While I was in South Florida my new friend Rawbert got a hold of me and asked if I would like to visit him at his property he just recently purchased. Of course I said yes, and we started to make some plans. I some questions to get an idea about the property and he told me he had 5 cleared acres of agriculture zoned land, looking for some help and to connect with like minded people. By now most people will know I am that kind of guy.
When I showed up to his location I got there before he did because he had to make a mulch run. While I pulled up I realized this guy didn’t have a fully cleared lot. It was…but he already started planting over 60 different fruit trees and vegetables…in the two months he has been there! I was shocked thinking I was showing up to an empty lot. Once he got there we shook hands and got a feel for one another since we met based off social networking and we both realized we were who we said we were. We took a mini tour before the camera came out and explaining his past, the present and his goals he has for the future. I have to say keep an eye out for this guy! You will see future videos of his place either through his channel once he starts, or when people like me will come and visit him. I don’t want to go into great detail of his plans as I am not too sure what he wants to make public yet, but like I mentioned he has some interesting positive goals.
If you are interested in meeting up with Rawbert and helping him out you can contact me or him once his blog and forum is up and running if anyone wants to follow his journey the site is www.fruitsteading.com . He is located in Naples, FL and if you are looking to be a WWOOFer without being in the program like myself he is probably more than willing to take in help to get his dreams moving.
