Fruitarian EARTHSHIP Community

This group has been created for the purpose of bringing together like minded fruitarians who wish to live in a sustainable and high fruit yielding community with relatively low housing maintenance.

Living off the grid is low impact. Nothing goes to waste. Let's collect the rain and drink it. Let's harness the sun through passive solar methods and grow with it. Let's catch the wind and keep the breeze up n flow with it!

Hi Rachelle,

thanks for your response. I've been to Maui once and loved it. Never made it to Big Island though.

What bothers me most about HI is how to make a living if I break down all bridges to my old way of life (including my job as a biology Professor). I can survive a couple of month with my savings but then what? Costa Rica and Peru seem to have less strict rules, especially regarding property tax. And I think it might be easier to find a job that pays a few bucks by selling fruit, guiding tourists, or teaching a class. But on the downside is the language barrier (my spanish is still very poor). 

 

Anyway, thanks for your response and for pointing me to the HI811 group. The earthship idea sounds great. I will re-consider HI (I played with the thought before). I am also a addicted sailor and always wanted to sail to HI. 

 

Blessings and good luck to you as well,

Axel

Aloha Axel,

We looked into moving to Costa Rica before deciding on Hawaii.  Many reason's why we chose Hawaii.  We love it here.  It is expensive but if you live in community where most of the food is grown it helps a lot. 

We are building an Earthship on the Big I. 

 

There is one 8/1/1 group here - Primal Rich is the contact on 30 B.A.D. 

 

good luck with everything.

 

Rachelle

p.s. i grew up in Missouri.  never been out of the country though.

Hi everyone,

I am 47 years old and from Germany (but live in the US in Iowa). I am going to visit Costa Rica and or the Peruvian Amazon during Christmas break (Dec. 12-Jan. 7) to visit some off-the-grid self-sustainable communities. I want to find a place that I could join later in 2012 permanently. My intention is to live close to nature (perhaps in a self-made earth bag home) and grow my own food using permaculture. Eventually, this could turn later into some kind of eco-lodge. I am also quite interested in meditation. My ultimate goal is to live in a stress-free environment where the people and the natural environment count more than anything else.

 

Since I am single, I'd prefer to join an existing community rather than purchasing my own land and start from scratch. However, if there are people here that have similar interests please let me know and we could see if want to pursue something together.

 

I have been to Costa Rica a few times and know people there. But I have not been to Peru yet and (my Spanish also needs a serious brush up). I was considering Hawaii too but I think it is too expensive. I also feel there is a lot more freedom in Costa Rica and likely also in Peru.

 

If anyone wants to get in touch, please don't hesitate. Looking forward to hearing from you.

 

Best wishes,

Axel

I'd actually like to change the first step to 'Acquire Land' ... theres no reason why we have to buy anything. Set the intention :)

Yeah Derek!

First step? Buy land. Second Step. Build earthship.
