[before_listing images= youtube=null] Hi my wife and i are looking for other families that want to move off the grid. we are open for community living or one family to join us would be fine too. we have a 5 year old son and we dont want him to grow up with out companionship, we are very serious about doing this asap, we have been thinking about this a lot and have decided that this is how we want to live our lives, we have looked at plots of land in CA,NV,OR, they are very reasonable in price less then $2000. we are 25 and 26 years old we do not mind what age you are, as long as you have the same goals as we do. please be serious as well, leave an email with a number or email address so we can chat, we are not religious, we are more of the hippie type, just done being slaves to our society, [landbuddy_listing youtube=null]

    I am a 36 year old male from muskegon michigan. I am worried about the the way the world is heading. I would love to be part of an off grid community. I am a master mechanic and good at solving problems. My thoughts were to build a tiny house and downsize my life. I am interested in a community or land share where we could grow most of our food instead of eating the crap from the supermarkets. I believe that a strong community is so much more important then material things. People are polluting this planet with all of the wasteful junk they purchase everyday just thinking that it disappears. Its time for change.

    im 28yr old wht male, good shape.. have had successful business career, an im financially stable.ive had my “quarter life crisis ” lol an have this desire to live completely different than what i had been living an slow down from my 100mph city lifestyle…..

    the past couple of yrs i have been renting a farm house an land an have cows,chickens, goats, 2 pigs, ect..but the landlord has just lost his job an has given me notice he is going to have to move back… :(! so i have to find somewhere to go..

    ideally i wanted to find a place to buy, but the idea of joining a “group or community” really intrigues me. i think it could be a wonderful expierence.(could be a horrible expierence too ha)

    Marv your post really perked my intrest..esp with the size of your property..Also Rmergy, i think ive seen your device on youtube…if so very cool, i like it…..ANYONE, if my post sparks intrest let me know. my email is

    im pretty private an dont really post much info on the net, (ths is my 1st time ever doing something like this.)

    im flexible to location, im located in the southeast currently….(an i like it here, since growing season is good, an water is not an issue) open to a living in a house, or i live in my camper.

    i do feel as i would be a MAJOR asset to a community or small family farm/homestead ..i have things that would probably be beneficial such as, 4×4 tractor an loader an equipment, trucks, flatbed an stock trailers, atv,backhoe, welders, tons of tools an air compressors, SOLAR PANELS an a HUGE battery bank. freezers, very nice canning equipment, (i havent used yet, still new in the box)generators ,animals, fencing skills an supplies, an much more….i have plenty of food for my self an maybe enough to share.

    i have a strong desire to learn many different skills an ways of doing things, (for example, i have bought the solar an batteries but havent done anything with them yet, as plans have just bc i have solar panels dont expect me to be an expert..all i know is from books ive read an the hours of youtube videos ive watched.(same with welding, just cus i have welders doesnt mean i know what im doing lol)

    a little bout me, my view points are probably more libertarian, i love to snow ski, an have a desire to be self sufficient. i collect books.

  6. S.P.

    I am 29 years old with 3 tween age children, currently living in Wisconsin. I have a small amount of money saved and currently recieve 2k per month in spousal support payments. This means I would have money to contribute to a community while still being present to do work as well…I want to be totally off grid, maybe have solar/wind turbine at some point, build a house with my bare hands, etc. I would like to learn and work beside others farming, building, and supporting each other . Anyone who would welcome me and my children into your community, please contact me with more information.

    I currently live in WA & Im looking to join an off grid community. I can crochet & cook. I am a hard worker & I’ve been reading up on gardening lately as i want to start my own. I am 24 with no kids & I’m finding it hard to exist in this TV obsessed consumerist country. I want to live a simple life. I am willing to locate anywhere on the west. Would live to great back from anyone when you can email is thank you!

    The area that I have chosen has lots of sunshine, gentle breezes good clean air and good places to build to take advantage of solar, earth or underground homes. It is a good place to do an off-grid community.

    I have a over 600 acres of land rich in mineral resources surrounded by government land 50 miles from the nearest community or grid. I am looking for people that would be willing to work with me to develop an off-grid community not just to survive but to thrive with the wealth of this property and its mineral wealth. Email me at for more details.

    Hi guys,

    Looks like I’ve come to the right place. Great minds! A few folks and I are in the planning stages of an ecovillage down in SC. We convene via telephone every other week. Plans are to go completely offgrid within the next 2 – 3 years. The land has already been acquired. Our website is 98% complete and I will send to you if you are interested. Go ahead and email me at if you’d like to hear more about this venture.
