I'm a 30 year old former banker that moved from Nassau to the quiet, laid back island of Eleuthera, Bahamas. I started my career life in banking after spending a few years in college studying BioChemistry. After nearly a decade and six kids I ended my tenure to seek a more flexible career and studying for a salesman license in Real Estate. During my quest to learn more about the available land on Eleuthera I stumbled across a lakeside and oceanview property currently owned by our agriculture department and could be leased for farming.
I have recently been approved to farm on 10 acres leased by the Department of Agriculture and my desire to grow an organic farm and medicinal plants intially. I am hoping to prove the benefit of starting an eco-village with a learning center for sustainability and conservation on same property or leasing additional acreage. I'd like to visit with other farmers and residents of eco-villages to get a better appreciation and understanding of what is involved.
My dream is to be a part of a community of like minded individuals that can pool our talents and access to resources to foster a sense of urgency in my country of off-grid living, earth friendly living and conservation. I have such a passion for health that I'd really like to effectivily spread the word and live the life that others can be excited to follow. I envision a lakeside eco-village on Eleuthera with outdoor showers, wooden cabins with lots of natural lighting, solar panels for minimal electricty to power fans atleast, composting toilets, bonfires with friends, beach combing and hiking and great socialising.
