People forming a Group

This noticeboard is intended for individuals, small handfuls of individuals or families that would like to find others to get something going. People are likely to be at a very early stage and so not big enough or thought-through enough to go into our Forming Groups section. We would always urge people to consider whether they really want to "reinvent the wheel" all over again. Existing communities are often looking for new members (take a look here) and there are usually several forming groups who've already got some way down the line here.
If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

People willing to Buy a large house together. (£500,000 upwards ) or maybe more.

Hi, we are looking for like minded people who are fed up with having to run their own homes single handedly. We are open to many suggestions but the prime aim is to live together happily into old age. We have decided on an area south of Bath.And the importance is having a collective, which should enable us to have many more valuable possessions ie: swimming pool, gym, large garden with gardener, cook,sports car, motorhome, caravan, timeshare holidays, annexes for business or horses, the list is endless.. I am not interested in living off the land or living on a shoe string budget, just a really good living. Equally importantly we will be amongst new companions. If you think you might be vaguely interested,or indeed know someone else who could be, by all means give me a call, many thanks, Tom. 07825687131 thomas.oliver1@hotmail.com Investors would also be very welcome. And people willing to join at a later date. Update, we are off the ground and hovering as we speak. 'Banes' area is where we are looking, and anyone wanting a share of a million pound property are welcome to come and join us.

Looking for other Walkaways, especially those technically-minded.

I am spending winter in Zagreb, Croatia, helping to set a squatted building off-grid. I am also starting a series of technical workshops, to spread knowledge and to gain enough money to build electric bikes and trailers for me and my partner. In spring we plan to hit the road and start travelling from community to community, providing technical support education and healing (my partner is into spiritual and magic department). So, I am looking for kindred minds, happy to travel slowly, study and teach "appropriate technology" and help people build life support systems to survive climate change. Also, we'll be happy to meet communities that may wish to host us for a month or so, in exchange for our help. Why "walkaway"? See https://thewalkaways.wordpress.com/2018/12/02/walkaway/ for explanation.

Join Extinction Rebellion and help expand southwest England land bloc

Hello! Please read this post very very carefully. I get many inappropriate emails which would have been saved had the writers read this advert more carefully! Okay, so I am advertising here for two projects. 1) Forming a land bloc. This is a regional strategy to build a land bloc of likeminded people, for political reasons, facing an increasingly unstable world. We seek the second land-owner in the land-bloc. Organic growing, biodiversity conservation and a hard work ethic are a must. We are seeking a land buyer with capital. We do not have land for rent or any space for you to build on our land. 2) Recruitment for the international direct action campaign Extinction Rebellion, against government inaction on climate breakdown. From November 2018 we will go to prison for peaceful infrastructure blocks. Join us in frontline or support roles: www.extinctionrebellion.org

New Community for Swansea Central

Hi there. We're a group of people living in a shared house in central Swansea with a decent size garden, couple of greenhouses and workshop (was garage), just half a mile from the beach. The garden (big for a city centre location - about the size of 2-3 allotment plots) is given over to growing fruit & veg. We are interested in people wanting join our household and share a happy co-existence with us. Though in a vibrant and cosmopolitan area with all that city life offers, we're on a quiet street, so it's a place of relaxation and enjoyment with a good community spirit. contact Dan at dan@danzyg.com if you're interested.

Forming new radical diasporist queer Jewish co-op in Sheffield

Hi lovely beings! I am about to move to Sheffield, having been offered a job in community development work. I am looking for like-minded folk who are committed to helping develop a cooperative house project. Here is what I am currently looking for in coop members: 1) Queer identified: This house will be a space for queer people to live communally and create space for wider community. I am interested in creating a place where young queers who are struggling with family issues can come get advice/a helping hand. 2) Jewish: You do not need to be religious as such (I am not exactly religious) but rather be committed to radical engagements with Jewishness/Judaism. I would love to host Shabbats, engage with the festivals, do Jewish learning days etc... I am into queer Jewish ritual reconstruction! Please note, the aim is not to be living in a house that excludes non-Jewish folk from being part of the wider house community (on the contrary I really want to think in an interfaith capacity), but rather, it's about being able to keep a Jewish home easily and comfortably, and therefore I would like to live with other Jews. 3)Far left: You will be far-left/of anarcho-socialist inclinations. I am looking to live with other people who engage with social justice activism who wish for their activism to also be rooted in the home: i.e.: living out the life and world we wish to see. 4) Communal living: You will have previous experience of communal living or a serious commitment to communal living. This means having good communication skills, emotional intelligence and an awareness of keeping a space clean and beautiful! I look forward to hearing from those interested. Rum :)

Swedish Lapland anyone?

Hi! Some time ago I discovered a lovely place on Arctic Circle called Vuollerim - beautiful nature, clean waters, sparkling snow... A real paradise for people who are not afraid of long winters...I have bought a house there and I am planning to move there with my 9-year-old boy. People in the village are very friendly and trying to make the village a good place (they opened a hotel, a free school,a dairy (they have mountain cows). However, many young people move south to cities where life is easier and faster and this means that house prices are amazingly low. Our neighbour has sold hers for £5000 (yes, 5 and 3 zeros :) ) I am just sharing this with you because I would love to attract more good, nature loving people into this place. They are many opportunities (tourism, permaculture, natural therapies...). We can help village thrive and form a great community where we have time to be with each other, create things and get a new quality of live. It is a perfect place for people who also appreciate privacy and can't see themselves living in the same house or on the same plot with others. Please, contact me if you want to know more about the village. There is a chance to rent our house for a small amount of money (to cover electricity bills) while we are not there or a room when we are there :)
