[before_listing id=399 images= youtube=null] Hi im living off grid in the high desert of NE Nevada and Im looking for others to join me in my adventure.It has always been a dream
to found a village of friends and neighbors
a community of different types of people but with a simple common ideal freedom.Freedom to
build how you want to eat whatever you want without some politician telling you its approved for consumtion.

I dont believe we can truly be free unless we also adopt sustainable practices in the form of energy,water and food so this would be
important as well.

I have always found it funny how many Americans will keep guns and ammo with the idea that they will defend their freedoms
and rights and yet make no attempt to provide
for their own food,water and energy.

you are not free when you rely on a government to provide your necesities of
life.

Do unto others,live and let live,mind your own business,be of service to others etc etc these would be important sayings in a village I want to live in.

I think I fell in love with the idea of a village while reading the lord of the rings
so the fantasy towns of Hobbiton and Bree
with good food, good beer and many different
types of people fulfilling differnt roles in the community appeals to me.

Thanks for reading [landbuddy_listing id=399 youtube=null]

    We believe that your efforts to begin an of grid community is commendable. We recently have felt the great need to join such people. We are both educated and have our own incomes. We have our own RV and transportation, but wherever we settle must have access to internet. Please tell us if you have room for 2 more.
    Sincerely,
    Jim and Alyssaa

    Hey, guys sorry for the slow response. I will also post on the forum. I advise you all to research earthships for housing. Especially if you’re talking about drilling UP TO 300 feet in Montello to get water and damage the water table. Water catchment is the healthier, for both you and the environment, way of getting water. http://www.earthship.org

    Chowen, I am very interested in you concept. I had the opportunity to read several of the emails and want to add a couple of comments. You are exactly correct about creating or having a product to create wealth to support the community. My first concept would be to grow a organic crop. I am sure a water well will need to be drill for this but over time if a successful a crop can be shipped around the country. Another concept could be inviting individuals out to vacation off- the grid. I am sure there are many other suggestions but I think both of these concepts can be done with a small amount of money.

    My wife and I are doing the same thing. We’re building an Earthship and starting a permaculture farm just north of you outside Montello. We have 10 acres of land and are working towards moving that direction.

    Chowan, your post echo some of my own sentiments but you did not mention one of the most important elements which is a sense of community. Not just sense of community but an actual yet intangible something that binds a collection of people together into what can be considered a spirit of common purpose.
