warm sub tropical island commune needs help

ok first off here is the web site where you can find plenty of local communitites near you and you can also do a search in Puerto Rico and find out more about us and contact information.
http://directory.ic.org/geo/


now that being said Howdy!
we need some farmers and gardeners to help become more self sustaining. we got plenty of room just not many people and who we do have cant grow anything.

alittle about us we are 4 single parent families total of 5 people over age 16 and 9 under 16.
we are very family friendly but so not want anybody forcing any belief on others curently we have a practing wiccan a babtist a cathloic and agnostic. so we are open to all as long as nothing is forced on another person. we belive that as long as what you do is not harming anohter person you fine. but because of so many children we tend to do out own things in our own areas. such as smoking its allowed no problem but respect the wishes of others and do not smoke in common areas that are enclosed.

that was an example but basically if you want to be part of a family and respect the wishes of each other while still being free to do as you wish in your area and willing to help take part in the care and maintence of the communitity. then your welcom to join us...bring a tent build a cabin, hut, home what ever...

howdy again people. i have gotten 3 messages abotu this post and i am thinking now maybe it was a bad idea to sujest contacting me persoanlly. because all 3 have basically said and asked the same questions. so in future go ahead and ask here please it may save you the hassle of looking up my contact info.

ok now ill try to answer a couple of the more common questions
no we dont have a fee to join or monthly dues or anything.

we lease the land from the goverment and its incredably cheap, but its also stipulated to be an easment to other land. so i cant block the road that runs through the middle. and the natinal guard reserves the right to pratice manervers there. but not destroy property. by agreeing to those terms you wouldnt belive how cheap it was.

and to save another question its 1.00 an acre per year and its 350 acres.. so as i said its cheap.

yes we need farmers but its not required to know farming but a willingness to learn is great. any added skills are nice to have around. and if not skilled just be willing to learn will do.

we all vote on issues concering money (adults) (16 and over)
children have a say also in chores and minor rules as they become needed. but the important stuff is for the adults.

alternative lifestyles are fine with us we just do not force anything on anybody and we have plenty of room where if you wanted to howl at the moon totally naked with your body covered in honey you could and nobody else would see. but in common areas i dont think its approatite.

as of now children outnumber the adults we are 4 single parent families

1 divorced male and 3 divorced females all with 2 or more children living on site,


the 5th largest and fastes growing part of the island is withen walking distance
aguadill has many attractions and brings lots of turists to the area and turisim is where we generate money. buy selling items we make. such as hand painted sea shells and the like.

well i think that about covers the questions i have had sofar....hope it helps and id be happy to see some people show up even if it was just for the summer or winter or what ever.... some new faces and new stories would be nice around a bonfire on the beach.

I'll be very interested in a few years. When I'm out of high school I mean. My parents expect me to go to college, but that's not really what I have planned. It'll either be moving to the U.K. (Near glasgow specifically) and helping out with a friend of mine who grows (marijuana, shrooms, and cherry tomatoes) or moving to a community.

Greetings,
My ladyfriend (47), her son (15), and myself (58) are looking for a lifestyle change and the tropics seem to be the answer. Currently we live in Florida and talking of going south. I'd like to hear from you personally thru my E-mail, please drop me a line.
What are your electric sources, water, sanitation, etc ?
It is my understanding that passports are not needed.
More when I hear from you.
Thanks, Jay
