderful post ready to send about the Farm and the 'puter bumps me off!!
Marymom, thank you for providing the website.
Living here is beautiful. We have lived in a community before ocming here, so that gave us a bit of experience, which helped w/ the transition. My 1st 2 trimesters sucked; mainly b/c I was not ready to become a mom (desired to be kid free) and so working thru that was a trip. We moved here the last tri and what utter BLISS! THe folks here are sooo into kids and pregnancy. They gave me so much energy, love, good vibes and hugs that lifted me up.
We find that we have a lot in common. One member remarked that we reminded them of the Haight-Ashbury '60s.
It is so relaxing to live here. No 'keeping up w/ the Jones', no serious material centered living. Of course, we have our political shtick, but that is everywhere. What it boils down to is that love IS. It overcomes dramas, political shtick, and the like. You disagree, but you still hug.
Over 60% of the land is still undeveloped forests or grassland. There are areas that are protected for wildlife. We do have a deer overpopulation, thus there is a tick overpopulation. And very high garden fences.
Peaceful. We do not go into town very much. We work here, shop at the Farm store and play here, too.
We love it here. We tell folks that our dd brought us here. She wanted to be born here and we are staying to raise her here.
Any more ques? pm me.
Much love and B*B*
