Hello

My partner and I (both late twenties) have been travelling and volunteering on farms for two years, and now that she is pregnant we are looking for a place to live and start a small farm, where we would have the freedom of starting our own projects and aim towards self-sufficiency. We are not so into the esoteric but passionate about living with nature. We have experience and great interest in eco-building, forest gardening, rocket mass heaters ...all this permie crap!     Preferably we would like to stay with other same-minded people in a community/village/area, with communal garden/activities, having social connections without losing personal space...

Could anyone recommend any such places in Europe, particularly somewhere green (after spending some time in sparse dry and hot areas we have come to the conclusion that its not for us) and maybe even with alternative schooling possibilities?



We really appreciate if anyone could make recommendations. Please feel free to ask us whatever is on your mind!

You could visit us in the Abkhazian mountains. Homeschooling is possible and there is plenty of water, temperate climate and a lot of sun (unless there isn't). No building regulations.

We're looking for co-founders for our ecovillage in Panama - altho it seems you're set on Europe, just thought I'd let you know of the option.
