Wanderer’s End Prepper Community

(Appalachian Mountains, Kentucky, United States)

Mission Statement:

Sustainable Prepper Community

Community Description:

We are a group of like minded individuals,concerned about the earth’s destruction, the governments GMO foods, and how to survive both. We are a nonprofit research group with interests in sustainable community living. We research natural lifestyles, not to exclude internet or technology, but to make a life where you can be guilt free of hurting the future for our children. Current projects are power from magnets for our homes and pyrolisis to fuel our vehicles.
The Tactical & Practical Community

Our communities are tactical because in the event of an emergency, you have a built in survival group in place. Everyone will be skilled, geared, and ready to work together. Our community is very practical because there are numerous financial and cooperative benefits of homesteading near each other.

Join us! To become a shareholder, we only ask for a small monthly membership payment to be provided with an off the grid eco home, that is even mostly Bullet proof, shares in our grown GMO FREE produce, meats and other goods, 24/7 365 security, fellowship and more!
You can pick your lot, then plan your house and we help built it utilizing our community construction process! We’re building a community with livestock, orchards, and gardens, community barn/tractor/etc.

We are now recruiting
families, to help to create & Run
a community built,
sustainable Eco Village.

A New kind of Eco Village
that’s reaching for the 22nd century

By utilizing research of logical
methods for sustainable living,
we are establishing a healthier
relationship for living with the
earth & our communities.

Our plan just needs people…
A community that paves a new road to the American dream for
those otherwise left behind.
Or just for people that want more.
This plan will change your life!

Our mission is to guide you through to research and obtain, the most logical sustainable lifestyle that can be accomplished by an average community that works together. Our power as a community, empowers us to accomplish more! The 1st step on the Wanderer’s path is to get to our online network that will help you get grouped together with others in your chosen location to purchase your shares.
