Somehow, within the international sphere going basically hay-wire, Colombia is progressing when it comes to land use and proprietary laws.

Taking full advantage of this, I've bought a 1.6 hectare plot of virgin forest, full of wild fruit trees (and even wilder wildlife) and I'm shooting for an organic farm, a dream permaculture project, as well as conservation and hostel project, worked on by the local community and willing volunteers. Check out our project video on the tube:

We're running workshops, getting involved with a huge cleanup project and other community plans, and designing nice basic bamboo treehouses for guests and volunteers. We aim to grow everything consumed on site within 3 years using permaculture-based growing and cultivating techniques we have learnt over the last ten years, mixed harmoniously with local techniques. ≈ In 3 months we will have mapped, cleared, planned, prepared and be producing on the farm. We will be building the main hostel structure as of April; with a view of having a two-storey structure live-in ready by July.
Within 6 months the main structure will be mounted and the hostel taking it's first volunteers.

We need your help to reach our project's target. Please contribute here igg.me/at/feelfreehostel to claim your little slice of paradise! Like us on Facebook.com/feelfreehostel for special offers etc! @FEELFREE

Howdy Dan, welcome to permies!  I have added you post to a couple of other forums to help spread the news.

I have always wondered about living in other countries could you tell me more about how that works, owning/buying land, immigration etc.
 
That feels good. Thanks. Here's a tiny ad:
