My family and I moved here 4 months ago and still haven't met a soul. We came from Ithaca, NY where everyone is nice, kids are LOVED and food is fresh....

My boys are 6.5, 4 and 20 months. We homeschool/unschool(we do have rules and regulate what our kids see and hear). We live in a micro-sized house in town right now, but are turning our backyard into a farm, complete with veggies, fruits and chickens. (anyone want to by 5 peeps next week? we can only have 5 in town but had to order 10).

We are desperate for friends to share the wonderful summer days that are coming. BBQ's, wine, fresh food....we're missing NY terribly.

Hello Tanya,

I live in Benton City, just outside of Tri-Cities. I have 3 kids: 2 girls ages 10 and 7 and 1 boy almost 3 years old. We are kind of isolated out in the country and could really use some more friends. We home school as well, though we no longer unschool, though we still support others who unschool. Also, we have a small farm. We raise goats for milk, chickens and ducks for eggs and sometimes we grow a garden, when we have the time. I realize you already ordered chicks, but there is going to be a chick day at Basin feed in Kennewick on the 10th of April. You can go and purchase as few birds as you want, as long as you get there early enough. Anyway, please pm me if you want to get together.

Hello Tanya! No need for feeling lonesome any more! There is actually quite a large, supportive group of attachment parents in the Tri-Cities on this page:

It takes a little while to get approved for membership due to safety concerns, but once you are in, it is a VERY great place to meet up with folks like you who homeschool, garden, and much more. Lots of super-crunchy parents, and lots of chewy-granola-bar parents as well. Come join us - we'd love to have you!

Hi,I am not in tri-cities. I live in walla walla,so far I am having a really hard time finding like minded family's in our area.

My hubby and I have three boys ages 7,3 and four months. We home school,eat a clean veggie diet and grow an organic garden in our back yard.

We will be getting chicks soon!

If you want to chat just send me a message :)
