    <span style=”font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 17px; background-color: #ffffff;”>In El Salvador Mauricio and Gloria have bought an abandoned Hare Krishna complex. With this they have created something very special. They are growing an organic garden and teaching children of their local community about living sustainably as well as English. This project has the opportunity to create such a positive impact on the local community, by keeping the children off the streets and giving them something to be passionate about and keeping them in touch with nature. They invite volunteers from all over the world to come and help them by sharing their skills. </span><br style=”font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 17px; background-color: #ffffff;” /><span style=”font-family: arial, sans-serif; line-height: 17px; background-color: #ffffff;”>This film is created to show the amazing work Gloria and Mauricio have accomplished and to make other people aware of this superb project.

    Hi everybody,

     

    I made a video on what I truly means to fully live off the grid.   I made it because a lot of people want to live off grid, but they do not want to give up the comforts of doing such.  Here’s my video, it’s just me talking about what it means to love off grid.  Thanks…

    Hi AClarino, everyone has their own definition of what it means to be living off grid, yours isn’t mine, mine isn’t yours, I don’t think anyone should tell another person “if you aren’t living under MY definition of “off the grid” then you aren’t really living off the grid”…

    This has been a point of discussion here and elsewhere. Personally I refer to myself as living off the grid, and no one else gets to tell me I’m not, even if I’m not living up to their personal standard of living off grid.

    I know you meant well and were trying to educate people, it would be nice if you would say that this is your OPINION instead of stating it like it’s a fact. Please understand that there are different levels of being off grid, there is no right or wrong way to do it, being off grid doesn’t necessarily mean being 100% self sufficient, that is 2 separate things. I have people (usually online) ask me how I can be “off grid” and still have internet connection, their idea of being off grid apparently means living in a cave, wearing skins and eating worms, LOL…

    I would love to see more of how you are living and surviving, it’s interesting to see the different ways people do what they do. Don’t let this run you off, post more goodies here for all of us.

    Since you posted this in 2 places, I’ll copy this reply there as well.
