Want to learn self-sufficiency? He'd like to teach.

COUNTRYSIDE: The days of teaching others how to homestead and live off the land are in short supply, as Tayna M. said in a previous letter. For years I've been trying to find someone willing to learn self-sufficiency. Today people are totally reliant on the government's infrastructure. Who wants to learn about hunting, fishing, raising livestock, butchering, gardening, canning, smoking, dehydrating, plant/frequency remedies, shelter or even power generation?

Our government said terrorists are threatening to poison our food, water and air supply. The supermarket foods are tainted with pesticides, herbicides, irradiated, genetically modified and are chemically grown with no mineral value. Why do we have to take vitamins and cleanse our bodies?

The truth is many people want organic food and are willing to pay the extra cost. With just a few acres a profit can be had. I've farmed, raised livestock, worked on and with those computers in the city and hope to impart my experiences of 48 years.

Everyone has moved to the cities, there are tons of good land to cultivate in every state. Abandoned farmhouses/homesteads are down many rural roads. Nature's springs, creeks, ponds and caves give free water and protection.

I am looking for people interested in starting a co-operative/homestead operation or already have one set up. I have the knowledge, all I need now is the place and help. I can be reached by calling 301-788-8820 or write me.
