My fiance and I recently purchased a small piece of land in the Ozarks. We will be moving to the property June of this year. This is our first time owning land and starting our own off-grid haven, but we have lived off-grid with others before. We are starting absolutely from scratch. We don’t have much yet, just time, vision, and ambition. We are looking for 1 or 2 people (couples preferred, kids okay, pets okay if they get along with our son and dog) who share our passion. A bit about us: we are a young couple, our son is just two. We will (hopefully) produce most of the foods we eat, and buy what we can’t grow in bulk. We can not accommodate meat or cheese eaters. We want to create a sacred space for growth, learning, loving, living, spiritual and physical practice, cultural exploration, and peaceful meditation. We are on the path to becoming beacons of light in this world of darkness and confusion. (And we still have a long, long way to go!) Basically, we’re imperfect people working to become the best versions of ourselves that we can possibly be.

It will be LOTS and LOTS of hard work. I’m serious when I say we’re starting from scratch. If you are willing to really, truly rough it, and work hard for the best possible future, we want to talk to you. This summer we will be creating shelter, planting gardens, starting a food forest, building a rain catchment system, building an outdoor kitchen, and much, much more. Experience in creating off-grid spaces is preferred, but not required. Help us turn our dream (and yours!) into reality!
