Living without money has not been difficult but the transition periods can be tricky. When starting out in a new place there is the need to plan – where and how will I access food, what vegies can I get growing quickly, what will my water source be……
I am currently planning my move to a new place. There will be a short stint in a tent so I can get a feel for the place and my friend (who has invited me to stay in the backyard), can get a feel for me and what it will be like having me living in the yard.
After a period of a week or two, if we are both satisfied, I will move a small ‘wagon’ (a kind of tiny house) into the yard and set up for a longer stay.
The idea is to create a mutually beneficial little hub of activity. I will help with growing food, keeping the yard tidy, perhaps help out with my friend’s kids if needed and just be around for other odd jobs. I will have a comfortable place to live where I can grow food and hang out with people who are of a similar persuasion.
My rudimentary planning currently looks like this:
This is the beginning of the next part of my moneyless adventure. I know it’s going to be fun. It’s an experiment in living the moneyless lifestyle in town, while also having the space to grow lots of food. We’ll see how it goes…….
