Land Stewards and Earth Builders in the United States

Community Builders in the United States
We are looking for communities, or families, who are in the beginning stages of building (or have new projects) and are looking for help with natural and sustainable development.
We are the Farmers!
Together we are Azriel (M37), Shaina (F36), Eliana (F15), Robby (M12) and our 4 legged friends , the dogs Callie, Zara, Moose, and our cat Uzumaki (affectionately called Little Little). We currently live full time in our self converted, off grid capable Skoolie. We started our journey in New England, Rhode Island to be specific, where we ran a successful homestead/ farmstand. On our small 2 acre plot we were able to raise 100% of our meat and 60% of our own fresh food. We raised chickens, turkeys, goats and rabbits.
In our quest to be as self sufficient as possible, we decided to give away all we owned, sell our homestead and hit the road to find land and community where we could leave behind a much larger impact on the world and also continue to minimize our footprint.
We have traveled most of the 50 states so far with only a few outliers to go.
We have met some beautiful souls and learned so much in our 2+ years on the road, but our original goal was to settle down and start land stewarding again.
While we explore we are looking to find like minded people who we can help grow with.
Specifically we are looking for communities that need assistance with building and creating.
We successfully started a 2 acre homestead from the ground up and are looking to empower others towards food sovereignty and self sufficiency.
But here’s the catch for us, what is being done MUST be for the ALL.
What does this mean?
Well it means your family, self or community are building towards a sustainable future with the intention of helping others.
We have “WWOOF’d”, and while helping others lights us all up, we would prefer to help steward land that is is in use for All, set up in a non profit or LLC for example, where the inner workings are already working towards the ALL and not a singular land owner who is in charge. (That top down Capricorn structure doesn’t work for us any longer.)
Our focus this year is on natural building and using what we find all around us to create with.
In exchange for a peaceful place to park and access to water, we would like to help these communities grow.
Now some more about us:
– we are conscious eaters – meaning we try to eat as local as possible and if we are consuming from an animal, we want to know that animal lives a fulfilled life (no grocery store meat or dairy here)
– we believe in only coming together when we are at our best- meaning we all get the grace to decide each day how we are feeling and how we want to contribute to the world that day.
Schedules and time are only relevant when we say they are. (The only person in charge is each individual over themselves.)
– we believe in non violent communication and focus on self healing, our emotions play an integral role in our experience and we choose to honor those emotions privately.
– we do not consume alcohol and do not tolerate violence of any kind.
– we are all here to learn from one another and believe all humans to be equal, no matter age, gender, or financial abilities. We all have equal say in our family and don’t believe in someone being in charge of anyone else.
– we love to be outside – fires, farming, foraging to name a few of our favorite pastimes.
– we are self sufficient and believe we all have the tools within us to shape our way in the world and work together to create.
My motto is – “I am here to create a world so beautiful my brain can’t comprehend it yet” (Shaina)
We are looking to live within a community (established or starting) and contribute where we can. We know the importance of a work/life balance and are hoping to find other families who feel the same. We have limited needs as our bus is off grid capable and we have a composting toilet onboard – access to water is our only “need”.
If you have space for us or have any questions please reach out via email (
I will also link our small YouTube channel below if anyone would like to “see” more about us.
Let’s Remember Together.
Always Love 64 💙💛
