Ex MoD Civil Servant on a Category one Naval Project, does that count?

As a Civil Servant I learned to delegate, not take responsibilty, go over schedule and go over budget.

But none of the above were my fault...lol

Re: Gathering a list of peoples skills/ experience/ offerings
I am a creative, experimental, hands-on type of person.
I have many survival and living skills.
I am an artist (painter, sculptor), a tool-user (prefer hand tools), skilled in working with wood, concrete and some metals. I don't weld, don't do electricity and don't understand motors.
I sew, knit, darn, can make clothing and patterns from scratch, and new clothes from old clothes.
I am a natural engineer, can figure out how to do things with unusual materials. In that way, I am a creative problem-solver. I can make almost anything I need out of whatever materials are at hand.
I work with plants and would like to work with animals.
I do small-scale gardening and food preservation and would like to learn more about growing and using medicinal herbs.
I'm very sensitive to Earth energies, with a deep appreciation of the complex inter-relationships of all life on this planet, and the living planet itself.
I very much admire the Amish.
I type (only in an emergency), am good at organizing systems and seeing the patterns and flow of systems.
I would love to be part of a sustainable community of creative problem solvers, for whom the word "can't" doesn't exist.

Re: Gathering a list of peoples skills/ experience/ offerings
I am currently working as an administrative assistant. I am quite skilled at organizing, scheduling, communicating, writing, problem-solving, research, if it needs doing, let's get it done!! And no stranger to hard work either.

I also worked for an after-hours radiology reading service for a year, very cutting-edge, totally online via the internet... that job taught me how to multitask under pressure, when someone's life hangs in the balance, with a surgeon standing by waiting for a reading, you learn very quickly what is and isn't important in life.

I guess what I'm saying is... there isn't much that rattles me and I'm ready to get busy!! :gathering:

Re: Gathering a list of peoples skills/ experience/ offerings
We are a small group in North Eastern Thailand. We have land, we have water and we have rice and animals. We are continually being offered the use of more land, often with buildings and agricultural equipment. We have development projects for alternative and renewable energy, solar thermal turbines (it's hot here!), alternative pharmaceuticals and m-state material extraction.

We have a very great potential in a safe area many hundreds of kilometres from any ocean. We wish to develop this potential and need more people to join us in order to do so.

We need the support of people with building skills, farming and gardening skills, animal husbandry (slaughtering!) skills, healers, teachers, electrical, electronic and engineering skills and others who wish to join us

Hi Vorian,

You are welcome to come and see what we have here. You won't see much in Udon yet as we are preparing our land to start building. You will be able to get a feel for the place though and what we are about. Like I said we need more folks.

Re: Gathering a list of peoples skills/ experience/ offerings
In central Montana...Crooked Post Ranch

We are setting up a livestock operation on our ranch, meat rabbit, chicken (eggs & pasture broilers), sheep....I have dual purpose Targhee sheep which are both meat & fine fleece (lace weight white wool). We are working to specialize in raising bum lambs for several larger producers in our area who do not have as much time to attend to them. That means locker lambs available in June through July for sale...any unsold lambs go to commercial buyers at out of state auctions. I can help anyone who crochets, knits, weaves with raw fleeces at producer costs with pre-arrangement (shearing in our area occurs in MARCH)...buy direct rather than from large national retail shops! Some of us have fleeces still in storage, others unload the unwanted fleeces on Commercial Wool Pools by end of April if not contacted by interested end users. We have a growing series of young 4-H producers with specialty sheep in Central Montana such as Icelandic Crosses, Shetlands, Blue Leicester Crosses, etc for those wanting colored fleeces. Our Montana local small ranch produce is going to waste or to low paying big business bulk buyers, folks, because we need to connect direct with the consumers and most ranchers don't know how or have the time! I am willing to help connect people with our local ranchers and farmers.


Construction & Remodel
Hunting - Local Hunt Guiding
Cyber Research & Networking
Sustainable Living - Earth Stewardship approach
Home Schooling - We have a growing library both physical books & digital books (the Robinson Curriculum from the Oregon Institute of Science & Medicine has an excellent set of 22 plus CD's full of Books a complete 12 year Elementary/High School Education which you can mail order from them for about $200 which includes a whole lot of extras...yell at me if you want to know more or go look them up online at their website)
Networking with others in our local area


3 to 4 Cord quantity approx of Hardwood (Russian Olive Acceptable) for farming purposes, it must have the bark on it!

Any scrap fencing wire, metal, wood (all types), & cage wire

Accepting at this time any unwanted sheep

Accepting at this time any unwanted meat type rabbits

Looking for any leftover or unneeded grass seed, clover seed, alfalfa seed

Looking for local 1 to 3 year old straw.

Wanted local or near local partner for producing market garden 2009, I have land, water, tending/stewardship, and you have open pollinated (non-hybrid) seed.

If you want pigeon (quab) and have live traps...I have barn rafters full of the pests. They need to go so I can store winter produce in my upper barn level undisturbed.

Extra: I have two unstarted horses at prime age 7 - 10 yrs old in need of a new home(s)...one mare & 1 gelding. $100 each.

Our Area:
Cascade MT & down Canyon of us to Hardy Creek, Dearborn, Craig, & Wolf Creek there are many opportunities for small landholders to set up shop if you are willing to build. Building regulations are very flexible in our area and many of the hill homesteads have opted for alternative methods/structures like strawbale & off grid. We have the Missouri River running through our area...and would love to see more families like-minded moving in. People in our area are hardy, practical, fiercely independent and resourceful. Caution, the climate in our area gets to -40/-35 with deep snow in winter at times and always lots of wind, so it is not for the faint of heart but is very rewarding for those who are able to tackle such issues.

All Visitors Welcome.:welcomeani:
