Young Urban family, with a 2 year old.

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.

    No, we haven’t found any properties yet. We are still looking around. Have you found any properties?

    My husband and I are also in the bay area (Berkeley) and looking to move off the grid. We’re looking as far as perhaps Healdsburg. But like you, thinking about sticking closer to the bay. Have you found land you’re interested in?
