hello and good day.....
I'm 27 years old and my boyfriend and I are very very interested (as in we are ready to leave the system right now!) in eco villages and a self sustainable lifestyle. We live in cambridgeshire in England in a small village where we try our best to live in harmony with nature and encourage others to do so to!! We grow our own food in our garden and allotment and so the last year and a half for us have been learning skills of not only gardening but preservation and organic cooking too. I said "try" our best purposely as it is very difficult when you are right in the centre of so much corruption and waste, I have found once you start on this path you can't get enough and everything that was once the norm or that you were taught seems disheartening. We do not watch TV and really try our best to not involve ourselves with such propaganda. I am a nurse of 5 years, which is very difficult for me at the moment as I believe everything you need is provided my nature and we have been fooled into thinking medicine is the only way. Going into work basically kills a little part of my soul, but I try to stay focused keep smiling and spread a little joy where possible. Sam, my boyfriend, is a bio mass heating engineer and again like myself he has found that the intentions of having a job that helps people and the planet is not quite as clear as it seems, as now eco energy is all about money!! So like I said we are a little disheartened but positive. We rent a house, and pay our bills and even with growing our own veggies and making our own clothes we seem to just get by, so feel trapped here, there is always a new bill waiting ;0(. I am a keen crafter, from knitting, sewing, crochet, felting etc I love it and shower everyone I know in my creations. We are keen cooks, Sam worked as a chef for some time so he has taught me a lot, and together we are learning about the organic way to healthy eating. Sam is a perfect handyman around our home, he will give anything a go and always finds a solution to what we need, from building water butts, bbq's and we are looking into COB building at the moment hoping to have a COB oven. My parents are in the house refurb and building business so my childhood was bought up in houses that by some would be classed as un-liveable but we had fun and all the family helped out, and then we moved again ha ha!! Me and Sam have been lucky in that they have taught us a lot and allowed us to help in projects to learn vital skills.
We don't have much money and our looking to leave as soon as possible. We are very hard working, friendly and keen to learn as much as possible and share what we know!! This is what we live for to meet people from different places, mixed ages to share and learn!!
We are looking for self sustainability, like minded people, interested in herbal remedies, living in a community and helping each other. Having fun and working hard to acheive the goal. Interested in music, arts and crafts, creating and making!! meditation, unity, connection, health, love ;0)
