Hello Christian,
Once I get back from consulting on this project in Joshua Tree, I'll drop you an email to discuss you and your partner visiting.

Respectfully,
Scott

We're putting down roots currently in the Lake Elsinore/Wildomar/Murrieta areas, but would love to visit your Riverside property whenever possible.
And we would likely be very happy to help with any properties you ever work with in those areas (or Hemet/Temecula).
I have one PDC under my belt from Quail Springs an ecovillage of sorts in the CA high desert.
And am about to start their "land-based living" online course (their website link if anyone's interested: https://www.quailsprings.org/)

My email is christian.wolird@gmail.com

We use completely Sustainable methods. In fact, I teach a wide variety of them at the Riverside property and will be seeing up an educational facet to the Ecovillage project.

Thanks. I am in a neighboring county, I will figure out some time to come there for a tour and for discussing the sustainable methods, those are important. And such ways should certainly be available for many as such change is needed. I will communicate by email to, I am at vegrox@aol.com

If it works that I can be involved in this I want to bring lots of seeds for things I really think of growing, and would seek to use natural farming, to work at it. I will really try growing all that I would want for eating and maybe more to share, as that would be what I plan to come to have for the food I have.

UPDATE ON SOUTH CAROLINA PROJECT:
Just found out that the owner of the South Carolina property didn't currently have a clear title to the land. It's in a minor legal quagmire, so more than likely we'll be passing on any further involvement with it.

However, we do have 2 - 2.5 acres properties about 15 minutes west of Barstow that will be working to develop into ecovillages. This will happen as we continue to look for a much larger property elsewhere.

The Riverside location is still accepting volunteers that would like to learn about Permaculture, homesteading, and sustainable practices.

Hello Dani,
The Riverside property is in a residential area. Great cell & internet services. We work with a lot of WWOOF volunteers and have some RV parking.

Message me directly and we can discuss details of you visiting.

Respectfully,
Scott

Dani Jacquelyne wrote:Hi! I'd be super interested in doing a part time work /trade at your property in Riverside. I have a self contained converted Sprinter camper. My hope is to work and learn hands on permaculture to eventually start my own back East. I work remotely full time so I'm curious about your cell service in the area. But other than that, open to meeting with you all and seeing if it's a good fit.

Hello Jeremy,
Let me know the dates and we can go from there. Should be able to make space for you here.

Coastal properties are insanely expensive and also the general cost of living is much higher. You don't have to go too far inland to see a major price drop and if you're willing to go a little off the beaten path you can find some place that can be turned into paradise. There's also ways to get properties for cheap. Especially those not usually seen as worth much.

I've purchased several for progressive development for potential long-term income. The cost of building traditionally is expensive right now, but there's a lot of alternative methods that can be worked out with the various cities and counties, if you're willing to put in the effort.

South Carolina is going to be one of the big changes properties, once it's really started.

Hello Jeremy,
Yes, we've made a lot of major moves to get things really rolling. Very exciting times!

I'm uploading some photos of the current Riverside install. Nearly 4 years into a 5 year install and running 6-8 months behind. Slight difference between the before and current.

I've a few properties you can do overnight and weekend stays and possibly the Riverside location for longer. This is based on the size of the RV. I usually trade camping space for labor. Part of my education program. Let me know if that works for you.

I might have a property you'd be interested in as well.

Hello Jeremy,
Depending on which property your referring to, as I'm currently still working on the one in Riverside and other California properties locations throughout this summer and autumn.

Late Winter or early Spring is when I'm looking to go out to South Carolina and continue the progress.

If you look at my reply to the other's earlier post, you'll read up on some of the awesome things that have happened since my original post. It's going to help the ecovillage projects massively!

I look forward to reading your reply.
