Ive got a smallish 3 acre fruit/herb only farm in the US tropics, deep pacific ocean, Its my dream come true! and so, greeting to all of you from Dragon Garden Saipan!
Ive been working on it for five years, planting exotic fruits that no one here has. Ive rented a 2 bedroom “apartment” in an 8800 sq ft building, in the middle of the jungle, on the very quiet side of the island, the cliffy beautiful side. Im the only one here, in the building, I can rent the entire 2 story concrete building for pretty cheap if I want to, so im dreaming of artist members who love the jewelry, forging and gem arts, and want to help develope those here on this small US island. Wire wrappers, gem facetors, carvers, steel forgers, DJ’s, mineral people, fire spinners, the tribe of Dragons is forming at Dragon Garden Saipan!
A little about the island, fast and to the point: 84 degress year round, NO WINTER AT ALL!! Seriously it doesnt get below 75 like ever… ever.
The beach is 2 miles away, 2 of them, white sand, lots of corral, hardly anyone ever there. ANother major beach is just 1 mile but I dont go there very often. Fish is pretty cheap everywhere, everything else is about twice what you would pay for it in Tennesee or Ohio or wherever central US. I guess that makes it on par with the cost of food on the coasts. Never fear, always a half price rack in every grocery, and there is a nice grocery store less than 300 yards away, pretty amazing considering my farm is basically alone on the side of a road, on the side of a hill, on the side of an island. DGS is at 350 foot elevation off of the ocean, and the island tops out at 1500 feet. The views up on top of the island are magnificent, and its a ten minute drive to the top. The whole island is 14 miles long, and five wide, so you can go anywhere in about 15 minutes max. I dont go out much, I love working on my farm with my chicky wikies. No other animals here, and no predators on island at all! nothing to kill you but the sharks, and its best to let them stay in the deep end while I frolic like a child in the shallows. (no one dies from sharks here)
55,000 people here, english speaking, US dollar using and US owned. Hardly any crime at all! No visa needed for US citizen, super cheap visa of 14 days or 45 days for everyone else! Our island lets EVERYONE in, upon arrival, and thats why we used to have 600,000 chinese tourists a year before the covid thing took over and shut our island down. Right now we are running about 15,000 Korean tourists a week, Japanese are starting to come in, and Chinese will be on the way someday.
SO im looking for great people who can afford 500$ a month total to live here, and if I can find 3 or more then I can rent the whole place and get crazy! I had taken over the whole building at one point but the management company came along one day and politly asked me to move all of my antique anvils, drill presses, carving studio, cannabis grow tents and everything back over to my side, and so I did. Its been a wee bit tight since then, but Im workng it out. As a lover of jades and agates and quartzes oh my, well you know us types, gems and chainmaille and tools laying everywhere. Havent imported all the tools from central US yet, so I cant do any of my souls work, but the farm keeps me happy and busy all day long, and with great member/pwner/renters here, its just a breeze.
I keep dreaming of dynamic, agnostic or chill, hyper intelligent beach addicts who want to work “hardly” for a few hours in the morning/afternoon sun, and then shoot off to the beach every other day for a nice swim in the rocky pools, or a hike along the shore lined in 50 foot tall cliffs, or no cliffs at all, depeneding on which beach. Some of the canyons here with tiny beaches at the ends of them are to die for. Just gorgeous.
So, if anyone wants to get on a plane and leave the US drama show behind, come do a camping thing with me for crazy cheap( 50 a week+ food and a little work, bring a tent), or get a room and look at the dozen micro companies I have designed here( I would love to find business partners for some of the unique Ideas I have here), let me know all about you and what you are all about, and if everything is chill and sweet, get on a plane and say good bve to taxes(yea seriously we dont pay federal taxes), winter, drama shows and prohibition forever! We are legal rec, and proud of it, no drama here, everyone is just happy.
Tobacco use outside, Im growing some for you already. Low alcohol use, prefer no hard liqour, and absolutly no hard drugs of course. DGS is a place to heal your soul from the crazy mainland, and find your land connection, dream big or go home. You can stay with me for 3 months while you find your own property here if you want, Im cool with that.
Hope to hear from you(another exclamation point?). Yep! The party is waiting, and you are the guest of honor!!
