    If the TTIP goes ahead, as is being discreetly negotiated at present, it will make billions for the US global corporations and ruin our society, economy and environment in the process.

Eco community seeks partners

Three households with capital seek others to form Eco-community in SW Wales

We are three households looking to buy a farm/smallholding/land with others in SW Wales (Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Carmarthanshire). We would like to establish an Eco-community that embraces deep respect for each other and the land. We envisage each household having their own dwelling, with the majority of the land being worked communally to grow food with provision for individual plots, raising animals, running sustainable businesses, and managing our own water and woodland.

 

We will use Permaculture principles and hope to earn our livelihoods from the land and on-site courses, and accept that we may have to work outside if needed. 



We want to do this to make ourselves more resilient as food and energy prices increase. We also want a slower pace of life and to distance ourselves from the superficial nature of modern life. We want to spend as much time as possible in the natural world, being connected to the seasons and the elements and working with our hands. We see living in an Eco-community as way to share resources, work, emotional support and friendship as well as having freedom, individual space and respect for privacy.

We are currently viewing land with farmhouses and out-buildings as well as land on its own. The main criteria is for the land to have its own private water supply and woodland, and have sufficient south facing areas.



We have about £250k in capital for the initial purchase. This money is readily available as we have all sold our properties and are living in rental accommodation in West Wales at the moment. We are keen to hear from two groups of people, those with capital to help buy the property and those that would be interested in living in the community and renting.

Additionally we invite interest from parties who may wish to invest whilst unable to currently live in the Eco-community, such investment will be legally acknowledged. We also hope that we would be able to buy the property outright, to avoid being tied to the banking system.

We appreciate that many people do not have the capital to invest in this sort of project, and it is very important to us to have a diverse and intergenerational group of members as the community becomes established and therefore welcome interest from all parties.
