My question is, can I squat on an Island on BC west coast that is crown land and own it after a year? if not how can I get an island (crown land) free, or do you have to buy it now? I just want to get away for good, be self-sufficient and built a nice get away cottage with a dock for my parents and sister. I know one that has a half moon bay for a boat n dock area. its perfect.

Steven Johnson wrote:Kobyn, That's the way, just do it. I looked at your website. I like your idea of a world wide network of eco village farms. Have you thought about how it will be structured legally? For example, if someone went there and did something nice, for example made a nice little underground house with an attached greenhouse and started living in it, could they keep living there forever. Will you want them to contribute anything to help buy more places?
I have 30 acres in Missouri and would like to do something similar, but I want it to have some well defined parameters to prevent someone from taking it over and keeping others out.
And of course someone who puts a lot of work into a place wants to be protected from being evicted.

I am interested in going and volunteering somewhere where I can get a feel for permaculture and learn so me new things. I get the sense that the further north I am willing to go, the more effort that the people inviting me make to offer attractive work conditions. And vice versa, the closer to Vancouver, the less attractive the conditions...
