He moves it around Cambridgeshire, living behind hedges or down green lanes for a week or two at a time. (more…)

5 acres wanted – Rural West Virginia
by NICK ROSEN on JULY 2, 2014 - 0 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Looking for somewhere ideal to live – gently sloping, south-facing, water on-site, no annoying neighbors, only nice neighbors, preferably living off the grid.

I am looking in this area because life is sweet, land is cheap and folks look out for each other.

correct me if I am wrong.

Looking in Mallorca
by NICK ROSEN on JULY 21, 2010 - 3 Comments in I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE OFF-GRID

I have a place in the North West of the island- looking for others in the area who are off the grid to get a discount on group-buying solar panels and other things.
Its a beautiful spot up in the hills and I am looking for someone to live there and work the place when I am not there.

10 acres near Durango — trees,spring

Hello!
I own two separately deeded 10 acre parcels side by side.
Both border 9000 acres of public land and are secluded and quiet. They are located approximately 30 miles sw of Durango, Colorado and have a nice view of the La Plata mountains to the north about 20 miles. These are the southern San Juan Mountains.

There is no water on the property but a very nice spring that you pay $100 per year to use as much as you want. There are many people hauling water in this area and it is only about 9 miles from the property on a straight country road. The last 1.75 miles to the property is an unmaintained county road. I am keeping one of the 10 acre parcels to live off the grid and will built a small structure out there this summer.
I have already done experiments with gravity fed drip irrigation on timers to grow food. It was very productive and I was able to leave for extended periods and it took care of itself on two double A batteries. I would be
willing to sell one of the 10 acre parcels. Let me know if you are interested in more info

Off-Grid Community – North-West Majorca
by NICK ROSEN on FEBRUARY 25, 2010 - 9 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

This is my heart-stoppingly beautiful mountainous woodland near the ancient village of Deia.

Word has spread amongst walkers who come to the mountain from around the world, but they rarely pass the front door of this 6 acre mixture of pine and olive plantations.

Its remote – 700M above sea level – a 20 minute drive from the main road – and there is enough water, several buildings and several neighbours, all local farmers.

We have a lot of fun up here, and there is plenty of work to be done – and the opportunity to join me and help out on the land in return for a place to stay and space to exist quietly.

LandBuddy – link with others off the grid
by NICK ROSEN on FEBRUARY 25, 2010 - 7 Comments in LANDBUDDY

Welcome to the beta launch of LandBuddy ™, a place where you can find new off-grid friends and form groups to share land, acquire real estate  and other resources (no commercial postings please).

Looking for the perfect bug-out location?  Real Estate prices are high. Or perhaps you already have some forest or agricultural real estate and are looking for others to share the land?  But who?

Or, maybe you’re just intrigued by this idea of living off the grid, and you want to meet some folks who are building a community together, and help out a bit.

Whichever your interest, Off-Grid.net’s new LandBuddy service is for you. Real estate prices may have fallen but good land is still out of the reach of most. And finding other people who also want to live in an off the grid community in the same region as you is really hard.

We are here to help change that. (more…)
