We are a family with 4 children aged 13, 9,7 & 3 who have just purchased a 5 hectare quinta with its own stream flowing through it on which we have plans to make a vegetarian family community. We have already put in a 120m bore to provide us with plenty of pure drinking water. The stream provides us with water for growing all the food we require and we have a tractor to plough the fields. presently we are starting to renovate the old stone building to build a community kitchen. We envisage people living in Yurts around the main building , ours has just arrived so we will be building that soon. We have plans for chicken for eggs and goats for milk and a donkey or horse for the children to ride. We are looking to live a simple life as close to nature as we can, in tune with the seasons and our environment. If this is the sort of life you are looking for please get in contact with us.

    Hello to all Off Griders, Would just like to say that the family community we are starting is in Portugal. Location has not been updated to the map as of yet. But if you wish to relocate to Portugal and join us please feel free to contact us. Many thanks

    Hi, I’m Diana!
    I am 25 years old and my dreams are as big as yours. I frequently talk to others about this dream but get scoffed at for wanting to go off the grid. I am an army veteran, the army taught me skills in electrical work which I may be able to bring those skills to a community. I’d love to chat more!
