  • Description


    Looking for a couple, or even a group. We are in the very early stages of creating a completely self sustainable, green, off the grid compound.

    The off the grid home compound will consist of house made from trees on the property, solar power, goats/chickens/donkey, and large garden.

    Property is in beautifully remote area of Pennsylvania, which is an hour from Binghamton, NY, and about 3.5 hours New York City.

    Areas that I seek some assistance will not only include helping me helping me build and create the off-the-grid home, compound or even small community, but will also help care for the Mayor of the compound, Roger (a foster dog), until a forever home is found.

    There is just not work to be done, there is an adventure to be had! Would prefer to find someone initially with farming skills, more than a with carpentry skills. I would rather a mistake be made with wood vice the animals not being taken care of properly.

    Could be the good beginnings of a YouTube channel.

  • Help


    The Camp needs fields cleared, fencing put up, well dug, solar panels erected, camper renovated, small barn erected for goats and donkey, chicken coop constructed, wind turbine erected, lots of digging, and much more. There is a lot of work to be done for this self sustaining Camp to become a reality.
