Hi All, I received this information and was asked to pass it on:
First email: Hi,mike,i'm joshua.I live in mfangano island.My occupation is
farming.Amongest my farm produce are fruits.I Produce
If this is legitimate I would *love* to be a part of such a place. Not just to sit around and eat for free, but I'd help plant more trees and other fruits as well to make it even more of a paradise. If/when you see it and have photos, make sure to post them when you can!
Hey didn't send me any photos really (just two bad phone camera photos which don't really count). The fruitarians on the island have put up photos, I posted a link to their facebook page earlier in the forum. All the info is there for you to get a hold of him and them. I haven't met any of the people, so I can't comment much more than that, except that it was recommended through a friend!
I don't think they have property tax, it's an island surrounded by fresh water lake, probably be lots of water there. You'll have to speak to the people there, I'm just the messenger :)
Lots of info here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Fruitarian-Paradise-in-Africa/1409358...
Apparently one can become a resident within 3 years.
Cool here is a link to his facebook page for his farm: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Tropical-fruits-at-Joshuas-natural-ho...
Another update email from Joshua: Hi mike,thanks for to me.Malaria is quite an heard of in mfangano
island although there are many precautions in place enforced by the
government.Fruits are there in mfangano all the year round though
there are times the production is low and would be bought from the
neighbouring places.Internet is there and is not a problem in my
farm.I think i can take care of any visitor.I'll send to you some
photos showing my farm tomorrow.Those photos will also show some nice
I just got a whole bunch of photos from Joshua in Kenya. Does anybody want them? Inbox me your email address if you do
this sounds amazing, is anybody from Europe want to come?
I decided to head over into the great unknown for all who've been following this. This is quite exciting and super daunting at the same time. I watched the movie "the beach" the other night, which got me to realise that the biggest thing is leaving ones known securities. Though I see it all as an upward spiral towards greater expansion. So I'll be sure to let everyone know how it goes. Here's to love and freedom!
This is mental/amazing at the same time :)
Yeh that's how I'm feeling about it, my mind is like wtf and my heart is like hell yeah!
