Hi everyone

We are a family living in the south of germany in the black forest.


Its a nice area, lovely nature and very safe.


We are looking for other families who would like to share the experience of going off grid.


Idea mainly is; build a sustainable lifestyle, own water, growing food, own heating, have animals like sheeps or lamas for the wool, build a wood/cob house with solar cells, etc.

just contact us, and see what flows.

    Curious if you have made progress. I am interested in what it takes to do this in Germany. I lived in Germany for almost 5 years and my German is not so great yet so researching German rules and regulation is a bit daunting. I have been watching a lot of videos for folks in the states doing it and I have to say I am interested in what it takes.

    I would like to help you this summer and experiment an off-grid life first hand, to reconnect with nature and meet like-minded people, at the moment I’m an Electrical Student in Ba-WÜ Germany 23 years old.
    with best regards,

    I am a mother and daughter and would like to do something similar! We are currently based in Edinburgh but searching for a different lifestyle for the near future! We would be interested in talking about your ‘project’ :)

    Thank you!
