I live totally off-the-grid on 7 acres of hillside in one of the most beautiful parts of Spain. Also close to Portugal. My plan is to become totally self-sufficient. Now I need a partner/ soul-mate. If you are interested please see my site: http://elpocito.wordpress.com
A 7 minute video with Neil and Hwei-Ying who settled in Fiji for an off-grid lifestyle after dropping out and living on a boat for 5 years. They grow most of their own food and enjoy island life and their friendship with the locals around them.
Have you been looking for an Off-Grid community and been disappointed? Have you found communitites want you to believe what they believe, live as they live, give you specific tasks to perform, or want you to be an automoton?
Not your “leaders”
We are looking for like-minded, self-responsible individuals to join us on our New Mexico mountain ranch.
My name is Michelle. I would like to find other people who would benefit from creating an extended family that can help each other in all the ways we need help. I have 420 acres of land in New Mexico I would like to find others who would like to share living on this land. The home I want to build will be self sufficient green homes with wind and solar power. I’m single, 41. I graduated from nursing school in 1994. At this time I home school my youngest son and have since he was 11. If this sounds like something you would like to be part of then email me and we can talk more so I can answer any questions you might have. There’s even good hunting available with deer, antelope, rabbits, etc.. on the land. If you are interested in becoming a part of this type of life then get in touch with me soon.If you are interested and would like to share this land and feel you can contribute a little money every month to help make a community than contact me and we can exchange numbers to talk and see what we can work out to be partners in this new community I hope to establish. If anyone wants to trade phone numbers and talk on the phone then let me know. email@example.com

Currently I live in Busan, South Korea where I work with young people as an ESL teacher. While living abroad I have had the good fortune of having been able to save some money, and as a result I recently bought about two acres of hillside property just outside Spruce Pine, NC. I am planning on developing my off grid presence there in May of 2014. And I am posting this as an outreach invitation for folks in the Spruce Pine area and as an invitation to people who may be interested in creating a permaculture community / enclave to consider buying land near or adjacent to my property. The neighborhood there is beautifully located, secluded, inexpensive, hilly, forested land that is close enough to town to live a bicycling lifestyle. It is undeveloped accept for one built spec-home… all the other lots are empty with utility stub-outs and access roads in place. The website for the development is
See: High Elevation Mountain Land Sale
and… the following link is for the lot next to mine (It is listed there at a huge price, but please note the prices are negotiable: I got my lot for $15,000)
There are a lot of factors that play into the complexity that makes such a plan difficult to imagine from a distance, so my plans for the property have been in flux since I purchased it in January…. I have long-since lost count of the number of home plans I have drafted up, considered as feasible and then set aside until I have enough experience on the land to more thoughtfully consider what I will actually do there. It would appear that ideally I would settle-down there off of the grid in a permanent capacity, but I can’t honestly consider that as a a realistic notion until I have more experience with the land and within the Spruce Pine community. Right now it seems most prudent and inspiring to concentrate on what it is that I want to do with the land as an extension of what I am settled on doing with my life at present. And as such I have come to consider the site first off as a campsite where I will enjoy the coming summer while familiarizing myself with the property and continuing the process of identifying and fostering my life’s work. In that respect I can see that the land will facilitate my interest in slow, off grid, low environmental impact living; old world scale resourcefulness, neighborliness, nature/ hand crafts, creativity and permaculture. I am also an avowed bicyclist so whenever possible that is the day-to-day mode of transportation I will use.
Among the topics I am interested in pursuing with locals near my property are: 1) possible property caretaker / house sitter positions coming available this summer 2) storage space and/or room rental possibilities near my property 3) local CSA farm employment and or food plan arrangements for the coming summer. Also, more generally speaking, if anyone finds the ideas I have shared of any interest I would love to correspond with you or talk on Skype. My contacts are:
