[before_listing id=392 images= youtube=null] One of my biggest goals in life is to live off the grid but I don’t know how to. I am a 18 year old girl who lives in a suburban hellhole in nowhere Massachusetts. I am very fortunate to find this webite an I really need help finding information on how to live off the grid. I have no job and no money, and I have trouble dealing with depression. I would love to live in a warm place like Texas, New Mexico, Mexico, or california. If i’m not able to live in those places then I will still love to live in someplace where I can still be a vegan and grow my own food. I am looking for a community or just people that can help me. I don’t want to be a miserable corporate slave for the rest of my life and since the economy is going down the drain, I want to save myself before it’s too late. I could really use all of the help I could get, thank you so much for reading and for the future support.[landbuddy_listing id=392 youtube=null]

  1. Genevieve

    My name is Genevieve. I’m 33 this year, no partner, no children, I do however live with a cat I call Schnuffy, on my boat (Bryony) on the River Thames, London.
    I am obsessed about earthships and would love to live near a fresh water spring and build a load of earthships with a community of people who are manifesting similar things.

    My aim is to live in harmony with the earth and live off of what’s in the garden.

    My boat sunk a couple of years ago and I’m doing her up, so if anyone has boat building or carpentry, plumbing or welding talents and would like to live in London whilst exchanging talents, please get in touch with subject BRYONY CARE AND LIVE-ABOARD gendunne@gmail.com

    The living space is small, but it’s fun, like camping with a log burning stove.

    Hoping to get to connect with some people who are interested in the same lifestyle and ideals in life.

    If you’re in a vegan community in England I’d love to come visit you and see if my energy is a good match for your space 🌻🔮💗

    Magic, light and love out to one and all xxxx

  2. Christian Sumner

    Hello everyone my name is Christian I am a vegan of almost a whole year now and throughout this life change I have found myself becoming more aware of my surroundings, enslavement of humanity and how brainwashed we are. I want to find myself disconnecting completely from social media and living a fully raw vegan diet off the land and off the grid as a minimalist. I want to know if there are any place you can work to live at. maybe an off grid vegan community.

  20. Kirstine

    Hey I’m 22 years old from Essex, UK. I’ve been vegan for only 6 months, but in this 6 months I’ve been awakened to the real world and I just cannot live in this matrix anymore. Me and my partner (who is also a raw awake vegan) are looking for a vegan community to eventually settle down in, somwhere where we will be happy to raise our children. I cannot think of anything worse than to raise my children to live in this cruel, brainwashed world. We are currently planning on building our own mini trailer home so we can go off grid and travel but this dream seems so far away without the money to build it! Feel free to email me! I am very interested in joining a vegan community or even just to speak to like minded people.

  21. taetm

    Wow we have so much in common…I wish you posted this in 2015 so I could have met you. I’m the same as you, well back in 2011 anyways. Now I’m trying to go off the grid before shit hits the fan..im really scared, desperate, and hopeless. I hope you made it out…

  22. Andre Wilmore

    Hi guys, I’m a hippie, vegan, balanced God a co-creator, a lover of live, I am illuminated which means to me knowing how much you don’t know. I am into spirituality and the power of now, and the power within and learning about the universe and the laws. I am tired of society, I am tired of waking up in this matrix. I was always an inquisitive being. I really need help on the balanced places, where i can be by a stream, good soil, food, and the earth is already my shelter I am good on that. I also decree to be around the people who share my values as in moving off the grid.
    email me at andre.wilmore@gmail.com

    Andre Wilmore,

  25. Cher-Ami

    Looking for a place to settle down for good. As I do NOT like leaving my gardens. My daughter and I are organic, vegan (striving for raw/vegan), love animals (NOT to kill), want to build a small cob home, access to fresh clean water, mild climate a and live near (not too close) to like-minded, compassionate human beings that want to care for our planet.

