Is there any interest in the permies world into collaborative development of land that is not being used but is owned by someone else ("squatting")?
potentially nomadic habitation
Alex Michaud wrote:My thoughts regarding squatting were more along the lines of living in the national forest and moving between multiple shelters made of natural materials with a small group of people essentially trying to support the ecosystems present there and increasing the presence of species which provide appropriate foods for humans. That came from reaching out to multiple communities over the course of years and being ignored by nearly all of them combined with the fact that ownership is an invisible structure that can easily be dismantled by a variety of environmental changes and it doesn't make sense in my opinion to spend the amount of time it'd take to get money to spend on the concept of ownership when I could just try to find somewhere to live where my presence won't disturb anyone. Then of course I think it would be exceedingly difficult to live in that manner alone so I thought, why not try and find other people who may be in a similar situation as myself even though that seems really unlikely?
Since I made this post I have fortunately found what seem to be a couple promising connections near where I was hoping to go to help other people with their regenerative design projects in exchange for a place to camp during the warm season.
since those things came up I definitely would prefer a collaborative arrangement rather than going alone into the mountains and either surviving somehow or dying out there alone.
It's a tiny ad. At least, that's what she said.
