My partner and I dream of establishing a community land trust and building our Space of Love together there with others who want the same. We live in Maine and want to build this community here, somewhere, but we have yet to find others who share in our dream. Any Anastasia fans here open to creating their Space of Love in Maine?

Hi Izzy, that's great to hear! Are you currently living in Maine? What does your ideal community look like?

I recently moved to Greenbush in Penobscot county. Right now I have a 4 acre farm but much of my time is spent working to pay the bills. Where in Maine are you? Are you from Maine or did you move here recently?

I just looked up Ringing Cedars and it sounds alright for the most part though I don't recommend veganism.

Hi George! That area is one I've looked at as a possible place to live. Also Hampden, Ellsworth, Blue Hill, etc. I'm living in Danforth now, about 1.5 hours north of Greenbush. Cost of living here is super low but so is the opportunity for work. There are a few of us working to create jobs. I grew up in Maine and moved back last year after 11 years abroad. Now I'm ready to put down roots and build community. I see a lot of potential here and it would only take a handful of the right people to build a sweet life together.

Hi Isaiah, not sure if you read through this thread or if their might be any synergies between any of those folks and yourself.  Posted this for you just in case.  My wife and I love Ellsworth and the Blue Hill area.  We live in a beautiful state, no?

Also, have you looked into what the Piscataquis Village Project is trying to do?  I read about them a few years back.  Seems very interesting, but looking at their web site gave me the feeling that not much has been happening since 2014.  I'm not on facebook….maybe there's more in the way of updates there.  I love the idea of a small old world style walkable Maine ecovillage.  
 
For my next feat, I will require a volunteer from the audience! Perhaps this tiny ad?
