Looking to build OTG Retreat
by SKIMAN1115 on FEBRUARY 20, 2012 - 29 Comments in I WANT TO GO OFF GRID, I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE WHO ARE OFF-GRID

I want to meet others that wish to live an off an the Grid lifestyle. I already own 6 acres of land in Rising Fawn Ga 30738 that I am starting to build a small OTG retreat on. I’m interested in building multiple small partially underground earthbag ( sandbag ) structures to live in, collecting rainwater and hopefully drilling a well, growing organic vegetables/fruit trees, raising chickens, and using solar power. I would like to meet others that would be interested in helping me build the retreat in exchange for living on the land for a period of time. I would also be interested in meeting other land owners around the US/World that would be interested in working out some kind of land sharing deal in exchange for each others labor/services/land.

Looking for people who would like to spend 2 years planning everything out

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 =].

P.S.- I always reply back
