Looking to get off the grid? Looking to start an intentional community or join one?

I sure am! Here's an easy way to find others who are doing/thinking the same thing -

Liberty farms

I have transitioned off-grid and it was worth the hard work. I type on my iPad by candlelight. I'm lucky to have enough reception to post. I used to make songs now I make vegetables. Good ones. I have used that directory to try to find other communities with younger people and in more interesting locations. I want to build a cob house with some people that are as "far out" as me.

Preppergroups.com is a good site as well.

Re: cob houses

I want to build a few myself (or Tabby houses), and rent them out to like-minded folk...but that's after I learn MUCH more about different farming techniques and such, and figure *where* I'd actually do it.

NH is great and all, but the intentional communities around here are either too restrictive, too authoritarian, or just too weird for my tastes.

Thing is, I'd probably have to go to Utah/Idaho/Wyoming do actually do it, since land is MUCH cheaper in those places.

Will look into preppergroups, thanks.

Different farming techniques

You should check out my comment on this thread about efficient farming methods.

I would probably like the weird IC's in NH.

Safe Havens. Communities of people that move to areas of their choice with their own resources to buy land in the area etc. Surrounded by other folks of similar mindset of Constitutional and God given rights.

I like to argue with the Administrator of this site from time to time when he concentrates to heavily on things that aren't helpful peaceful living, but I like the concept of what's going on here for the most part.

Just a suggestion

Might wanna place that link in the body of the text below. It's a pain in the butt to copy it and it won't forward to the site like that.

I quit doing that a little while back myself.

Thanks for the link though, seems like a cool site. I've thought about starting a community for libertarians on my property. The land is big enough for many cabins and has fresh water, plenty of woods and a view of the Alaskan range.

Still kind of mulling it over.

Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution, inevitable.

Thanks, I didn't realize

it would do that. Must be too late to edit it so maybe folks will catch it here.

Sorry all, won't do that again.

I love Alaska man, sounds like paradise to me! Definitively keep us posted on your decision. (I love fresh Alaska pics if you ever post any up too!)

I'll make sure I do.

I plan on doing some film and pictures and maybe even a blog to post them. One way or another I'll make sure I post them here.

Zak C, check carefully before you commit yourself!

I interpreted for several international "interns / farm & ranch helpers", who signed up to work at several different locations through Moses Lake, WA community college back in '90s. Perhaps 1/3 to half of the "interns" felt trapped into one-to-two years of indentured service under harsh conditions.

Good point

My son interned on an organic farm in Whitefish Montana. Go look at a map - that would be farming the glaciers....
Anyway, it was pretty much slave labor. They got fed organic food, and that was pretty much "the wages." They were "housed" - in run down cottages with no heat, only the "bunk house" had power, toilet and water. They got a little money, but it was like $20 a week. My son was up there working with some old high school friends, they made the most of it and he learned a LOT about organic farming. He came home just as broke as he left though, and if we had not paid the cost to pick him up he would have had to hitch-hike home.

Hmm. It's interesting

but some of the communities in my area are really...odd.

One of the farms close to me states that I must worship Mother Earth and yadda yadda, and that the "elders" will do the the decision making for me. No thanks!

I dunno though, I wouldn't mind working/living on one for a while so I can learn the ropes first hand. I'd just assume buy my own farmland afterward, maybe build some cob houses and rent them out on the cheap.

You're my kinda guy.

We hope to be set up to take interns in a few years. Look me up then. I don't WANT a commune. I want MY farm. I want my neighbors to have THEIR farm. I want people who wake up and think "DAMN! I need a FARM!" to have a place where they can go learn how to get started, and leave with the knowledge and starts and seeds and such to go start their own farm.
I'll put you to work today if you want to live in an unheated greenhouse and take your pay in chickens... your first cob project can the mass for the greenhouse heater... lol!

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Yeah

We seem to have similar goals in mind. I want MY farm, BUT I would be willing to take on interns, and/or provide affordable housing for those in need.

But first, I have to figure out what the heck I'm doing, heh.

Who knows, I might actually take you up on the offer come spring, when I plan on renting out my (too small for farming) property and hitting the road, as I like to do. Wanderlust has taken me to some pretty interesting places, to say the least!

I just found that site yesterday...

And have already been invited to try my hand at being a farm hand! I'm prety excited!

Where are you going?

We are taking a different tack. We bought our farm, we don't want any ambiguity about who owns the farm. We hope to take "interns" on, and when a person leaves their internship we can set them up with starts and seeds from the season they worked, and they can get a jump start on planting their own farm.
Big dreams, one day they may come to pass - for now, pretty much a patch of dirt. But farming is the shortest path to real liberty, glad you're on the trail!

That's amazing man.
