Hello, my name is Val I’m from New York City. I’m looking for people here in New York who would like to go off the grid within the next 2 years. It’s been very hard to find anyone especially in this huge busy city. I’m very much into solar power, wind power, hyro-power, gardening/farming, primitive living, and many more but sadly I’m very limited to what I can do since I live in a building with no back yard or anything . Every morning that I get up for work I feel as if I don’t belong into this society, my heart isn’t made for this concrete jungle. I’ve felt like this for many years and I think I need to do this for myself. I know its a lot of hard work but I see myself enjoying it and waking up every morning taking that first morning breath of fresh clean air stepping on to the grass covered with dew, oh man lol I see it all! I do not have a car so if your within the tri-state area that’ll be wonderful. If not maybe we can arrange something. I’m looking to take 2 years or so of organized planning before I/we make a move. I like things to go smoothly and know what ill do before I do it. Also any advice would be great, I’m new to the site and love stories =].

One of my biggest goals in life is to live off the grid but I don’t know how to. I am a 18 year old girl who lives in a suburban hellhole in nowhere Massachusetts. I am very fortunate to find this webite an I really need help finding information on how to live off the grid. I have no job and no money, and I have trouble dealing with depression. I would love to live in a warm place like Texas, New Mexico, Mexico, or california. If i’m not able to live in those places then I will still love to live in someplace where I can still be a vegan and grow my own food. I am looking for a community or just people that can help me. I don’t want to be a miserable corporate slave for the rest of my life and since the economy is going down the drain, I want to save myself before it’s too late. I could really use all of the help I could get, thank you so much for reading and for the future support.

I’m a Freelance Pagan geek looking for similar like-minded people to live off-grid in the UK.
What I want is a community not a commune, where people are free to explore their own goals within the overall envelope and not have to worry too much about what the rest of the group have to say (I suppose in some respects like Scoraig). Emphasis given to being self-sufficient and the applicable use of technology.
Hello, My name is Kevin and I am 22 years old. I have always had the desire to live off the land in some sort of community(like in the movie “The Beach”)
It’s more of the sense of community and closeness I am looking for. I want a good group of people that actually care about the well being of others, with a sense of morality.
The tropical island thing is important to me. I do not like the cold and I believe my skills would be better on an island. I have been a landscaper for the past two and a half years, but as it turns out.. I got laid off. I would like to take my skills that I have acquired and some of others and become a self sufficient community.
I have been looking at islands a little bit and am trying to settle on one. I know there is some untouched land out there, I just need to find it.
I’m not the richest guy in the world, but I am willing to travel at any means. I don’t have much, but with what I do have, I’m not so attached. I have a place in my head of a bamboo village with livestock and a nice garden. I know it’s not easy to do this, but I am willing to strive for it.
