People needing Communal Places

This noticeboard is intended for individuals or families who would like to join an existing group. 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). But before you proceed any further we would urge you to take a look here at communities that are currently looking for new members. Don't fool yourself into thinking that those places will be endlessly checking out People needing Communal Places and are, consequently, likely to approach you. Communities rarely do head-hunting and, in fact, they'll probably think far more highly of you if you take the initiative and make a direct approach to them. You should also be aware that there are scarcely any communities where people can live without making any financial input. Offers of work in exchange for a money-free life will most likely be ignored - most members of communities work their butts off for the place where they live AND pay to live there as well!

2 useful people looking for a community who needs them.

We are a married couple of 2 x 40 somethings who have retired early so we can take our motor home and meet new Friends, work on different projects and hopefully find somewhere we like enough to stay. We have been workaholics for years but it’s not made us happy - we want to get out - try new things and lead a more rewarding life. Experienced in : hard and soft landscaping, plumbing, electrics, all building and carpentry work, general house/garden maintenance as well as solar/12v ...campervan and mobile home/static requiring/maintenance.....animal care, some mechanics...pretty much anything we have done / tried :) In an ideal world we are invited to stay at community where we can make friends, be productive, work hard with decent down time to craft/learn new skills, appreciate life....help with organisation if needed/social media....whatever. Did I mention we are workaholics? Lol. We are fit and healthy, fairly quiet....non smokers, rarely drink. I’m a bit of a geek and husbands mr non stop tidy fairy builder ......We have 3 lovely older quiet well trained dogs and are solvent, stable and really nice decent people looking to spend some time with people like us who care about the world, environment, animals and just being nice. We would hope to be on the road early 2020. Please drop us a line if you would like us to pop by for a weekend before hand in our motorhome and chat / meet / say hi :) we love meeting new friends so say hi ❤️

Young professional looking to start a new life

Hi everyone, I'm George, 33. I'm looking to leave my busy London life behind and join a friendly community to lead a more green, peaceful and meaningful life. I'm looking for somewhere to move this summer, 2019. About me: Biologist by education, I've worked with websites most of my life and for the past few years I've been transitioning into holistic healing and therapy, my lifelong passion. I'm currently working on an ambitious online project focused on personal development, fulfilment and spiritual growth, which consumes most of my time. == WHAT I'M LOOKING FOR == [*] Ideally, I'm looking for a place with open-minded, friendly people who are open to everyone regardless of their nationality, religion, gender, race or sexuality. [*] I love nature and looking for a location that has a lot of natural spaces to roam. I'd love a place where there's an opportunity to grow food, herbs and flowers, sadly in London that's an unachievable dream. [*] I'm a bit of an introvert, which simply means that I'm respectful of other people's space and prefer hours of passionate discussions, swapping stories and laughing in the company of my friends, rather than mingling and getting to know many new people in a large social event. [*] I'd love a balance between having my own quiet corner to retreat to when I need to work/write/do research or simply to rest; and spending time with friendly, respectful, supportive people to help one another, do communal tasks together or simply enjoying little things like nice hikes, playing sports or grabbing a cuppa. [*] I'm open and willing to adapt to any reasonable community ethos and values, as long as a particular belief system or religion is not mandatory to its members. I can adjust to most dietary or lifestyle preferences (I'm currently mostly vegetarian). I never had much taste for booze or recreational drugs, but don't mind either, as long as they're not a requirement for socializing within the group. [*] A group with non-religious spiritual interests (meditation, yoga, personal growth etc) would be great, but not essential. [*] My long-term vision is to have a holistic healing practice and perhaps join forces with other practitioners in similar fields to run our own small retreat centre. This would bring in visitors to stay in natural environment while recovering mentally and physically, attending lectures, courses, workshops as well as having group and one-on-one therapy sessions to make the most of their visit. == WHAT I CAN OFFER == [*] I have a lot of experience with all things IT and web, including website development, graphic design, photography, marketing and advertising. I'm always happy to share my expertise and devote time to worthy causes, which could help bring visitors, funds and raise awareness to any community venture or project. [*] I have a reasonably stable, location-independent income and am happy to pay rent + my share of community expenses. [*] I have a long-term goal of running a holistic therapy practice, perhaps growing it into a retreat centre. My current online project can provide a flow of interested visitors, which can be of benefit to local community by providing accommodation, local recreation, events, services, selling locally grown/prepared/produced goods, offering other complimentary therapies etc. There is a huge potential for growth and expansion in the right setting. [*] I'm polite, respectful, friendly, helpful and reliable (I've been told). I like my space clean and tidy, cook well (both veggie and omnivore), am well-rounded and well-versed in many subjects and always eager to learn more from others. ======= Thank you for reading thus far. I'm always happy to get to know anyone who's on the same path, whether you're already in a community, looking to start one or, like me, looking for one yourself - please feel free to message me, email me or reach out on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=537558934 Email: geomeils@gmail.com warm regards, George
