Eco Island

(Panama City, Florida, United States)

Mission Statement:

earth friendly community

Community Description:

The idea is to start a small Eco community on an island..
Ideally completely off the grid,using solar,wind and water power. The island is not very large,about a 600 feet in length. Posting in hopes of finding other like minded kindred souls.Perhaps someone who has set up one and could give me some ideas where to start.I have started a blog to document everything from the start in hopes of helping out others.
May even start a micro nation on the island. Declare myself King and sell Lordships and Ladyships.
