Information

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!

  i have been growing  some of the best housebuilding plants in the world  here in   pristine  Hawaiian  forest  so  fruitarians  can live truly   sovereign , Looking forward to  something like a community of fruitarians  that want to live sustainable, Eating !00% locally grown,  every  year   there is new flavors to eat from as we (my cooked botanist friends)plant new types of food plants to share , planning on building some  simple sleeping structures made of only local materials of the finest strength and qualities, it is a matter of  just doing it now, plenty land  , water , food, building supplies, oh  did I mention the waterfalls, hydro massages,  bodysurfing, oh, I need to get off this computer now and go for a splash

 I choose to live here  since I truly believe it is the   best place to thrive this way

 looking forward to the day when I see no plastics in my view, plenty natural solutions  at our fingertips here at the end of the road

 I wish my friends around here where eating  like I do , feeling best  when fruitarian friends are here planting trees with me , recently I have been getting  cooked  people come thru the farm ,meat eaters  and they have little interest in  my  goals  so it has been a challenge for me to  be social and keep focus  with all my many garden prodjects going on here ,  there and over yonder.

  people  visit my ranch gardens  and help and  learn then i introduce them to  friends in the area where they might fit in  better, or they have to go  to their home somewhere far away.

 hey Ted

 when you coming to Big Island  again? it must be getting chilly up there

I intend to enroll in Earthship Academy, then build mine in Guam, or other Mariana Island--back to my roots.

Yes, Finding a way to make a living can be difficult here.  Gotta find your nitch. :)

 

There are several people here building alternative style buildings.

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
