We are a couple that are into our 10th month “off grid” on our 156 acre piece. Some infrastructure is in place but still a lot to do! Looking to build a community of people that can help each other with the daily necessities and further comfort for all. Would love to be efficient enough to have live stock some day!

    Hi,

    Looks like we have a lot of people who are interested in starting a new life! I am currently attending UBC Vancouver and have been brought up in a very academic and corporate setting. I have always prided myself in the passion of learning. However, I believe I have misdirected my learning. I grew up in the corporate world, but know that I would be much happier contributing to a much quieter and simpler life. I am currently looking for a mentor, likeminded individuals, or community where we can build on the skills required to live that sort of life and with those skills, be able to offer whatever services that may mutually benefit the group. If you, or anyone here is interested, please email me at littleablake@gmail.com.

    We are very interested in becoming a part of your community! We would like to know your goal and restrictions if any. We would like to know your location. We are very qualified because we have several years of experience living off grid on a 1/3 of an acre. Too small. Community just sounds good to us. 541-295-7715, pireflug@gmail.com, Thank you, James and Cherie

    My husband and I have been in search of a homestead/homestead community. We are very anxious to live the homestead/off-grid life. We have very limited funds so it has been hard for us. We have done all we can to “start” homesteading on the rental property in which we currently reside. We know that this is not our long term plan, but what we are doing for now until we find the right place for us. Please let me know if you are still looking as I would love to hear from you and how things are going. Thank you so much for your time! -Jes & Joe

      Hello, my name is Zach and my wife and I along with our children live in Ohio now and are looking at moving next year as well. We are wanting to go off grid and live a homesteading life. I have a decent amount of money I will be bringing to the table as well. We also have dogs and breed for additional income. I am thinking about buying a nice chunk of secluded land to live off grid on and homestead on. We are looking for the right people to do that with and it sounds like we have a lot in common. Email me at zstern78@gmail.com so we can talk further details and possibly meet up and get a good thing started. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Hello, I am interested in your off grid community, I have many skills but I love to build it is my passion. I have recently looking for people to go off grid with me or maybe go in together on purchasing some land where we could build a homestead community but so far everyone keeps backing out on me. I am a work horse, what I do not know I can learn quickly, I love nature and people who love nature. Please contact me to discuss details if this offer still stands at Free2bm388@gmail.com Thank you.

    Starting a homestead community has been my dream since i was 13 years old. I’m now 20 and realizing it’s not going to come as easily as I hoped. Rounding people together is my biggest downfall. I am looking to join like minded people who share the same aspirations that I do. Please contact me at michaela.c98@yahoo.com

    Hi there :) My name is Trina and my partner’s name is Ty. We have a dog and 2 cats. We also want to live off grid, live alternatively outside the matrix :) I’ve dreamt of living in community for awhile. We were trying to fight for some land here in KY and it just didnt work out, so we need to move at latest end of June. Until then we are looking at all our options and saving up $$ for wherever the Universe is taking us. Ty is currently a server but he is interested in Carpentry, he’s great with animals and nature. I work as an educational test grader online, but I am a healer, teacher, run a YouTube channel and site, I paint and write and love animals and nature. Let us know where you are located, thanks!

    Hello, my name is Shawn (Deshawn is my legal name). I’ve recently moved out to Vermont and have saved up almost $7000 within 6-7months from working at a KFC while renting a very cheap spot. Before that I did a temporary job on a farm here. I was soon planning to go homeless to further save up money to one day have my own cabin in the woods, but I am very interested in this. I may be a city kid who is unfortunately a millennial, but I have an old soul that needs to become self sufficient and I love living closer to nature. Hopefully I hear back from you soon to further discuss this. I have no GED, haven’t completed high school, no kids, have yet to get a driver’s license and I have no friends or family. I have no real deadweight, so I can devote myself to your service. Will pay to be picked up.

      Hello, I am researching, learning wild edibles and medicines. I have not mastered it yet but I plan to and hope to be self sufficient in nature going back to primitive culture ways before the Europeans came to America. my name isTristen, perhaps if u know the origins of the name u know it’s probably not coincidence for my thrive to learn these skills. all that being said I love the mountains always have as a boy and still do today. I have been living in the high desert of Colorado and recently Utah. I miss the mountains and would like to leave my current place of living. Free from the land ,free of societies norms.
