Have you ever heard of Dancing Rabbit Eco Village? It’s an intentional community of around 50 people in rural northeast Missouri. Their goal is to live sustainable and socially rewarding lives. I found out about them before I ever put up this blog and will definitely plan a visit in the future, it sounds like an amazing place to learn, grow, and live with the land.
Community members help each other build different kinds of homes using natural building techniques, recycled, salvaged, and renewable materials. They also have an internship/work-exchange opportunity that is worth a look for any of you interested in learning. I bet that would be an awesome experience. One that I would love to take part in.
Anyway, the main purpose of this post is not only to tell you about Dancing Rabbit, but to announce that there is an opportunity to purchase neighboring land right next to the village. There are currently 80 acres of land for sale along with a 4 bedroom home. They are asking $240,000 and Dancing Rabbit is willing to help find friendly loans and/or put together multiple parties to help a deal go through.
This sounds like a great opportunity for the right people to come together to form a tiny house community near like minded people. The 4 bedroom house can serve multiple creative purposes.
There is also a 25 by 36 foot garage on the property which would make a great place for woodworking and putting together tiny houses.
I can picture a few people getting together and using the house to live in while utilizing the garage to build tiny houses to create a community here. And who knows, you may have the help of up to 50 like minded neighbors.
The house seems suitable for multiple residents as it has a main kitchen as well as one in the basement. Perfect for a group of people getting together to build a community. Spread the word and let’s hope an interesting deal falls through.
