About Me

This blog used to be about using SharePoint as a business user.  All SharePoint posts have been moved to our Lets Collaborate News & Blogs.  Learn more about my professional life here.

My life-long dream is to own a farm – an off-the-grid / organic / permaculture / intentional community and lodge surrounded by animals. That dream came very close this year, but I was not just able to afford it; so plan B has had to kick in.  I am now embarking on an urban farming adventure to prepare myself for the farm one day while I build up the capital I am going to need to afford it.

This blog will document the entire process from living in the city (Johannesburg, South Africa), running an IT business, living in a one bedroom townhouse with no garden for almost a decade – to getting a huge house and garden with a plan to turn it into an off grid home and permaculture food forest, complete with chickens – to transitioning one day to the real farm of my dreams.

My hope is that it will inspire you to live your own dreams, as well as help you avoid the pitfalls I am sure to experience in the next few years.

On your marks, get set, grow!

New Home Sweet Home
