    I just attended a seminar of Earthships downtown Montreal and it was really nice! I’d like to meet with like-minded people as well.

    the only problem with owning land is that the government will know where you are.

    Hi, Salut! (francais plus bas)
    A collective of people is currently forming in the Montreal area to start a collective eco-building project. In other words, we wish to build homes for each other and build facilities which we can sale or rent in order to finance our collective projects. Everyone is invited to this wonderful multi-outcome project! Please join us, we do not want your money, we want your ideas, we want to collaborate, share ideas, ressources, creativity and in the end, we want everyone engaged in building homes for little money and that will cost little in energy…

    Already there is an event scheduled via facebook and a meetup to take place this winter via Meetup.
    Please write to me Anne-Marie Bourassa on FB or visit http://www.facebook.com/?ref=tn_tnmn#!/event.php?eid=207073949366548

    And let’s meetup for coffee or whatever you prefer to drink http://meetu.ps/4Q7WY #OccupyTogether

    Un collectif se forme actuellement dans les environs de Montréalpour un projet d’éco-construction sans précédent! Nous voulons nous regrouper dans le but de bâtir les maisons des uns et des autres à peu de frais et souhaitons aussi financer le projet en vendant ou en louant une ou plusieurs constructions.
    joignez-vous au projet! Nous ne voulons pas votre argent, c’est vous, vos idées, vos ressources, votre créativité et vos mains à la pâte que nous souhaitons rallier! Imaginez travailler avec un groupe de gens motivés, pleins de ressources à un projet qui offre de multiples bénéfices dont un domicile sain, à peu de frais et qui vous coûtera moins cher en matière d’énergie…

    Déjà, nous avons mis le groupe en ligne sur Facebook : visit http://www.facebook.com/?
    Vous pouvez également vous joindre à notre rencontre autour d’un café ou d’un rafraîchissement cet hiver http://meetu.ps/4Q7WY #OccupyTogether

    L’union fait la force
    L’action offre les résultats

    hi, I’m from Montréal also, speak french et english, looking for partner to get off the grid. I do have knowledge in food prep, long food storage, dehydration, free energy, construction (basic) and many more subjects … looking to start with some people projects to get off the grid. I’m willing to start a sustainable homestead with people who share this same goal and philosophy.

    Hi, I’m in southern Quebec (on the border, literally ) and I’ve been dreaming of such a “life” for about 3 yrs now … i read a lot about Earthships and food production, sustainability etc … but it seems unattainable. We are so stuck in that crappy system…it’s weird to say but I feel I don’t have the finances to go live a “cheap” life. What an aberration !!! I wish I knew all this before I got stuck with a mortgage and loans etc.
    …and everybody around here is blind or just don’t care … it freaks me out.

    With you or simply to share ideas here, I’m into gardening (fruits, vegetables, herbs), healing with proper food, herbs, building a strawbale house (paille et mortier) as I have helped others do it in the past, but I am not specialized. I am learning how to cook with solar energy (solar oven) and water dstillation in case the water in the area is not safe. My child and my girlfried are in
