Our small, well-established, self-reliant homestead in the coastal Pacific Northwest can accommodate another couple and, as we retired here nearly 20 years ago, we would appreciate the help of some younger hands. We are actively seeking a couple (preferred) or an established single (considered), who are/is paying attention to geopolitics, the financial crisis, climate disruption, and the collapse of industrial civ, and yearning to be free of the “matrix”.

We are offering a nice place to live, a wealth of practical experience, knowledge and skills in a diversity of fields, a non-partisan, big-picture, Nature-based lifestyle out of sync with the system, and a shared ownership in our established 3-acre rural homestead on the beautiful coast of the Pacific Northwest. Our goal has been to become self-sufficient and resilient by building a “lifeboat” to weather the gathering storm clouds of economic, social, political and environmental collapse.

Once a traditional country estate, our property is now home to the Titanic Lifeboat Academy and fully equipped with solar PV & thermal, a wind turbine, rain water catchment & well water, wood heat, a producing orchard, wood lot & forest, fenced pasture, large vegetable garden, greenhouses, poultry and dairy goats, with room for whatever other possibilities NTHE permits. A newer horse barn with a nicely appointed apartment loft compliments the original large Tudor house on a hilltop with a scenic view of the river.

We seek partners who are healthy, physically fit (able to help with strenuous physical work for several hours), mature and free of addictions (including "smart" phones & commercial TV), and non-smoking. No recreational drugs, minimal alcohol, have prior experience with--or willing and able to learn and adopt--a simple, self-reliant lifestyle, capable of making a long-term commitment, willing to merge your resources with ours, preferably without dependent children, educated (knowledge of Deep Ecology and Permaculture principles a plus), passionate about learning (academic as well as hands-on), and aware that life on Earth is now most likely measured in years rather than decades.

Please, no seasonal, temporary, or “learning experience” inquiries as our popular internship program has been discontinued. If you are ready to leave the system, we offer a shared place to shelter during collapse. It’s a very good place to face for whatever comes next. If you’re looking for such a place to share with like-minded folks, we’re looking for you. We are grateful to all who consider our offer and respond. To respect (and save) both your time and ours, we will reply only to serious inquiries which seem to align with our path.

You may contact us through our website: https://titaniclifeboatacademy.org/contact-us

Thank you,

Christopher & Caren
Titanic Lifeboat Academy

Hello Christopher and Caren. I understand those things about collapse, which is very much a reality to face, and which is hard for me to find others to talk about with, even here at this forum site. I am in urban civilization, and see need to get out from it, and to be independent from it soon with doing that. I still see it needing community with others involved in it. There should be others seeing this that would then be available for it. But I really have it hard finding them. I would be glad to be on land already for that.

About me, I am single, admittedly not young, but motivated and able to work for that. I am not given to addictive substances, have quit things long ago and live clean. I don't use any thing from animals and could work at growing all things that could be grown and are useful. I would live simply with simple living arrangements and seek the things that are sustainable while knowing with that missing where there is civilization collapse would come.
The only cure for that is hours of television radiation. And this tiny ad:
