Free Land in exchange for…
by JOSEPH80 on JUNE 16, 2013 - 48 Comments in post

No joke, no scam, just us helping each other..

I have many acres of land throughout TX, TN, CO, & AK. I am looking to give away a couple of acres on each to person(s) who have resources to offer. Whether you have work ability, monetary resources, sheds, solar equipment, well drilling experience, or ANYTHING that can help your community on the land – lets do it. All of my land is RAW and has no utilities – there are utilities available but I will not be hooking them up. The choice is yours.

Lets discuss what we can do and I will in exchange have a contract drawn up that donates your acres of land to you in exchange for whatever we agree.

Joseph

Hi. While during research, I came across this post. How wonderful of you to offer such an amazing idea! My small family of 4 is seeking a small lot (under 1 acre) to live. Among other skills, I have administrative skills to offer (Business degree). Please email surreal.love@yahoo.com with a response.

Love and Prosperity to you and yours.

Hi Joseph. I am not sure to understand you but I feel like your are a respectful and kind person. I live in the Yukon right next to Alaska. I emigrated from France 5 years ago because I couldn’t take on the overcrowded immoral population of western Europe. I found peace in the land of Jack London. It is not the best conditions for growing food or solar energy but the vast land has plenty enough to offer. I am not looking for anything particular as I can take care of myself and my family but like you would be willing to help. I soon will be a journeyman Electrician but living in the north teaches you many trades as you are pretty much on your own most of the time. Where about is your land in Alaska and what are you plan for it. Take care

I am able to labor, build, farm, and teach. I have a multitude of skills, knowledge, and experience necessary to maintain this lifestyle indefinitely. I’m a 26 y/o male, Ex Army. Am fully capable to live on my own, support and train myself, my dog(aussie half breed), and others (continuously of course). However, Community has a very big place in my heart and i need all that it brings in my life. I wont bring much(only what i can pack-in), i’ve always had to pack small anyhow. Shoot me an e-mail and we can find out if i would be suitable to your liking.

20 John { 09.06.13 at 7:44 pm }

I have a few ideas in the colorado region if your offer still stands. Please contact me for more information. I would like to create a sort of utopia. Self sufficient living from a community of people. I would love to grab your ear or at least your monitor and discuss this further.

21 Levi { 09.13.13 at 5:06 am }

Hey my name is Levi, I’m extremely interested in your proposal. I’ve grown up in and out of foster home since I was 18 months old moving from house to house, school to school, city to city. I barley graduated high school, so I have my diploma. I’ve always been to myself, sorta like an out cast wherever I have been, being a ‘loner’. I’m now 20 years young(21 on oct 29th) and I’ve been homeless since I was 18 with no luck finding a job. So again, if your offer still stands, I am more than willing to hike from here(Seattle) to where you need me especially if you are offering land in return of my assistance/help/able body. Let me know, best way to get ahold of me, because I have to got to a library, is my email lvertner@hotmail.com

Hi Joseph!
I’m a female in my mid twenties, drowning in New York City. I hold a degree in sculpture and have had vast experience in building- I helped construct cabins at a summer camp in the Adirondacks and recently built a small sailboat. I am familiar with farming and the basics of homesteading. In April, I am attending a course in cob building and have designs for a low-impact home that I hope to one day build for myself! I am interested in learning more about the community you aim to create… Contact me anytime to tell me more!! I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you and God bless you.

If this is real — I’m interested .. I collect seeds. And I strive to find things that grow with little water and provide big boons from little plants. I currently grow in containers, testing things and coaxing them to produce in 90 degree arid / bone dry weather. That’s what I have to offer. create54321@gmail.com

Hey Joseph, we are interested in your offer. For the past two years we have volunteered/worked at an organic farm here and have helped install solar panels/generators. We have also helped with the gardening and running a blueberry u-pick for them. We are willing to learn, and have attended workshops on how to build with cobb. We are looking for somewhere we can unschool our child and be left in peace unless we want company. Please e mail us as soon as you can, as we want to leave our current living situation. Namaste!

Hey Joseph, I’m a 40+ male, I have a lot of maintenance and construction knowledge. I also have a great idea for a free energy generator. I’m very interested in your off grid property, this is something I’ve been checking out for the past couple of years. So are you still looking for people to share this experience with?
