I am a 27 year portuguese and i would like to join others in an off grid, sustainable, self sufficient venture. For the past 4 years i have been gathering all the information that i could about all these topics, from permaculture, natural building to self sufficiency, ecovillages, intentional communities and off grid living. All ideas i identify with.
Currently i still am part of the capitalist society mainly to have some capital to start this venture. I have worked from carpenter, teacher to designer and supervisor. Just to show you that a decision like this does not come lightly to me, its is truly something that i believe in, something that is calling for me to do and i believe i have the attitude and skills to join a community that might be starting, or is established, and bring good things to the ones involved.
Central America seems a perfect place, mainly for the climate and the overall environment, although with its own challenges seems that one can have a more naturalistic approach.
Europe is also a place i would like to go off grid, mainly because i am portuguese and understand the climate and environment of southern countries.
Hopefully i would have caught your attention and interest, i am very positive person and have great work ethics, as i understand that something like this would require great work and knowledge and know that it would be way better to not do it alone.
