We are a family of 5 looking to set up off-grid. We need lots of advice and help to get set up as we have 3 young kids. Wales is somewhere we are looking to start our new life. We are Vegetarian/Vegan so we won’t need to worry about livestock. A community is also a desirable asset to have for support and healthy wellbeing. We are learning as much as we can about how to off-grid in our spare time but it’s harder when you have VERY young children to support.

– Anyone know how to find land? (In Wales)

-How do we plan to find or even build a small home for our young children?

– We have very little money so finances are limited. How much will we need to save?

– We also don’t drive which could halt our plans. (We plan to learn to drive when we can).
