Hello,
I'm searching for a community without wifi and preferably without electricity.  I  have severe environmental illness which includes chemical and electrical sensitivities.  I am unable to live in high elevations am interested in finding something in the southeastern united states.  Even if there are no established communities I'm open to any ideas on how to live the permaculture lifestyle.  I have zero experience living this lifestyle but this is the only form of safe housing/lifestyle that I can think of.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.  Thanks for reading.  Anna

Welcome to Permies, Anna.  

The one community that comes immediately to mind was just brought to my attention recently:  Here's an article in Mother Earth News about The Possibility Alliance  

A friend visited there and she fell absolutely in love with the place.  She was from Canada, however, and did not want to move to the U.S. permanently.  The Possibility Alliance is not in the South East, but it otherwise fits your bill, I think.  Good luck in your search.

I am based in Europe, and would be interested in getting to know people wanting to live in places/areas/communities where there is no Wifi. Although I do not really have a problem with electricity, I do like to minimise it's presence, or to create areas (within the community) that could be free from it. I am now based in Germany, but I am open to different countries (and continents).
I would like to buy land with some sort of house/farm, but I realise I would like to live with others in a community-like area (but where the residents still have their own space). I am quite flexible concerning arrangements, but Wifi is not an option for me to have around. I am always open to discussions, so please pm me if you want to discuss this further.

Thank you for the recommendations.  I am looking to join a permie community asap.   Lana, I'm open to corresponding if you would like to and maybe come up with some ideas for a safe housing community for those with environmental sensitivities.
 
I don't like that guy. The tiny ad agrees with me.
