:D Phase One: Planning and Research

I am currently living in australia, working as a Registered Nurse with my partner. We will be beginning our savings for a property next year. I am reading through books and websites and youtubes and magazine on everything to do with running a self sufficient organic (or close to it) block.

I am VERY EXCITED about starting this! We have to know what we are doing to ease the teething problems for when we start, So its reading reading reading, and planning.

We are planning to settle in the Hawkes Bay outside Napier/Hastings. It is such a comfort knowing i can ask questions on the forum, with such a helpful team to aid us. You guys are awesum!! and i learn heaps just reading all the posts :)

Hi Ruth, welcome. Your educate-yourself first approach is an excellent one! Too many people blunder into problems because they don't know what they don't know! With land and animals, there's always something new to learn, even when you think you've possibly learnt most of it. :)

Welcome to the site Ruth! The folks on here are great, and very knowledgeable.

Are you an Aussie planning to desert :D or a Kiwi planning to return?

(I'm an Aussie, but shhhh, don't tell anyone.)

Tomorrow is the day I will stop procrastinating.

Haha, your secrets safe with me, im a kiwi, planning to return to my home turf. Thanks for the warm welcomes :) Yea i really want to be able to prevent what can go wrong, and know how to give my future animals the happiest life (before they enter my freezer).
Hopefully i'll make some like-minded friends on return to NZ :)
