[before_listing images= youtube=aPgMODWTeRo] hello. my name is Clifford.
my wife & I just came into owning 10 acres free & clear. we are located 9 miles south of pyote. we do our business in monahans texas. we have a base camp set up with food ,water, tents, cots, on private property.
The offer here is that we would like to find other off grid people who are interested in off grid living like earthships,solar hot water,sustainable farming,.

For those who are interested we offer that if you help us build the home and school where people can learn for free the ways of sustainable living then we will help you build a home on our land as well. we need people to help build community.

    Hi my name is Allen and I’m a single Father of two children basically still babies a 1 year old gorgeous baby girl and a 3 year old handsome young man. Their mother abandoned us in Florida, so I brought them home with me to Pennsylvania and took her to court for custody and the Judge awarded me primary custody of my two babies. I had spinal surgery last year and with jobs not wanting to hire me it is very difficult to live in the city.. I am very handy, I have more than 13 years of construction experience. I can do alot of work General construction is my specialty. Please respond if you think you can use me in any way.
    Thank you and God Bless.

    I’m an ARMY Veteran, who had some pretty bad luck the past couple of years. I want to find myself again through helping others building their community in the hopes of finding my own. I have substantial amount of experience in desert, mountain, and jungle survival, also am familiar in construction and minor carpentry. I am also very proficient in computers, and a damn good cook as well. I’m young, 25 yrs and a smoker as well, looking to work hard for my room and board. Ready to leave whenever you guys are ready.

    We are still very interested in seeing this project come to reality. There have been some possible changes come up. we have just recently found my biological family and learned of land that is of a larger acreage. This land is closer to 2 and half hours from San Antonio.
    AS for the comment suggesting that people take the time to get to know our personality we would agree. This is a need to be served both ways. We would like for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you.
    living like this can be a challenge even for those of us who mean well. This is not intended to be a dictatorship but rather a responsible community. There are some basics in place for now (ie) Hard drugs,violence,theft, will not be tolerated. in general the idea for now is that there are 3 forms of rules one is private (do as you see fit in your own dwelling so long as nothing harmful leaves your dwelling,) semi public (private space that is open to the view of others. this would be subject to community choice as to what is acceptable.) and last but not least public space. this would be space that is both open to the view of others in the community, and subject to the shared use of every one in the community. this also would be subject to community vote as to what is acceptable or not.

    I’m here to tell a very true story. I took an opportunity 3 years ago that was identical to Clifford’s: help build a sustainable home on some one else’s land with the promise of being part of a future community. I accepted the offer and promptly ended up in a dictatorship-like situation where the Fundamental Rule was “Do all labors as instructed or leave”. The situation was much worse than traditional employment
    – because, “Leaving” meant “homelessness in a foreign land”
    Yet, at the same time…
    My only “incentive” to stay was another man’s promise that I could stay longer if I worked harder.

    We are a family of 5 and (Me-32, Wife-24, Daughters 8&7, and son 2 years old) and would jump at the chance to help you with your school and long term plans of off-grid living and teaching…
    If you are still considering candidates, please email me at davidhayes42718@gmail.com and we can maybe share numbers and talk over the phone about it…
    Thank you for your post

  18. lynn

    I would like more information, I am looking for a off grid community, one where we all become one, so to speak, I have lived on a farm, lived off grid for a while.

  19. Marty

    I am very interested in joining you to both live and teach this to other interested parties. I have skills to share and don’t mind helping by being a “step and fetch it”. I grew up on a farm that raised everything we ate fruits, veggies, cow, chickens etc. and what the animals ate. I have horse experience, sheep and goats. I spin, weave and knit, sew ( with or without a machine), dye, crochet etc. I have experience in greenhouse cropping, teaching, and much more. I am looking forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

  20. Big Mike

    Hi Clifford,

    If you are serious about being totally off the grid and creating a self-sustaining community, I want to help. I have a multitude of skills including but not limited to designing and building wood structures of all sorts. (sheds, barns, fences, school rooms, houses, cabins, community kitchens, community bath/shower, etc..) I enjoy teaching others how to do whatever I know and enjoy learning things I don’t know. I don’t do drugs (including alcohol) and I am a non-believer. So, if you are serious, let me know.

  21. Jimmy

    Been thinking about living off-grid for a couple of years now. I’m 25, have experience in plumbing. Was wondering if it would be possible to commit to a short term trial to so if the life-style is suited to me. If not, would be great to hear how your getting on! Jimmyknight500@hotmail.com

  22. Tammissia

  23. Albert

    I should add that I’ve a degree in Human Development and counseling. Not only would these skills be an asset in community building (the people part of building), I could also be utilized in future school scenarios as an assistant educator or counselor. Albert

  24. Albert

    Hi Clifford, I too am interested in your offer. My name is Albert. I’m a motivated, knowledgeable, and hardworking individual (however, it should be noted that I have a bad back for my age – need to remain mindful of what level of stress I put on it – take this into consideration when selecting). Please email me at your earliest convenience at wolfgangstrange@gmail.com (Albert)

    i am getting alot of reply from this add. This is good to see that so many people are getting there heads on right.
    problem is that a lot of the replies dont have a contact method. due to the high number of reply we will only make it a point to contact those who leave a solid email/ or a phone number. i have only my gmail phone to use.
    i dont know how to set it up to get incomming calls. beside that we are very happy and humble to be able to work with and possably live with such a promising community of people.
