Me and my wife are going off grid soon and want people to come with us we haven’t bought the land yet so we can’t say where it will be but we are looking for people to come live on the land with us. We are looking for at least 1 farmer 1 butcher and 1 wood worker and 1 electrician. Aside from that if you have livestock to contribute like pigs cows or goat we welcome you too. If you have neither it doesnt matter its a learning experience for all who come. We dont want money from anyone we just want to create a self sustainable community on the land and any extra stuff the community makes can be sold to improve the community. If interested please contact me so we can start to get to know each other. My email is my name is William thank you.

    I am looking for such a community. How ever I think this kind of community would benefit the most from being in southern areas that have 4 seasons, not in a state where we would have to fight 6 month unbearable winters. Since you do not know where yet, this is complicated. Contact me anyway. Willing to work extremely hard long days to earn my own keep. Anything from farming to helping with all other things needed to make this happen and then to help sustain the community as a whole.
