This is a 20-acre, off-the-grid permaculture homestead that I have been working on since 2002. I have a diverse food forest of experimental perennial foods, much that I have started from seed and grafted onto. The long leaf pine area that I have started planting when I first got the property is now an ideal area to pitch a tent or hammock. I have been working on native ground cover restoration in much these areas and have some rare plants establishing. There are some awesome big daddy live oak trees that are likely over 200 years old....great for climbing or camping under. We have some structures on the FInca that in the past I hosted WWOOFrs...one is a trailer with beds and a screened in front porch. Another is a palm thatched chickee by the pond. Bugs aren't bad in the summer compared to other places, but winter months are nearly bug free. I am trying to maintain some island diversity on the finca with critters such as bluebirds, quail, turkey, deer, a rare otter/bear, various cool snakes, reintroduced eastern fence lizards and many a skink (broadhead, 5 lined, brown), 6-lined racerunner, a ton of frogs and butterflys...lots of owls (Barred, eastern screech, horned). In certain areas there are things that'll get ya if you are off trail (blackberries, cactus, smilax etc), but just stay on the trails or main areas and you'll be fine. If there is abundance of food such as blueberries, citrus, chestnuts, plums, fig, then you can have ya some to share (it takes many years to establish a food forest but its coming along from much trial and error). I have random instruments out at the FInca and if you like to drum or jam on the guitar, this is a great place for that. Hope you can stay.

Literally such a cool place! Plenty to do and see with a great community-like culture. You'll get to stay in the RV or, if you choose, the screened in porch. You'll see from the photos how cool it is here!

Go stay with Mycol and hope he has friends with him when you do. Mycol is one of the most educated and friendliest folks I've ever met. From the preparation of a communal dinner to the moonlight plant walk (used to gather leaves and roots for tea) to hours talking by the fire, my experience was amazing. His little oasis is just what I needed to disconnect for awhile.
