What are People


“…critical for the sustainability of civilization…”

The Exit and Build Land Summit brings together an extraordinary collection of really world class speakers who have the knowledge that I think is critical for the sustainability and survivability of human civilization

– Mike Adams

“…It was fantastic…”

The farm tours were great! It was fantastic for these people to show us homesteading life.

Land Summit Attendee

“…do it, you won’t be disappointed…”

The Exit and Build Land Summit has been awesome. And, I would say to anybody out there who’s considering doing this next year, do it, you won’t be disappointed.

Land Summit Attendee

Modern cities and suburbs are the most dangerous (and tyrannical) places to live

The World Economic Forum, the UN, and governments around the world are quietly converting major (and minor) cities into “smart” or “15-minute” cities.

They’ll be outfitted with the worst kind of modern tech to track and trace everything you buy, everywhere you go, and everyone you interact with.

They’ll regulate your energy use, monitor your carbon output, force you into a social credit score system, tie your whole life to a digital ID, and be able to lock you down during the next Plandemic. 

But that’s not the only reason “awake” folks are looking for a way to flee from cities and surrounding suburbs…

Urban violence, crime, and chaos are ruining lives.

Criminals are robbing people at gunpoint and stealing cars in broad daylight. Most stores within city limits are locking up almost all their merchandise for fear of being mass robbed. 

The homelessness crisis is exploding and government policies are only making it worse. 

And civil unrest is exploding in universities and cities from the Israel-Gaza conflict. 

Plus, it’s an election year, which brings more uncertainty, angst, and politically-driven protests and violence. 


The economy is in a tailspin and most people can barely afford to exist.

The cost of living is exploding, especially in metro areas. 

Families can’t afford food for dinner and gas to go to work. A staggering number of folks don’t have jobs. Half of America is living paycheck to paycheck. 

And central banks around the globe are stocking up on gold (and Bitcoin) to pad their balance sheets – a sign they’re preparing for the worst.

But a 500-year-old “Prophecy of The Eagle and The Condor” reveals a path for us to live safely, peacefully, self-sufficiently, and free … together

(while escaping smart cities, civil unrest, and the next great recession)

The Eagle and the Condor Prophecy is an ancient omen from the tribes of the Americas.

The path of the “Eagle” is the path of the mind, the masculine, and the people of “The North.” This is the domain of technology, industry, capitalism, and individualism.

The path of the “Condor” is the path of the heart, the feminine, and the people of “The South.” This is the domain of wisdom, intuition, cooperation, and community.

The prophecy states that the Eagle would almost wipe out the Condor over a centuries-long period of time…

Then one day…

The Eagle and the Condor would have the chance to reunite and fly together…

Ushering in a new beautiful age of higher consciousness, healing, and connection between peoples and Earth resulting in peace, prosperity, and freedom for those who participate in this unification of modern technology with ancestral wisdom.

The Exit and Build Land Summit brings together the Eagle and the Condor to create high-tech, self-sufficient, off-grid homesteads coupled with freedom-loving intentional communities in the country

Combined, they allow us to fly away from the technocrats and tyrants holding us down to create a new world of liberty and prosperity for our families and generations to come. 

Imagine raising enough of your own food to never worry about inflated grocery store prices again. Or being a part of a community that produces over half of the food needs for everyone living in it. 

Imagine being able to power your home with the sun, breaking your dependence on the energy cartel. 

Now imagine working within a community on your land that’s independent of the larger society, existing peacefully and prosperously outside of the Great Reset technocratic agenda while cultivating a rich connection with the earth, animals, and each other. 

This is the way to peace and quiet from the rat race of modern society. 

It’s the way back to how human beings are meant to live in harmony with nature. 

And it’s the way forward toward a sustainable future of unbreakable freedom communities that expands liberty for your family today and for future generations to come. 

But there’s a warning to the Prophecy of The Eagle and The Condor… 

It’s not set in stone … We must fulfill it by working together…

What You Will


The Exit & Build Land Summit 4 returns LIVE and IN PERSON to the iconic Bastrop Convention Center in Bastrop, Texas on on May 17th-19th

It’s the largest gathering of homesteaders, permaculturists, regenerative agriculturists, land entrepreneurs, rural real estate veterans, modern survivalists, and intentional community builders

Get ready for 3 days of in-depth presentations and workshops showing you how to live free and prosperously no matter your age, income, experience, skill, knowledge, or circumstances

You’ll get hard-won, high-level, PROVEN strategies, tools, and resources for living free in the country from a diverse range of speakers

Hear from giants of permaculture, seasoned community creators, veteran homesteaders, renowned survivalists, generational ranchers, and many more freedom-loving experts sharing their best strategies for returning to the land and living free in your own self-sufficient community outside of the control of the technocrats and tyrants locking down major cities and suburbs.

