Hi

Have you been to Ecuador? There is a huge raw vegan eco community located in a village called Vilcabamba. Let me know where in Brazil you are located? I find most South American people to be heart-felt and sincere in their everyday life.
Best,
J

I have a 10 year old son and we might be interested in joining you. I have been looking for a community of raw, unschoolers interested in the Ringing Cedars Series of books. We are in West Virginia, U.S. right now.

I know a very nice raw mom who lives in the UK but is currently in Taiwan. Her name is Cheng-yu. You can find her on Give it to me Raw and elsewhere.

Hello!

Wow! Exciting projects you have in Brasil... I am a portuguese living currently in Switzerland, but my dream has always been to move to Brasil... i would love to know more about your project there.

Whereabouts in Brasil are you located? Do you speak any portuguese? Is it easy to get by just with the english?

Let me know how you are doing there.. would love to hear more from you.

Blessings,

Ilanta

Peace ~ sounds nice smiling smiley I really dig the vibes I get out of Brazil, and would love to come some time. Thiaggo - are those schools for the youth you were speaking about doing raw foods and ecology knowledge, or for grown folks? I'd love to know. I have two daughters, 9 and 12, who could use a good school to go to. Please hit me up when you get the time. I'm thinking of making a trip down there if I can get it together here ~ possibly soon. Also, mrsula - if I make it to the other side of the Andes( or is it the same?), would it be easy to find this community you wrote of? I've heard of Vilcabamba, and it sounds small, so most likely, huh? Do they live far out of town?
Thanks to all y'all, and stay blessed. Peace **))

Lightluva: Yes, Vilcabamba is a unique place. The best is to fly into Quito or Guayaquil, then connect to Loja. From Loja (airport) it's an interesting 90 minute drive. Let me know if you want more info.
Tribert: Alto Paraiso - yes I also heard about this place. Do you have any specific time frame in mind? We are going to South America end March. First to Vilcabamba, then I want to explore Alto Paraiso region too. Let me know...

Yes MRSULA
I ll be in Alto Paraiso in mid march for two or three months.
My problem is the permanent residency ??? Seems difficult even if we have the 150 000 reais!!
Do you have solutions ??
Are you interested by a community setting ?
We keep in touch.

Tribert: We first need to explore that area before we make such a commitment. If the place is right for us, then I will continue with looking into permanent residency options. I'm also going to see a place in Spain, situated in the Genal Valley of Andalucia. I met a really nice French family here on this forum and I'm excited to visit them there. Seems like we're connecting with wonderful French families here on the forum. We're from Cape Town, South Africa.

You're welcome to email directly at: mrsula1@gmail.com
We keep in touch!

Hi Laura..

I am planning on moving to Brazil from US in 6 months to live and write books and music. I have a back ground in holistic healing (therapist) and plan on finding a location to live and grow an organic garden. I am interested in connecting with like minded people.

I am very creative and have some ideas for growing for the local markets as a possibility. I was thinking NE Brazil but I am open to other areas as long as they are rural but close to cities.

If any body is interested please email me.

Be Well,

m.kelly87@yahoo.com

we are also a family of raw vegans, and would like to join or start our own eco-village of like-minded people.
My husband is French and I am Russian, we are looking for a land in Spain or France, with a great vegetation to start a permaculture, far away from fields as they most likely spray chemicals on them. We would love to live a very quiet yet happy life, enjoying the nature and people who care.
We have started a Facebook page to attract people to get together and start a new project.

[sl-si.facebook.com]

I think, it’s always easier if we have several people/families to start a new project, the country doesn’t really matter, as long as we have right people and opportunity to grow our own food and have sufficient alternative energy source.

Hi Laura,
Have you found a raw vegan community yet? We are raw vegans as well and would be glad to live in a community of like-minded people. What worries me about Brazil is immigration process....How long does it takes and how complicated is it?
Thanks,
Sasha

Hi tribert,
I am going to google the area you've suggested, we are very interested to join (or start our own) raw vegan community. I read that you, guys, are going to Brazil in March? Let us know how it went. We are in Canada now, and going back to France in May. Planning to look for a land there, maybe we'll find something suitable for an eco community. due to the crises there are some good deals. Maybe we'll be able to go to Brazil to check it out on our own some time in autumn. Keep us posted how your search went. Thanks

To cedar12:
Hi, I know those books you are talking about: "Anastasia" by Vladimir Megre "Ringing cedars of Russia" series, I guess they are now translated in other languages winking smiley They used to be available only in Russian. By the way, a new book #10 just came out in Russia (this march).
I like the principles he described in his books. I don't know if there are many people who read them in US, but there are definitely plenty of communities in Russia formed after people read those books.
Whatever the reason, it's great that people start to think about being good to others, take care of nature and eat healthy food...
stay in touch...
Sasha

HELLO EVERYBODY,
I am new on the forum, sorry for my poor english, i am French...

