I am partnering with a friend to buy a plot of land and we are open to including other like minded individuals whom may be interested in joining us. We are most likely going to structure the place as a non-profit, so that anyone who is interested in investing in this project would be apportion a percentage of ownership of the business. We are currently located in Baltimore, Maryland and presently considering locations in Maryland and Virginia, although we have looked at property in Tennessee, and Ecuador.
We are self funded, looking to purchase approximately 10+ acres to build a project similar to http://livinginthefuture.org/
So far we have budgeted $50-$80K budget for the land, which should leave us a sufficient cash reserve to building, planting, etc.
Our intention is to purchase the land in the next 3-4 months.
If you think you may be interested in what we're attempting, say hello.
