Looking for off grid communities needing members.
by KYLE on SEPTEMBER 29, 2014 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I’m 18, young and still wet behind my ears, but I have had much ambition to get off the grid and live the more simple lifestyle. I’ve done extensive research upon off grid living in Alaska and have come to understand that I may not have the skills needed to peruse this goal myself. This goal all began when I really started to pay attention to how our govt., economy, etc works, and I know I’m not the only one noticing these dramatic changes. I truly hate to see this for my generations, and generations to come. I was recommended by a man to look into off the grid communities and have found several to my liking by haven’t had any luck contacting them. I have some skills that may come in handy such as, woodworking, farming, repair, electrical. I’m also a lifeguard at Kentucky Spash Waterpark. I’ve been there for 3 years now. Although lifeguarding itself may not be needed, the skills I have gained through training may. If anyone is needing a new member of there community I am very open to listening.
Help me, help you.
Kyle.

Cohousing Cardiff: want to develop a co-housing group
by U_AMIN on SEPTEMBER 23, 2014 - 0 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID, I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE OFF-GRID

The vision is to create, within the next 3 years, a housing-based community in Cardiff that will encourage social interaction and mutual support whilst reducing our carbon footprint. The development will include self-contained and accessible homes along with a shared co-house and other facilities for communal use (laundry, tool and bike shed; external space for food-growing and leisure; car pool etc).

Looking to go off the grid
by APOLLO on SEPTEMBER 17, 2014 - 2 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I’ve been wanting to move off the grid for quite a few years. Wondering if there are any others on the island as well.

I want to be free and live with the world; not simply on it.

Where to start? I’m 24 years old and a full-time college student, right now. My philosophy has always been the golden rule and I try my best to uphold it. I’m an animal lover of all kinds; cat’s, dog’s, bird’s, even rat’s. I’m a fun loving person and would love to get away from society. I want to support myself and do my part for a small community. I know the basic’s on growing plants, but my expertise lie within electronics (solar power). If I could find a place to do my part and not have to worry about bills, I would relocate tomorrow. I want to help the world and I’m looking for more people who want the same. I want peace and to live with animals outdoors. I do not want to be controlled or have control; I want to simply live and share with my fellow neighbor.

I found my dream home, but not the financing
by JANELL on AUGUST 30, 2014 - 1 Comment in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Living off the grid would be a dream come true. My goal is to have sustainable housing when I retire. I found the perfect property, but can’t find the financing. The owner will carry 50% too :(. Not to mention – I am off the grid on my credit I guess, because all I have is a car payment! Not good if you are looking for credit.

Seeking like minded people to form spiritual eco tribal community
by ALICEVCARTER on AUGUST 16, 2014 - 5 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

Myself and my friend David have met and are seeking a group of like minded people to move back to nature possibly in Italy or Spain and build a community based on the people, land and nature.

The main difficulty with living in today’s society is that for many of us it doesn’t feel natural on any level. Everything feels separate from us. Slowly an alternative culture has developed away from this but this in itself is fragmented by its own idealism and is rife with moralist/altruistic justifications for what ends up being very subjective, fear-based motivations for change.
There is however a growing number of people who are interested in moving towards a transition back to nature, for no other reason than that it feels “good” and it’s what they like. Transition culture is not something we can cherry-pick to our personal liking but is something that occurs through us, more like a free-fall into a way of being that “I” have no control over but yet feels deeply connecting and “right”. It isn’t something that can be manufactured but occurs when almost everything else has fallen away. This project originates from a dying away of the ideal of “individualism”, which is occurring through us all now.
The project expressed here is the beginning of a transition movement which has no leader or centre or ideology to be upheld, but is uncompromisingly focused in the observation and recognition of nature and natural processes as the followed direction. There is no “choice” invovled in this process, it simply that which instictively feels natural that is followed. This is not compartmentalized to any one aspect of life because that is not natural. As such for those involved “back-to-nature” it is the magnetic pull that is all-encompassing, involving the whole of human life from finding food and shelter to connecting to other humans, every nuance being left to nature’s way.
This page is a blog-like progression of events of how we have decided to find some land and create a natural-farming community and will illustrate how this community develops and changes. It is also an open invitation to those who would like to be within this at whatever stage, from here at its at pre-seed stage or at any point thereafter, as we follow this simple instinctive-intuitive response to our current lives.
Below are articles, books and materials which are essential in their entirety to illustrate the way we have been changed and opened-up to realize the true nature of ourselves behind the mask. I would suggest that you choose some of these to read in order to see whether you are really interested in what we are doing. Then, if you feel drawn to this, do contact me as I would very much like to hear your comments and would also be glad of your like-mind! Please contact me via this page.
Through something unknown we meet in kinship.

Please look at our website for details on blueprints, ideas and articles :)

Spiritual state
by AVKUBOTA on AUGUST 14, 2014 - 6 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID

I consider myself a spiritual being, who is self sufficient and always hungry to learn more. I absolutely love to surround myself with nature, hiking, swimming and have the idea of wanting to grow my own vegetation. My ideal situation is to live outdoors, away from society and the city and their commercial ways of living. As far apart as possible, and become self sustainable in all ways. I believe we all have the same capabilities, it’s up to us as individuals to want to be capable and translucent. I am 24 yrs. old and have a 3 month old boy. I want my young one to grow up with a different mind set thean the majority of society. Away from TV, commercial influences, and be closer to Earth. We currently live as part of the society and buy organic products from our grocery to our hand soap. And try my best to pick to most earth friendly products including diapers. I wanted to dothis before I had kids but sometimes, our plans change. It’s never too late. I am open to move to any other country/continent. With a good sufficient plan in hands.
