Help and information

My family and I are interested in an off-the-grid lifestyle as a future goal to attain. We are avid organic gardeners, and enjoy an active, suburban lifestyle.

Looking for other off grid fanciers to buy land with!

Hello there!
Is anyone interested in grouping together to buy some woodland? We’re in Edinburgh, but would move!
I’m looking to find somewhere to live off grid, in a yurt or other temporary dwelling however most plots are too large for just me and my boyfriend, and too expensive!

Is anyone interested in buying a big plot as a group then dividing it out, so we can all use it for whatever we like, camping, woodland crafts, living, playing etc.

Let me know if you’re interested!

Hi! I will be starting my search for a place to live off the grid. I bought my van and will start my journey this late spring/early summer. I am interested in suggestions for inexpensive land, your experiences in ‘vanning’, and someone who would like to be a pen pal. I do have some skills – carpentry, simple electrical connections, kinda mechanical, horse training (and equine massage), nursing and herbal therapy, gardening, and vet tech – other stuff too. My chronological age is 55 but my spirit is much younger and I’m financially self sufficient. learned calmness, gratitude and the importance of being a good steward. Hoping to hear something soon, info is always appreciated! Tx

Going off-grid in Central Scotland
by DOMINICPORTER on MARCH 3, 2011 - 7 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

My family and I are looking for like minded people to get a bit of land and set up an offgrid community (village? zone?) somewhere within reach of Edinburgh.

We have our eye on a large patch of farm land and with enough people we plan to buy it and build up to being completely off grid. Initially this will be camper van based, progressing to a yurt or similar with composting toilets, solar/wind power, poly tunnels etc.

If you are interested in something similar, get in touch and we can meet up to discuss options!

Looking to move out west
by HI_IM_SPENCER on MARCH 1, 2011 - 13 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I am a 23 year old male living in Orlando, FL. I make my living as a Video Editor. I am looking to move somewhere in the midwest/west and live off the grid.

I am drowning in student loan debt (among other things), and I want to escape this phony life of materialism and constant hunger for money. I want to learn to be self-sufficient and live off the grid with 1-3 like-minded, friendly people. I want to experience true freedom, and I want to remain as tucked away from ‘normal ‘ society as possible.

I am a very friendly person. Very easy to get along with.

I have $1000 saved up so far to start my journey towards living off the grid. If anyone is willing to take me in or help me out, it would be much appreciated.

Also, I am not lazy. I am perfectly willing to work hard to shape my life into what I want it to be.
