Earth - EcoVillage and self sustainable community project

I am currently working on creating a self-sustaining eco village for approximately 10 to 20 individuals or families who also share in my dream of living totally in harmony with nature.

Those interested must have a desire to live without modern luxuries such as electricity and oil dependency.

Each person/family would have their privacy on their own dwelling with an area around it for growing their own herbs, medicines, and food (There would also be a community garden as well for all in the community), as well as community space shared by all.

I am currently looking at a piece of land in Maine.  40 acres of undeveloped land.  About 75% forrested and 2 streams that cross through and converge on the southern end of the property.

This allows for plenty of space for dwellings, as well as quite a lot of open area for exploring (for those like myself who like to practice my beliefs and ceremonies skyclad, there is plenty of forest and land to do so).

I am also open to any ideas so please feel free to share.

And it seems that this group really has fallen out of use. I still love this idea, and it is one that I fully intend to continue working for. If there is still anyone who follows this group and you want to stay in touch, feel free to message me. I have actually found a really good source for existing eco-villages, though not any that are only pagan.

Pity, this whole idea is one I love, even if I'm not crazy about Maine. I think this has so much good potential, I would hate to think everyone has given up on it.

Most of so Keith? Stinking autocorrect. Most of SOCIETY... *headdesk*

Ok. Thanks Kavya. That wasn't clear to me from what I read. I'm thinking I also read that they're in NM "for now" or something like that. It is an interesting and great concept IMO. Takes some exceptional individuals to have that kind of mindset. Most of so Keith these days, and I've been on this rant for quite some time, is too selfish and consider themselves too important to be able to live in any kind of a community. Folks have to nearly clip your front end off so they can get to a red light before you do. They're so important. Gotta cut line in McD's be ause they're so important they can't wait an extra couple of minutes for their cappuccino drink. You get the point. It's all over society and I just am amazed that there are s people left who can live in this manner. Most can't.

Rant over. :-D
For now.

Ok. Dumb question but blonde, inquiring minds wanna know. Just read the philosophy of the NDP and of course I'm paraphrasing, but the idea that community exists no matter if the location changes. Good philosophy and I agree. But how does that work? The changing location aspect of it? Apparently they don't own the land they're on? How do they live there? I know you've talked about buying the land so your location wouldn't change but how does NDP deal with that aspect? Just curious.
