Seeking a permaculture solution…
by LILY on AUGUST 23, 2012 - 0 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

My husband and I are looking for a place to park our live-in vehicle over the autumn months, and possibly beyond. Our choice to live on wheels is both an ecological and financial decision, and a conscious choice to enable us to explore life beyond the perimeters of convention. We are embarking on a project that looks at positive alternatives to our current paradigm, and as part of this we are seeking a base in or near Brighton and the surrounding area. We imagine the back of your garden, the corner of a field, a driveway, or disused yard. We need very little, but access to an outside tap would be preferable. If there were a garden or potential for a veggie patch, we would love to help you bring it to life. We are 33 and 34 yrs, Pete is an ecological designer, specialising in permaculture, and guest lecturer at Brighton University; he is also a skilled carpenter and handyman. I am a sports massage therapist, permaculture student and community volunteer. We can offer help with cooking, cutting wood, caring for your garden, children or animals, our skills, enthusiasm, and a love for living synergistically with nature. If you would like to discuss possibilities, please email lily@wetheuncivilized.org, or call 07832 258 877

Whole house vacuum aka Bobbage

PB is such a tinkerer, his ability to take nothing but scraps, often discarded items and make extraordinary and useful things is one of the biggest reasons we have been able to live off grid while spending very little money, I think of him as my personal MacGuyver. He had been talking about making a whole house vacuum for quite some time now. Normally I really like PB’s inventions, but honestly I wasn’t on board for this one, don’t ask me why, I have no real reason except that I just couldn’t see how it would be better than just running a vac in the sky castle like normal, or could it be the fact that I hate vacuuming? LOL… (more…)

We are a small group with 30 acres in Kansas to share. We are looking for others that are willing to work with us to build a better more natural life. The winter will be spent working cleaning houses and repairs to make money for the community. We want to build green houses, and start a small csa in spring. In spring we will be working only on the land. We provide housing, meals and a small stipend for members. Members joining now will be included in all decision making. We welcome calls for more information and are accepting members now. We do not allow hunting on community land, or cruelty of animals or people. We are accepting of all ages, sexes, religions and more. If you want to be part of a large family and celebrate holidays, eat meals together and build a community that is self sustaining but not isolated consider calling us.
