I live in East London, in a third floor flat and am looking for a place to live and work off grid. In tthe meantime I would like to meet people with some or all of the mixed bag of skills necessary to make the transition. I would like to start a weekly or fortnightly group locally to share these, learn and work out these skills. Any suggestions from people who have done this or something similar, and is anybody interested? Areas of interest are 12v electrics, water, permaculture and wild food, and energy.
Good point. Like the idea of getting closer to the ideal of not being reliant on the grid, not sure why the powers that be cannot see that there is a need for making the energy systems less interdependant, I guess this is what your other post is about, why not have the best of both worlds?
What areas are you interested in pursuing, I am very much interested in the garden shed approach to gaining experience and can offer workshop space in a building that has room to experiment in and on. I am thinking of a wednesday or thursday night.
