Comment: GO.

(See in situ)


GO.

The Universe is giving you a second chance, don't blow it again.
How do you want to LIVE? Chasing FRNs? Or feeding yourself and your family, being a part of your community? You say it is a "bad neighborhood." Offer to teach about gardening, give a 1/4 acre to a "community garden." see what you think of your neighbors after a couple weeks working together toward the benefit of all.
Sounds like you have a dream, run with it. The only thing I would suggest is an aquaponics system - in desert climates, the water conservation is critical. For outdoor gardens, learn about permaculture water conservation methods, especially Hugelkulture.
Good luck!
