The Terra Frutis community is planning a group land buy of a parcel of land. This area is located about 10 minutes’ walk from the Community Center. We have yet to work out many details, including pricing, but expect it to be somewhere around $10,000 for a ½ hectare lot with 2.5% share of ownership of the total 85-hectare parcel of land. This includes a budget (not yet fully defined) for lot marking, a good access trail, electricity installation (at first grid power then later hydroelectricity) and other property expenses for the first 5 years. You will get your name on the title, a map with your lot, and you will also have to pay for minor occasional property maintenance expenses such as yearly municipal property taxes (about $25 for the whole property), and marking the property boundaries every few years.
Below you can see a map with the general area that we will be dividing.
At your personal plot you can build your own house and start your own homestead while still connecting with the community of Terra Frutis, and benefiting from our experience growing fruit trees. You can even have us manage agricultural workers for you or get your house built. For a small fee you can have access to the Terra Frutis facilities (community center with hot tub, large kitchen, fridge, freezer, washing machine, clothes dryer). If you wish to stay in our accommodation while your house is being built you can either rent or do a work exchange with us.
Contact us if you are interested. Then, we’ll keep you informed when more details will be available.
