Meade County Kentucky

(Vine Grove, Kentucky, United States)

Mission Statement:

Sustainable community

Community Description:

We are looking to start an small community of like minded people. We wish to grow some of our own food, live in low impact housing, withdraw ourselves from the greed and cultural norm that is so widely accepted today and we wish to be happy. We are not a religious group. We do homeschool our children. We are looking to begin our community in a county somewhere near Elizabethtown, but not in Hardin county as the building codes are fairly restrictive there. We’d like to be no more than 1 hour and 15 minutes from Louisville.
We currently have 5 acres near Custer Kentucky and should start our residence in the spring!
