Off-The-Grid Raw Vegan Community On Big Island Hawaii
Off-the-grid, self-sufficient, raw vegan community on Big Island Hawaii
I am planning to build an off-the-grid, self-sufficient, raw vegan community at Royal Gardens, on Big Island Hawaii.
Royal Gardens was a “housing development” in process’ (roads cut through the jungle, water pipes laid) when lava came down the hill and skirted a little hillock and surrounded it, leaving a little patch of uncleared trees. Since there was suddenly no access road, the land value plummeted to ~$500/acre, while the lava field on the "flats” nearer the ocean sells for $40,000/acre.
Ferrocement construction, bamboo construction, solar heat and electricity, hydroponic food production, zillions of fruit trees, raised-bed composted gardens, satellite Internet, peaceful/spiritual people, …
Minor issue: “vog”: volcanic smog. I plan to design “voggles”; goggles flushed with clean air to eliminate eye irritation when necessary, and perhaps a full rebreather for intense vog.
I plan to buy as much acreage as possible to establish said community.
