I originally listed this meetup for the Creating Intentional Community group.
I am including the WNC Survival and Thrival Group in the invitation because this is a wonderful example of off the grid living.
Read the rest to see if you desire to play.
This Meetup promises to be an exciting, educational, and epicurean adventure of some unknown proportions.
We are going to gather and either work on the mud hut (with concrete and wire), or work in the garden, or dig some dirt or do some of the other everyday stuff that goes on at the Dancing Shiva neighborhood.
Also we will have a tour of the Permaculture neighborhood designed by Rudy Ballentine.
Solar power, solar hot water, passive solar building design, rainwater catchment and storage, greywater systems, and all the other things that make up comfortable "Off the Grid Living" are here.
I believe we should have a pot luck lunch. Bring some healthy food to share with others. Please bring food that is as local as possible and organic. Most of the people living here are allergic to "crap". Good food: Vegan, vegetarian, meat eatin or whatever, just healthy. No dimetheylbromidaline or other things that do not sound like carrot or po-ta-to.
For dinner, after the 4pm responsibilities are over, Rudy has promised an epicurean delight of organic local food.
And if enough people are interested we could continue on into a drum circle, fire pit, stand up comedy, singing, dancing and other cute things we humans do.
The Meetup will be some work in exchange for a tour, an experience, and an extravaganza (if you stay for dinner and/or drum circle).
Bring your boots, gloves, a change of clothes, your drums AND other musical instruments, some lunch pot luck food, and a little imagination and....
Believe me, some exciting things will happen.
Please visit the Earthaven website to familiarize yourself with the area.
The Dancing Shiva is a new neighborhood and not yet listed on the website as such.
