Though I've been coming across these forums for many years, this is my first post.
I have just quit my job, taken my suits to the Salvation Army, and am off to Mexico to purchase land and start an Eco Village/IC. Pretty exciting times. I am now putting the call out to other parties who may be interested in co-creating. The more people involved, the more land, and of a higher quality, can be purchased. Please let me know if you're interested. You can follow the project on www.buildthefarm.org
-We are looking on the Pacific Mexican Coast (most likely Oaxaca)
-Lots will be owned by individuals, common land will be owned communally
-We will be close enough to civilisation to be commercially viable as a eco-tourism destination (Permaculture School, Yoga Retreat Centre, Eco-Lodge, etc.)
-Land and building prices in Mexico are incredibly cheap -- $10k gets you a lot, and you can put a small but comfortable house on it for another $10k.
Also, I will be in California and Oregon over the next few months before driving down to Mexico in October. Let me know if you would like to meet up and discuss.
