    Hi there, I understand it’s an old thread but I’m looking for people who might be interested in buying some land in Europe to fix a ruin or build somewhere and live off the grid, perhaps some of you are still interested. I’m just 30 but I’m sick and tired of the city life, the rat race and I’m going to saving to buy some land. I was thinking of doing it alone but it’d be definitively much easier to do it in company.

    My idea was to buy land and a ruin in France, starting prices are as low as 5000 euros for something really dilapidated or around 15000 for something that only requires some work. I believe that a bunch of people could easily rebuild an old farm-house and work the land.

    My idea was to contribute by buying the land and ruin and having others help out with the materials and work + expertise. My plan was to grow organic food and sell it at the local village to make some extra cash as well as blogging and writing books and photo-books about the life there (I’m a photographer).

    Well, that’s my idea, hope it sounds good with some of you. My e-mail is halibutlevel10@outlook.com

    Searching for a plot of land in Germany or EU where it is allowable to build a self sustaining cob house community. Does anyone have ideas or suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Otherwise I could return to the states, but the government is cracking down (like in Texas and Florida) and making off grid living ILLEGAL! (Just makes me speechless…) I slowly don’t care where I need to go, but I need a different life than the one that was fashioned for me.
    Thank-you and may you all be protected on the paths you forge.

    Hi, need to find a community. I lived for a year in wwoof, helpx and open community in Spain and France to learn as much as possible from living&thinking outside mainstream. This changed me in many ways and became very clear that this was my future. Last 2 years trying to make myself selfsufficient back at home in Belgium. Realising and experiencing the need of community! Also I want to live further away from citys and pollution. Prefer mountains :-) Where? Europe or any other country I can enter, also very interested about experiences in countrys like Norway/Finland/Sweden to live off-grid.

    Hey there, if interested, I know a couple of land-owners in northern Finland (Oulu area, Kiiminki-Haukipudas to be specific). Who are willing to sell land. The land is heavily forested, swampy, there are pretty much lakes and rivers nearby. I often camp and fish there, very nice place. If you want, you can send me email, nesthor(at)luukku(dot)com.
