    There is a competition where you can apply with your off-grid project to get free land. The winner of this competition will get a hectare of land, a house, and a connection to the power grid if needed. The homestead is located in Eastern Serbia, in the vicinity of the Rtanj mountain.

    For more info about this initiative go to: www.rootsandflowers.org/the-roots-and-flowers-initiative/

    I for one, will pass on clicking this link. For your first post, this looks a lot like a fishing spam thread.
    Spend some time around here and maybe you will fit in.... or not, your choice.

    Hello @ZoranSunce welcome to the monkey. Your contest is hard to believe. If I give you my name, I could be entered into a contest for free land and a house in Serbia. That seems too good to be true. I see that your facebook page just started last month.

    I noticed not even a goat or anything was included in the prize. I clicked the link and the house is rough. I know for free one can't expect a lot but I think it would need lots of work to weatherproof it. I think you would need a goat or donkey to haul in supplies.

    The application fee put me off. Not interested, even if I had an idea worth having to do with the land.

    Well I personaly know these guys who organise this and they are very green, few guys with big dreams not big NGO.. The idea is to give away land, collect money from fees and buy another land to be given away.. The idea is positive.. What do you think of this? How to make this work? Be constructive

    It seems that some of the thousands who flocked to Rtanj may be offloading real estate that they bought there in the lead up to the 2012 Mayan Calendar end of the world panic. ohno Who knows, 2017 may see some more panic real estate BOL buying.....whomever the elected Prez and Vice Prez happens to be warming seats in the White House.

    I read that it could be a pyramid. But aside from that, I think it would be rough farming there, one would have to choose their crops wisely. Unsure of wild life. I think if I was going to go off grid, I would try it in a country where there was not a language barrier.

    Might be a good place to settle some of those Syrian refugees that are crowding into Serbia and see how they do there.

    I wonder if the Serb's have an Issue with Residents owning FireArms, and I am not talking about PeaShooters, here..... then there is the Water Issue.... Is there any Water on the Property, and if so, who owns the Water Rights.... To many Questions and Zero Answers.... Can anyone say "Pig in a Poke"....

    By serbian law you can own a firearm but you have no right of carry.. and about water.. There is water on the property (tap water using towns water sistem, there is a well that works and you have a stream at the end of the property)...in Serbia there are no water using rigths laws.. You can use rain water, you dont need licence for well etc. The tax for land is 10 euros per hectare per year.. If you have more questions shoot :)