  26. Victoria

    Conscious Awakened Holistic Vegan here as well! Looking to live a life, off-grid, with like Vegan/Raw Vegan folk. I’m in FL and though there are options here, I think we’re all falling into the same category of wanting to part the typical controlled lifestyle of work slavery controlled by the Gov. Contact me if you are living this life now in a vegan community and are looking for more to join in. I believe the World is changing and our nutrition/health is what will be the determining factor in who survives. Essential Oils are also key.

  27. Holly

    I too have experienced a spiritual awakening and no longer resonate with the insanity if the enslavement of the Rat Race. I have wanted to breakaway and live a natural self sustaining lifestyle with like minded individuals for many years. My talents are in healing: Mind-Body-Spirit. My background/ education is in the medical field (RN, BSN) but I have been studying natural health and healing, herbs, nutrition, mind-body medicine, and healing with essential oils for 7 years. I also have interest in training as a midwife, master herbalist, organic gardening, fermenting, sprouting, and foraging. My passions also lie in writing and expression through art. My father owns 250 acres of land backed up to Mark Twain National Forest with springs running through it in Southwest Missouri in the US.

  28. Adrian

    I own a fairly large home on 6 acres in the mountains in Costa Rica just outside San Jose that I need a family including some mature adults to occupy. You will need some sort of income as you will need to buy things to care for the house, you will need to pay for food until you can learn to grow enough of it and pay for electricity. Email me if you are past the dreaming stage at adriancrane7@gmail.com.

  29. Taylor McCloskey

    I need a off grid fruititarian /raw vegan/vegan place ASAP! I plan to move to the jungle, so it will only be temporary. PLEASE HELP! Call me! 5074919344

  32. Mark

    Great , there other people who desire to live simple , honest & healthy … While respecting all Earthlings big and small … What is a life without compassion ?? A life without compassion is what we have in the big cities now !!! & spreading outwards …

  33. Robyn

    I am so happy I found this website!! My husband and I, both 31, have been chan for two years and our eyes have been opened so much to what is happening in the world. We both feel like we can not be a part of a society we no longer have faith in, can no longer try to fit into a way of life that no longer makes any sense. I feel like every day I wake up, put on a mask, repeat the expected lines, and move on automatic, as if my mind isn’t even in it anymore. I don’t want this. I want to live my life in a way that I believe in. I want to live in a community of other people who share the same realization and passions as I do. While so much of this world seems intent on leaving a mark on this planet I would rather my life be like a passing breath moving over the earth, I don’t want to leave any footsteps behind me. I want to live a life o meaning, purpose, and most of all compassion. I am looking for a community of vegans/vegetarians living naturally, off the grid, in a sustainable Eco village. Like most people here I have no money but what I make each week, which is not barely enough now to cover our bills. I don’t want to care about money. I don’t want my worth as a human being to be measured by the contents o my wallet. I want to be free. I want to be with others who, like myself and my husband, have found our humanity and are not willing to sacrifice it in the name of wealth or class or fitting in. We are ready to make a stand by stepping outside the box that was designed for us, contructed at birth and maintained by fear and oppression. Our lives have value only if we recognize the value in all life, and live accordingly. Is there anyone else out there with this same conviction beating in their heart? We can all work together to sustain a way of live that we believe in, that is kind and free. All we need is a direction and the will to travel down that path. I want to make this happen! If there is anyone else out there, serious about a life off the grid, please let me know!

  34. Yasmine

    Hello fellow veggies :) I’m an 18 year old girl in Canada. I finished high school a few months ago and took a year off to work (currently doing), all to save up for my future adventures and a sustainable lifestyle. I would love to live in a tropical destination with likeminded (awakened) souls. I do understand that it is important to make the right connects that could give me this opportunity. Pleaseee email me – yasmineA12@hotmail.com. Love and light !

  37. Nia R

    Hi, I am a vegan for 12 years now. Currently 18 and moved from NYC to Portland, Oregon a few weeks ago. All I want to do is start something like this. All we vegans/vegetarians can live together on a land just growing and living the right life. If anyone has anything now feel free to email me at niarodriguez.8895@gmail.com I’d love to join!

