We have recently joined up with some folks to build an EcoVillage. Some of us will be in vehicles, some will build private eco friendly houses from natural and recycled materials and some want to be in more communal homes built the same way. There are 30 of us (as of now) going in on a piece of land and we do have the rights to build all the crazy things we wanna build under a funny loophole in the building codes, and RV rights too!
The place is a 75 acre horse farm (without the horses tho!) has a big barn that will be turned into a fabrication workshop/art school, a house and three apartments that will be rented to like minded folks. We wanna have fun and be mostly off the grid but not outcasted in some mountain somewhere well away from civilization. If you’re interested check out the mission statement here: http://catalystecovillage.org/ we are still looking for dedicated people to join the fun. You can also see http://wp.me/p1Z51g-8P as it explains a bit about how we found what we were looking for.
Some of the community businesses to pay for the land will include renting the shared workshops, having an artist retreat, teaching DIY sustainability, dance, yoga, arts, survival skills, making biodiesel, kambucha and more to come. There are too many community income ideas in the works to list them all....
Thanks for reading and do check it out as we're serious about living free.
PS: We are Doers….this is happening now and the ball is rolling, so who’s in?
