Seeking: Compatriots in Permaculture Bliss in Baja Sur, Mexico

We are having such fun already, living at Lumbini Gardens in Baja Sur, Mexico. My love told me yesterday he wants to be here forever, he is just so content.
We live right across the road from world-renowned seed-saving expert, Gabriel Howearth (heard of Seeds of Change seed company? Yeah - he founded that, and more). We are blessed with the opportunity to learn from and work with/for him daily. Also to consult with him on what to plant where and when at Lumbini Gardens so that one day it, too, can be a wildly diverse and overflowingly abundant tropical jungle just like his at Buena Fortuna.
We play, fish, stroll, and relax at the nearby beach almost daily. And star- and moon-gazing? A night doesn't feel complete without cozying up to the fire and languidly peering. Ahhh. Getting to know the wildlife in our midst is another thrill: coyote, fox, vulture, osprey, hare, and roadrunner are our neighbors - as well as los gallos who crow at first light all around La Ribera. :-)
Our only desire (now that the shower is working!)?
Families of friends to live this dream with us day-to-day.
I have been advertising to groups of like-minded folks I know, and inviting practically anyone with a dirty, smiling child and kleen kanteen. ;-) Now I've begun to really get specific with the Universe about our desires. That way it will be easier for her to find us a perfect fit! I've created an ad of sorts and sent it to some large-audienced bloggers who share my ideals. Here it is - does this sound like someone you know? Does it sound like you? Please do drop me a line. :-)
We have just moved from America to Baja Sur, Mexico, to a piece of land we are beginning to cultivate permaculturally.
The property is owned collectively, however we are the only folks of the group actually living here (mostly) full time, and the only ones with children. Our farm, called Lumbini Gardens, is a mile away from the ocean, in an area with very fertile soil and intense sunlight.
We are seeking other families to join us. I know there are folks wanting to do something like this; we just need to connect with them.
We particularly desire families with different-aged children - our daughter is three - who are interested in peace/joy-full-partnership-parenting and un/homeschooling. And of course have an interest in living on the land and practicing permaculture. Our diet is an omnivorous one which emphasizes real, nutrient dense foods with strong WAPF-paleo tendencies. We love making music and dancing, living slowly, playing at the beach and sitting by the fire under the stars.
With an open heart full of confidence in this process, and love -
