Hello all, my name is Seth and I joined this community because I have vast concerns regarding the future of humanity and those I love. Through reading and studying the likes of Hunter S. Thompson, Daniel Quinn, C.S. Lewis, and the Tao Te Ching. I begin to form my own self-philosophy and take on what direction I should put forth in life to help make a change for better living. Which of course all of us do at either some point or just during our daily lives. I wanted to do more, I wanted to make ideas not just theories but realistic possibilities.
Years have gone by and I have of course changed dramatically, but my angle on life has not, rather it has become more strengthened. And over time even grown into genuine ambition of how I want to live my life. Right off I know a few of you are probably saying ya ya we all know, be a good person, lift the seat, replace the beer in the fridge, don’t drink and drive, share, play nice and all those things….but I’m talking about a little something else.
After a few years now of researching, diverging and schooling in construction and green practices. I’ve decided what I want to do is build an eco-village in the Northwest region of British Columbia. Either in the central-south area of Vancouver Island or along the mid-west coastline, above the Cariboo Chilcotin Coast area. Originally I was thinking outside Bella Colla, but I’m starting to shy away from that location due to its well too rural-ness. Anyway the purpose of this place would be to just flat out live better lives. Work when one wants to work, and do what one wants to do; within the laws of life.
As of now we have formed into a tentative community of 10-14 people. A mix of all ages, races and sexes. We’re going to form a community owned and operated company so that everyone will have the option of medical, retirement, life and other insurances. Then within that company have divisions made up of our job braches. My girlfriend is going to school for sustainable agriculture (the type of farming where you set it up then do half the work of regular farming) she would run and operate a weekly produce market.
Im shooting to open my own green construction firm with my father. And a friend of my is intending to be a electrician/mechanic for hire. Anyway…clearly it’s a long shot of a goal, but its my life goal and it’s the only thing I’ve ever really put stock into.