There's a meeting in the south of France "pyrenées orientales" in the montains : from the 21 to 26 june (solstice to full moon) 2010 for peoples and families interested to built/join ecovillage(s) vegan project, there's already families ready to move in the end of the summer to brazil.

Arthur from OASISgaia.org in the alto paraiso will be at the meeting [www.cooperation.net]
and i hope other peoples from brasil projects too...like :
[fazenda.abracadabra.over-blog.com]
and [www.redeaurora.org.br]

there's already ecovillages projects that can be a base in brasil to meet and start... land is cheap, multiples possibilities...
The idea is to gather enough families to make a school quickly, without that some families will not make the move...

take your tents, the place will be soon defined and prepared: more info later on that.

you can ask me at nouveaumarc@gmail.coIIIm (please remove the last "III": my antispam)

Hi Everybody who replied to my original message last November!

To recap, I am searching for a community & I am prepared to start one with some other families. I am based in the state of Sao Paulo, in Botucatu. I have a spare room for visitors!! See the website of where I live www.bairrodemetria.com

There are a few communities here in Brasil but mostly based on groups of young people without families, training others how to start the whole permaculture thing.

www.ena.ecovillages.directory has a list of about 12 ecovilas,

Yes, I read the Anastasia series with delight! It is inspiring.

I am interested in setting up the education-side as a priority, for my daughter of 4 & as you say, to attract other families.

It is not so easy to get in to Brasil without the usual requirements( marriage, offspring). My European friends have managed it, setting up a business here. I am sure it is possible for you to manage it too.

In the South of Brasil it is easy to get by with a little poruguese. But really you can just pick it up when you start living here. There is a lot of English going on.

To be honest with you all, I am a single mum with a strong desire to be part of a larger community/family & put my abundant energies & creative powers into building something for her future, for all the children, & to be nutured & nuture others.

PLEASE email me or call me & lets see us starting something real soooooooooon!!!

Call Brasil (55) 14 3814 0646
email laura@sunshinelearning.co.uk

Good luck & great "manifesting" to all of you!

Laura

Hello Everyone!

I'm so happy to find this forum today as I was just searching for the same things! Wonderful to 'manifest' with you all indeed! smiling smiley

I'm a big fan of Chile and will be relocating there late this year or by January/February latest to find land and begin building a simple home and garden for myself. It would be ideal to find like minds and pool resources as these threads describe, building our own village.

In my research, Chile has the most straight forward immigration and land purchase laws for foreigners. If anyone has interest in exploring the options in Chile further, I would love to hear from you.

Thanks very much and all the best wishes to you!

Sincerely,
Michelle

Hi everybody

we have been traveling around the world for 2 years now (Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Paraguay, Panama, Costa Rica)
and believe that Costa Rica (CR) offers the best spots on earth to establish a raw foodists' community.
CR is a peaceful country with friendly people although it is not south america but central america ;-)
In some points it is true that CR is the most expensive country in Latin America (e.g. cars, some kinds of electronics, diesel...or western life style in general) on the other hand we have seen (not in the internet but in reality) a lot of farms nearly all over CR and found properties far below US$ 10.000 a hectare (1 Ha is 2,47 acres).
We have concentrated on the southern caribbean cost of CR the last 2 months and think this is the best region to plant highly tropical fruits all the year round. the season for durian, cempedak and jackfruit is much longer compared to other regions where you have a real DRY dry season.
We have found a 21 Ha farm for US$ 210.000 asking price that offers flat areas but got fantastic ocean view. Maybe we can get the farm for something like US$ 180.000.
Actually ocean view is not so important to us because we would like to buy a larger piece of land, something like 40 Ha or larger. This week we will see a couple of farms that have more than 200Ha sold at US$ 1000 per Hectare.

All the farms we have seen have road access. We plan to instal solar energy.

We are not vegan or vegetarian but strictly raw (mainly eating fruits, veggies and herbs but animal food sometimes, too) and want to establish a raw food community that has like-minded people. The center of the property will be reserved for raw foodists only but if we buy a larger piece of land we will sell parts of the property to mild rawfoodists or people who want to become eco-self-sustaining.

We got all the criteria for our future property, the community and a lot of photos on our homepage:
www.rohkostarica.de

Our e-mail is
info@rohkostarica.de

Best
Konstantin
