Here's a video we just filmed with permaculture expert Michael Pilarski about a medicinal fruiting plant you can grow in your garden.

If anyone is interested we've curated this free permaculture design course on this one page: http://organiclifeguru.com/free-permaculture-organic-farming-online...

 Is anyone from this group in British Columbia ?

Hey Sergio, as being stated on our site, we are mainly striving for forming a community of like-minded people. That is to say, people who either join the project as neighbors of ours, or living and working with us on our land. We invite volunteers in the first place in order to find out who truly " walks the talk"....

@Ray Woods. Very cool, I was wondering if you guys are looking for members to be living there permanently or just volunteers ?

Comment by Ray Woods on October 29, 2013 at 3:01pm
...here there is just now be forming a raw-community. Inso far as we are not only expanding on the level of being joined of more community members, but also by having gotten more land and thus a wider food supply.

Hi Daan,

I am on the same boat dude.. I recently moved to the tropics ( Brazil ) from Canada and I am loving it here. My plans are to buy a piece of land and create a self sustainable farm/society . It`s hard to find like minded people around.. It would be great to find people here who are interested on living like myself here in the tropics .

Dear fellow fruit lovers!,

I recently adopted the 80/10/10 way of life and LOVE it!

I've had a nagging feeling from the age of 12 that something just wasn't entirely right about how we -western society- are living life. 20 years education - 40 years working - 10 to 20 years on your bum, all while getting your food from the supermarket instead of the place it really comes from - Nature!

I went on a backpacking trip to Australia last year. The whole experience and the awesome people I met have had a lasting impact on me.

This feeling has been increasing a lot lately and right now I'm quite sure I would love to be living self sufficient in a tropical climate. In a Garden of Eden, so to speak.

So since my paid work will be ending this month and I do have some savings, I was thinking about hitting the road again and visiting people who are living this way. To help them out in exchange for food and accommodation while simultaneously learning from them and experiencing what it will be like!

I'm looking around for places to visit (anywhere!) and I think I might have found some interesting looking ones, but since doing things together with like-minded people is WAY more fun, I'm writing this message here to ask if there is anybody who wants to join me? Or maybe who is already doing this and then I could join you! :)

My view of it: traveling to farms / communities / homestead of people living -mostly- self sufficient the high-carb raw vegan way and practicing Permaculture / sustainable food growing techniques.

If you are interested to join me, let me know!

And if you know places which I should definitely go to, let me know as well!

A little about me:

- male

- 21 years of age

- 'from' The Netherlands

- university drop-out (this whole system....)

(Any tips on books, videos, courses (PDC?) raw vegan style very much appreciated as well :) )

Kind regards,

Daan

the permaculture lifestyle works perfect for this lifestyle because both of these lifestyles were what are ment for all humanity. Its back to Eden. All was good in the beggining when these lifestyles were a major composition of life.
