My family and I are interested in buying land in CO to gradually begin the process toward a more sustainable and resilient lifestyle.  Does anyone have any input on the best places to look for land in like-minded communities?

Building a Sustainable Home/Property

Hi Everyone,

I've been doing research on building a "Farmhouse" if I can find the right land and wanted to pass along a website that does modular construction in a factory but is really attractive construction and you get price certainty due to no unexpected cost overruns at least with the stick built home. They also have a development that they built in VT that is a little sustainable community. 8 homes with shared area as well as your own private area and private garden to grow food and of course solar powered.

a call to relocate to Europe

my argument is simple: mankind did not pop into existence a few thousand years ago. So what are you prepping for? A limited cataclysm did not wipe the Earth clean of people 13,000 years ago. It was much more serious than that. Our ancestors were neither suicidal, retarded, nor ignorant. And yet they were thrown into a new stone age (after building things like Puma Punku which we couldn't build today if we chose to).

Hard Work Up In Vermont/Rewarding Experiences

Hi folks,

While these days of prepping, or the long months and years of having hints about a grim future can sometime get us down, I just wanted to share the experience I had yesterday and how rewarding it was.  I am of a mind that society can and will recover from collapse and many things built today can be reworked, in a more positive way, in the future.  Hard work today doesn't have to mean it will be harder in the future.

Geoff Lawton's 2015 Online Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) Course

I am currently in my second week of taking Geoff Lawton's online PDC, and it is literally blowing my mind so far.  This is not my first exposure to a PDC -- I took an on-site one locally in 2012, and it was definitely a valuable experience.  But Geoff's PDC is a whole other order of magnitude -- the depth of understanding of natural patterns he brings is unique, and he has the talent of taking a complex and complicated subject and distilling it down to its simplest elements, so it is easily understood.  It is informative AND inspiring, and I highly recommend to anyone

Personal Introductions

Hi All,

I am an American expatriot living in Tokyo. I started this group because it seemed like the PP community didn't have a place yet to discuss the specific challenges faced by those who don't have the money, assets, or other circumstances necessary to employ the majority of the resilient strategies.


Expats and the Uprooted

This group is for the uprooted, the expatriots, the unemployed, single or homeless and for those who would help us in our efforts to become resilient.

All of us will have to face the realities of failing markets at the same time, but we are not all on an equal footing to weather the storm. The prolonged economic recession has left many without the resources we need to prepare and without the ability to act upon much of the information available on Prosperity.
