[before_listing images= youtube=null] My husband, 2 yr old son, and I are looking to move off-grid as soon as the right opportunity is found! We are most interested in Hawaii or other places that are warm year round. More importantly than that is our desire to get away from processed and packaged foods, trying to live right off the land. We have combined gardening/pruning skills, I have some minor medical training and love to cook! We are 25 and 26 and very calm and quiet. We enjoy remote locations, and would like to totally remove any need of money and cars.[landbuddy_listing youtube=null]

    I am 25, my wife is 20, we are looking to move off grid, and are looking for possible communities that we could join. I am a skilled handyman and grew up on a large crop producing farm and have extensive knowledge with animals and some knowledge of utilizing solar power. My wife is an amazing cook, with extensive gardening knowledge and home building techniques. Please email me if there is any information I could be made aware of.

    Hi I’m 26 living in LA and keep finding myself pulling away from the lifestyle here and found all over the country. I don’t really desire to participate in our American culture as I have seen, maybe I’m not finding the right niche but either way I feel this pressure to work and produce things i don’t believe in, I think mainstream America is built on excess and generally people seek and want things they really don’t need, at the same time don’t realize or know its not going to fulfill them.
    I believe there is a healthy positive livable way we can exist in the world that has limitless potential and it would look a lot more like sustainable communities.
    I wish i could experience the earth w/o all of the concrete and plastic .
    I am very interested in sustainable living and want to know more , please contact me if you would want to talk about it.

    I am in search for CHRISTIAN Families who are willing to live OFF GRID. I am not talking about “Partly” off Grid. I mean Off Grid.
    “OFF GRID” To live away from the society, government, rules and regulations of common towns and cities. To live a healthy simple life away from today’s Godless, Spoiled, lazy, resentful, fast paced, Greedy, sexually perverted, DE-moralized, prejudice Society.
    This is not an attempt to start a CULT. But rather an attempt to bring God loving Christians together to praise and glorify God and raise there children in manner of which they grow to believe in and Love Jesus Christ according to the King James version Bible.
    To Protect them from the Evils, Perversions and Temptations of what the world now excepts as Idealistic.

    There will be the use of shortwave radio, generators, solar,etc.
    No phone lines, no corporate electrical power lines, No city water, will exist on the property.
    You will basically be willing to live off the land as the 1800’s settlers did.
    We will raise our own crops, cattle, chickens, Cook from scratch, Can our food, process our own meat, sew our own clothes, hand wash clothes, Hunt for our food, use of out houses to preserve water, etc… Generators will be used as necessary ( gas is expensive.)
    Regular Church services will be held. Your FAITH in God needs to be STRONG.
    You need to be willing to work, help each other, respect each other.

    We are looking for people with at least (1) or more of the following skill sets.
    Carpenter, Gardener, Hunter, Meat processor, Seamstress, Small engine mechanic,

    This is a Group Adventure where everyone will be expected to carry there own weight. Must be beneficial to the group in some way. We are looking for “FAMILIES”
    Must be Married, expecting or with children. (Our children will need playmates and friends.)
    We don’t want Baptists, Methodists, Church of Christ, Lutheran, etc…
    The only religion we need is Christianity. I don’t mean to be coy…..But different Denominations are what separate the Church. The Church Being Followers of Christ.
    In this world today…If “Christians” would Read the bible and live according to its word, Not the parts you Like or read past the parts you don’t like, But as GODS HOLY WORD AS A WHOLE, Our world would be ran by God Through Christians instead of what we have today.
    If you are a Democrat…….THIS IS NOT A PLACE FOR YOU !! IF YOU LIKE OBAMA…

    Hi, check-out the directory provided by the Fellowship for Intentional Communities. You can also search by location.

    http://directory.ic.org/iclist/cmtylist_newest.php

    I’m also providing a link to Rancho Amigo below. They are currently giving land away for those who want to build. They have a great project in a warm climate and are looking for members.

    Howdy Friends…Currently I am in the process of organizing an Eco-Friendly Intentional Community, located in the South Pacific within the Islands of Vava’u Tonga. The website which is attached to my Comment Registration is in the process of being updated…the initial idea for Camp Tonga was as an Eco-Camp with Playa-Domes as the primary “housing units”…now, the plans have been altered to accommodate a “village” of Converted Shipping Containers, with fresh running H2O -(cold & hot), electricity -(solar & wind), etc.
    if this sounds like something that you would be interested in learning more about, email me and I can update you as to the progress of my efforts…I plan on being in Tonga by no later than the end of this Nov, where I have a rented house to serve as my base camp while I prepare Camp Tonga for official living.

    Chat soon. Best Luck.
    JB
