I am a woodworker although i do also work with metals . not being rich I need to find somewhere from which I can eke out a living making furniture and household items for sale but also to provide a small space to grow my own vegetables. I much prefer to make what i need than purchase it and also use my skills and knowledge to assist others. I am a single guy in my early 50′s
Hallo, ich heiße Petra, bin 48, und suche jemanden, der Interesse hat, unabhängig voneinander ein kleineres Stück Land bzw. fruchtbaren Boden zu kaufen, um darauf zu tun und zu lassen was sie/er will und nach seiner Façon glücklich zu werden.. Ich denke, zu zweit oder auch zu dritt geht’s leichter..
Hi, i am Petra, 48 years old, and I’m looking for someone, who has interest, independently, to buy a piece of property and live as you want. I think, in twos or to third it’s easier..
We are a family of 5! I am 32, my husband is 57 and we have a 7 year old son and two daughters ages 5 and 2. We are looking to move out of the city ASAP (Tomorrow would be great) We have a popup camper stocked and ready to go. We are looking to move to or start a community. We would like to stay in or near Michigan, however we are willing to go almost anywhere. We are originally from Oklahoma and have live in Arkansas (we do not want to go back there). We both have experience in building homes and did home remodeling for years. We have set up community gardens and did professional landscaping. We are avid gardeners. We both have idea for wind generation, hot water, and many other off the grid power sources. We are very easy going people. We tend to get along well with all types of people. We don’t care about color or religion. We are all human and should be treated as such. We would like to be somewhere there are other children. We are both disabled but we are able to contribute and sustain ourselves and our children. Our kids enjoy working in the garden and love to build things. They are very well behaved and respectful. If you are interested in learning more about us you can contact us at email@example.com We don’t have much in the way of money but we have heart and knowledge to share. I cant wait to hear from you all. Thanks for your time.

My wife and I have been seriously studying the OTG lifestyle, and we’re ready to start making serious plans to move forward. Our understanding so far is that the first thing you should do is buy the land, even if you’re not ready to develop it at the moment to allow ample time for permits and such.
The problem is we have no experience in purchasing any sort of property. We’re fairly young, and have no idea how to even find the land we want. Google seems to be useless, with mostly ‘luxury lots’ showing up, while other lots are far too close to civilization for comfort- we want to be as far away from the conventional American life as possible.
Do we contact a realtor? Or just start getting out there and looking? We’re not looking to join a community, but we would appreciate a few tips here and there. Any advice would be great. We’re hoping to stay on the east coast, possibly getting as far away as WV or MD (we’re in NC at the moment), so we can stay relatively close to family.
We’re looking for one acre, more or less (more of course if the price is right) and we’d like undeveloped land. If anybody knows where we can find some good resources (and I’m sure you do) we’d love to know about them. Thanks!
I plan on going off grid in Ohio I doubt it will be something I can afford for a few years yet but I would like it to be before I turn 30. With the right people I might be willing to consider a community.
My name is Jacob Hetcel, I am very intrigued by the ideas of living off the land. I have learned over the years to Love this Earth. What I am looking for is a community that needs members, or someone to start a community or anything with me. I am extremely open to all ideas. I have grown up in the woods and know how to survive. I have also worked on a horse ranch. Also I have adapted many mechanical and construction skills. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been fascinated with Kibbutz-type communities, and want to find others willing to join us. We are interested in staying in California, so we can commute to a job in the bay area OR close to the Seattle area, as we need to be in the tech industry. We are willing to have a longer commute to the peninsula too.
We want the freedom of off-the-grid living, but a realistic life close to our jobs (so we can support our debt).
I’m sure other families out there must be a in a similar position.
I’m a nomadic explorer looking for advice on how to buy the right piece of property for off grid living. I don’t believe I’m looking for commune living so much as a loosely held together community where it is possible to buy raw milk, grass fed beef, organic veggies and oils and also build relationships. I’m open to any ideas.
I’m already off grid in that I have no bills, no job, no address, and pay no rent nor taxes, legally. I travel most of the year outside of the US and the other months am looking for land and a tiny sustainable green structure to call home base. I love privacy and time alone, and I also love people and activities and friendships. I’d ideally like a community where both are possible.
35/female/ unattached, nomadic type. I’m not a hippie but I aspire to be in some ways. I grew up totally off grid and have also lived in major cities.
I’m looking for any kind of feedback, as I pursue this idea of procuring some piece of land to grow some things on and harness the sun and wind and water. I’ve lived on sailboats and love small space living.
Any ideas/collaboration/thoughts welcome!
