The project itself is in it’s infant stage but the vision is clear: creating a sustainable community with emphasis on low budget, low consumption and as high a level of self sufficiency in terms of food and energy as possible. A community which would be built on healthy relationships and on balance between personal freedom and mutual activities (both psychological and physical).
I’m constructing a tiny house on wheels as this is by far the cheapest and easiest way to create one’s own space to live. I decided for this approach due to the fact that I don’t have any large savings but wanted to start now and not wait any longer. This type of dwelling also makes possible to change the location easily if any problems with location should arise. That’s why I’m looking for people who share the same view on housing and the way of living in general. I would like to start small and in the process develop good relations with local people.
I have many ideas about how to create a place which would provide us with food, shelter and opportunities to fund ourselves, but I’m most definitely open for input from others. There’s nothing more satisfying than to create something together. In my opinion the foundation of the project should be set on some basic mutual values which would enable it, to organically evolve into something we all dream about and beyond. I would like to use social and event planing tools like Dragon dreaming for the dreaming phase of the project, and for the practical… well, one just has to pick a shovel and start 🙂
Apart from the purely practical part, which is by all means important, my aim is for us to create a community which is psychologically stable. With clear communication and a healthy proportion between community practices and much needed personal space. That’s why this community needs mature individuals, who are able to work out their difficulties and also be able to talk about them openly. I’m not religiously inclined, nor do I mind any personal paths, different form my own, as long as they’re not being intrusive. Life is life and anyone is experiencing it in his/her own way.
Last but not least: Greece, especially Crete, tends to be chaotic sometimes and people might react differently as we’re used to in central Europe. However, they might also surprise you in a positive way. By creating the Prasinopolis village, a certain amount of chaos and uncertainty on different levels and areas should be expected, especially in it’s initial phase.
So, my dear fellow dreamers, explorers and andventurers. If you hear a calling, get in contact. Let’s talk and dream together and maybe we’ll find out we’re going in the same directions and can be companions for some part of the jurney.
