RAINBOW FAMILY GATHERINGS: Unofficial Community for Rainbow Family
Good thinking Brittany. That's definitely something we need to do soon.
We all need to have connections we can rely on when things start to fall apart.
In addition to this group, you'll find people who are preparing on:
I know you're in some if not all of those groups.
It sounds like what you have to offer is a good place to land for any who have to bail from metro areas, and there are a lot of us. Those arrangements are not something to be made in public, though, and this site is public access. In fact Rainbow Family tends to attract agents and shills, hopefully in a small number. I would suggest contacting people in these groups personally by message because those who are thinking along these lines are showing up here. There are still many who are unaware and unprepared, even in the family. Attracting the wrong people will create an unhealthy situation. I'm sure you've seen those concerns discussed in the "Conscious Communities" group.
Then, once you've connected with someone, take it to private messages to avoid revealing too much info.
Also, you no doubt have friends who have not joined these groups. Inviting them to do so might be a good way to find out who in the Kentucky Family is looking in this direction.
I believe this is an awesome Idea! That being said, even if you do put it out there (Wide Open unlike what Morgan is suggesting) I still think you will be disappointed by the response. People do not like to change. Even when confronted face to face with devastation and destruction they still cling to the old ways in hopes of a better tomorrow. If you are really wanting to be a safe place for others, then start preparing for it.... when it comes you will be ready. Spirit will provide you with what you need along the way. There are a lot of things to consider, and it definitely takes a village.
When it comes to buying property and taking property, If your note is fixed, the higher inflation goes the less expensive your land will be, thus easier to pay off. I also would not register your 'farm' or anything else as such.
I think I can speak for all of us when I say you're most welcome.
We're always glad to share perspectives.
A root cellar!
This is the second time in a week I've heard it mentioned.
An excellent idea that needs to be brought up in the sustainability group.
hmmm... I heard it takes one to know one, brother.
Brittany, you'll find the HexaYurt and lots of other good housing ideas, ranging from simple and easy to complex projects in the "Space Containment and Housing" group.
Just be sure what the building codes are where you are.
Thank you Whyt Mountain Bear! We are fortunate that we already have an active spring and spring house that my family has been using to meet all our water needs for over 60 years. It is located on my dad's land, that is where we will eventually live. On my maternal side of my family there have been many what we call "water witchers". It seems to be a natural talent, although I have not tried since I was very young. I veiw almost all the posting on the self-sustainability website,and survival tactics. I have been urging my husband that we need to invest in alternate power sources for our home.
I am very fortunate to have grew up farming and living the simple life, although I have a wealth of knowledge, there is alot that I have to learn. I am greatful for everyones posts and sharing of knowledge. Not only does this widen my knowledge base, but it nourishes my soul!
