Looking for a site in Norfolk UK

We’re heading back to UK for a few years and don’t want to do the mortgage/rent thing. So, we’re looking for a friendly landowner to accomodate a 30ft converted horsebox. Solar and wind-gen, just need somewhere discreet and quiet to park-up, a view would be a bonus! We’ll be working as teachers so anywhere there’re schools will do, family and friends in Norfolk, North Yorkshire, South Lincolnshire and Kendal so near any of those would be grand, regards, phil.

West Midlander looking to go off-grid, any land available to rent for tent/van?
by DANNYGBOYO on MARCH 22, 2010 - 4 Comments in post

Hello,

I have just finished university and I am currently working to try and pay off some debts. I figured if I can get my accommodation as cheap as possible this would help me get out of debt quicker. I would like to experiment with living in a tent and also with sustainable living. I learn by doing, and this would be a great opportunity to learn about low-impact living.
I am looking for an area in West-Mids/Worcester which has a close-by water supply and reasonably good access. You will find that I am a very respectful and easy going person and will look after any land that is rented.
Thank you.

Looking for the perfect spot
by JOE on MARCH 19, 2010 - 0 Comments in post

My girlfriend and I are interested in building an earthship. We have been studying sustainable and off grid building practices for the past few years, and are finally in the financial position to make a move. We are not limiting ourselves to a specific area of the country, but we would prefer something in the Pacific Northwest. We don’t need a lot of land to ourselves. We must have enough space to start a large production vegetable garden and raise chickens. We highly value the idea of having public land either backing up to the property or very close by.
We are looking for other people that want to go in together on some quality land. The perfect plot of land, not necessarily the biggest, is what we want to focus on. If there is anyone out there who shares similar goals or has some advice to give, we welcome you to contact us.

Thanks
Joe and Elica

I currently live in Rochester Hills, MI and i know for a fact that thi isnt what mankind was set on this earth for. I want to live with all living orgnisms as equals. I dont believe that man should hve power over anything! and that nobodies “destiny” was supposed to be something famous! I believe in oneness and consciousness. I love to love others and help them and thats all that matters to me. I wanna be in nature and truly letting life live inside of me. my dream would be to live in a community near the beach in nice sunny weather, hunting, growing, living off the land and everyone live as one.

We have a 16 acres land with over 800 feet of private white sand beaches and lagoons. Our lots are located in a private island of the Bahamas which has also a private 3000 meters airstrip for Jet and small aircraft landings.

We would like to either open a Eco-Resort (The first above-water bungalows in our 2 lagoons like in Bora Bora), and/or if we do not find an investor or a partner, we will build private creole style homes for resale (1500 Square feet max).

We have the best well-water of the Berry islands, so no problem for water, but we do not have access to electricity, so we need to get a off grid system (Solar & Wind) to power our project. We will be 100% sustainable, as per the power (Solar and/or Wind), water with well-water osmosis filtration system, organic farming on site, sun compost toilet systems, water recuperation, etc.

If you are interested in knowing more about it or you want to be part of the construction of this site, bringing your knowledge and help, please email us, we would be glad to speak with you:
