“Hello friends. My name is Morgan Caraway. My better half Mary Jane and I built an earthbag house near Asheville, NC (some info about this technique at EarthbagBuilding.com), a cordwood bath house and recently completed an earthbag sunroom addition. We also built our own yurt, set up a rainwater system, built our own micro solar electric system and have learned a lot about sustainable living in general.
We have a vision for a sustainable, loving “blueprint” community. I am seeking co-creators and folks that would like to invest in or donate land for the future of humanity. It would be small, most likely less than 10 groups of people (families, friends, etc). Each group would have a nice sized piece of land to build and do projects on, also this would give them some space when they aren’t feeling social. The two guiding priniciples of the community would be to, #1 – respect the Earth and, #2 – to respect your neighbor. People could live how they see fit as long as they don’t hurt the environment or anyone else. There would be a large community building that would be the social hub. There could be everything from child and elder care to parties and classes at the community building. One of the most important functions of the community would be to share the knowledge we have learned with others. There would be quarters for visitors to stay and learn. To buy in, people would only pay for their share of the land cost and a small fraction towards the common area.”
