I'm a single guy with lots of skills looking to either buy some land or join a community with similar goals.

I'd like to create a wellness retreat based on the principles of Gerson therapy (basically involves a protocol of juicing and vegetarian meals to cleanse the body and heal disease).

I'm interested in places outside of the USA and open to Central or South America, the Caribbean.. places like Mexico, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic.

Looking for people with similar goals who either have an existing community that would be a good fit or want to partner up on a project like this.

I'm gearing up to leave the country for the winter to start my search so I'm open to suggestions, travel partners or anything that might help me on my journey.

Hello Anand. Thank you for the opportunity. I'm in Northern California at the moment.

It sounds like you have a nice thing going there in Vegas.. I normally tend to gravitate toward rural living but possibly as a short term thing. It's hard for me to imagine a food forest in a downtown area. I'd love to see some pics of the place. Most urban areas have rules about keeping chickens or livestock.. is Vegas cool with that sort of thing?

Feel free to PM me. We can chat a bit more and trade email addresses.

love nor cal. i lived on the peninsula for a while. it's pretty ideal up there. why leave???
we just got back from the heirloom festival in sonoma and brought back some plants to experiment with in our climate!

a lot of las vegas is actually unicorporated county land, so restrictions are very loose - that is how and why the whole 'strip' was born...
but we are downtown, so we have a few more restrictions. we do not have livestock, however, we know you can have chickens - we just have not set that up yet. our primary goal is show that you can grow a lot on a small urban plot. we also teach now and then about raw foodism.

ultimately we are thinking that it would be nice to homestead on another spot on the planet, too. so would like to keep in touch with your findings - i hope you will report them back here.

i will also pm you with my email...

Hola,

We are starting a community shared space in one of the islands near Bocas del Toro in Panama, the place has lots of potential and we can always use some help around the cacao farm and food forest, please check out some of the activities that we are doing at www.mayapoint.wordpress.com

Good luck on your search!!
