Hello my name’s Bruce I have been dreaming about going off-grid and trying to push the boat out for a long while. I’m not afraid to say I need help setting this up, basically I don’t know where to start
location would ideally be nearer the Bristol area. as I would still like to keep a part of the modern life socially and a life full of culture.
My ideal situation is to build my own little tiny home for a family for the future. Ideally this home will be 100% off grid, made from recycled parts, or at least working towards being fully self-sufficient (designs still being finalised). I have an understanding about planning law in the UK being a building surveyor. Ideally there would be a business stream to help others experience off-grid living and help support the community.
I’ve been dreaming about being self-sufficient on the land and it is always continuously changing . I love the idea of permaculture, and polycropping. however I have been intrigued with the idea of going a forestry garden and working with nature and the soil. I have personally tried many different ways to improve soil.
I’m a building surveyor by trade. With an extensive building background knowledge 10 years.
I have grown up on a farm, and the household garden and allotment has always been a thing through my childhood through to adult life. currently have an allotment in Bristol where I have been trying out different ideas. no dig, perennial Vegetable growing.
I am a keen forager, a mushroom foraging for at least 3 years
Also a keen bushcraft background, and living off the land.
- Many other skills if you want to talk let me know.
What I’m looking for and when others decide to join we (list might change):
I would love to get a community of a few people (family) to live together and work the land off grid and self sustaining, with a vision of potentially any business Adventures which might come from this.
Ideally this person (or family) would have the capacity to help purchase land with me or If this is not in your capacity land renting/leasing. Or other agreed methods of exchange.
This is not essential, would love to have people who are keen in new education, away from the broken system.
Who is creative in their own way musically or other.
- Again not essential but who is into holistic healing.