  38. Dean

    The goal is to buy some cheap land, there is some to be had, in upstate New York, and get it going in the summer, and live a freegan life in NYC as needed, meet people, network, and solicit donations. I have property in Florida now, 2 acres, my business partner goes there from time to time to plant fruit and nut trees. Email me if you want more info.

  39. Margaret

    I’m only 16, but this is all i really want to do, I’ve been a vegan for years, and if this is active, I’d love to participate in an off the grid vegan community to avoid ever being a wage slave. This is ideal!

  40. Sheldon

    hi I am a 22 year old being from Norfolk, VA & I’ve been yearning to be free & live off the land like we creatures we’re intended to. I am also a vegan. on my last leg in society jobless thinking about leaving everyday I wake up. if there are any vegan communities out there living off the land I would love to join please email me. I am to venture away back home to nature 13love

  41. nico

    i seriously love the idea of vegan only communities! I would only be comfortable with vegans though, no stealing what is not mine for dairy, eggs etc. I do a ton of activism so that is my only problem, i still need to be able to go out and fight for the animals. hmmm so lovely though.

  42. Brooke

    Hi if this is still active I live in Fort Smith, Arkansas where the climate is ideal for growing all sorts of food. I am on the road to veganism and would like to live off the grid for the same reasons as not being a corporate slave. I am 20 and work 30+ hours a week with a growing distaste for people that care nothing about anything but themselves and have been desperately searching for a safe group of people to live with or communicate with and get to know and collab with. I am not wanting to move because I see Arkansas as a very fit place for the lifestyle and would love if you would contact me to see if we could work something out.

  43. shontay

    i want to get off the grid too i am a vegan i live in minnesota let me know if i can help or if you can help me namaste

  44. Slacs

    I am looking at homelessness soon.
    I have no paying job, only the job of helping animals. And so, no money!
    I will be traveling, if and when that happens,to find a peaceable place. of course I am vegan, but I would like to learn more about these vegan communities to see if they coincide with what I need and my beliefs of anti-capitalism.

  45. Kenneth Quinn

    Living with vegans and growing our own food is my dream. :)

  47. Ashley

    I am in the same boat as Kristian V. . I would also love some information .

  48. Kristian V

    Hello, I just stumbled upon the website because I am also very interested in living off the grid. I currently live in RI, I have a job but very little money. I am also vegan and I am interested in an offgrid vegan community, I think thats a great idea. Any information is extremely helpful.

  49. jordan fanning

    I live in Cumberland, RI. I basically just read this and felt like i wrote it myself. I am looking to do this same thing. I’m 18, depressed, and I need to get out! I’m willing to travel and especially somewhere warm. I’m fine with living in a tent for a while and hitching rides whenever, but I cannot travel alone being a girl and all. feel free to email me if this is still valid!

  50. dan

    I’m a raw vegetarian, out here in Peru, where fertile warm land is as cheap as a second hand car.
    The weather allows anything to be grown due to its mild climate here in the Lima metropolitan area and the best part is Peru has all the organic tropical fruits and veggies you could possibly think of. I’m not currently off grid but i will be soon. It’s always good to know like minded people though.

    • margaret Mouton

      Hello dan, I am very interested in moving to peru I want to live completely off grid with my boyfriend and cat, and hopefully find a community of raw vegans that we can collaborate with. I do not want to live in over populated areas of peru, but I need help knowing what areas i should look into. Do you have any ideas? Thank you

    • Genevieve

      I’d love to move over.

      Have you got many English people in your community?

    RagaMuffin I posted earlier about out veggie/vegan community we are trying to get going. please contact me MudMaverick@TexasNaturalBuilders.info

  55. David Reed

    we are trying very hard to get our community started, but we are finding the only people that seem to be interested are meat eaters, we would love to have a veggie/vegan community where we can all be comfortable and not worry about the murder and consumption of animals. We are vegetarian and do consume honey, cheese and eggs on occasion, if you are comfortable with that then maybe our community is for you RaggaMuffin!