You’ll have the chance to go on off-site Farm Tours tours and training sessions on May 16th & 20th

All Land Summit attendees will have the option of purchasing an affordable bonus ticket to experience one or more Farm Tours the day before and after the Land Summit conference.

You’ll get to visit thriving homesteads, food forests, permaculture sites, communities, and more with guided tours revealing the exact techniques and strategies these property owners use to produce tons of food every year while improving their local communities and expanding their personal freedom and well-being.

You’ll experience exclusive, hands-on workshops from select speakers training you in practical skills you can use immediately after the conference to improve your prosperity

At last year’s Land Summit, we featured workshops covering unique gardening methods, nonviolent communication techniques, tools for finding the perfect homestead property, raising funding for your regenerative community, and a whole lot more.

These workshops are often one of the most valuable parts of the entire Land Summit because they almost instantly upgrade your ability to create more freedom and prosperity. Plus, they cut your trial and error time in half by learning what works from real experts.

You’ll get to shake hands, share drinks, and form powerful relationships with many of the speakers and all of the attendees in between talks and workshops and during nighttime parties

The Land Summit attracts some of the most productive and down-to-Earth “doers” in the worlds of homesteading, truth, and freedom. 

Enduring friendships have been made here. Romantic partners have met here. Businesses have been formed here. Communities have found new members. Participants have worked together to create their own communities after the event. 

This goes way beyond mere “networking.” Everyone gets a little smarter and a little freer after the extraordinary conversations and connections you’ll have with attendees AND speakers.  with the bright minds in attendance.

You’ll participate in the exclusive Intentional Community Matchmaking Session

This has easily become the #1 event EVERYONE looks forward to at the Land Summit.

All attendees break into small groups based on where you want to move (if you’re moving) or where you currently live – i.e. Texas, Tennessee, Mexico – and our small group leaders will facilitate discussions and networking.

The Community Matchmaking Session will:

Rita went from feeling alone to creating a 7-acre homestead and intentional community (while finding several like-minded friends in the process) after the 2021 Land Summit

“We went from not wanting anyone on our property to creating our own little intentional community. We currently have 2 full-time members and have 2 more making plans to arrive soon.

We made friends with other like-minded people, which in these times, is gold. It helped crystalize “who” our people are. Suddenly we went from feeling isolated and overwhelmed on our 7-acre property to having true friends who are willing to help us daily.

Come find your people at the Exit and Build Summit! You don’t have to do it alone. Be open to receiving new ideas on how to make your goals and dreams happen. All these great minds in the same room, magic happens and you will crush all the barriers stopping you right now.”


You’ll get lunch catered every day of the Land Summit conference (May 17th-19th)

We’re bringing in healthy, tasty, farm-to-table and locally catered lunches for all attendees.

We’re making it easy for everyone to eat together regardless of your diet. 

We have options for those who eat gluten-free, vegetarian/vegan, or carnivore.

Lunch will be served inside of the Bastrop Convention Center which offers another great opportunity to get to know other attendees and build valuable relationships.

Travel and Lodging

You’ll have your pick of high-quality hotels near the Bastrop Convention Center (plus the airport is only 25 minutes away from the event)

We’re making traveling to Bastrop and staying here as smooth and comfortable as possible. 

If you’re flying in from out of town, you’ll only have a 25 minute commute from the airport. Lyft and Uber are both available. 

There are numerous hotels surrounding the Bastrop Convention Center. Again, you’ll have no problem using Lyft or Uber. Also, many attendees end up carpooling together. There are also vehicle rentals available at the airport and in Bastrop.

PLUS, May 16th & 20th are Farm Tour days (optional for Land Summit attendees) – Tour permaculture sites, homesteads, and regenerative agriculture farms around Central Texas 

Andrea and Steve took MASSIVE ACTION after the 2022 Land Summit and bought a 20-acre property and have never been happier or freer

Hear their story below:

Choose Your Path

How The Exit and Build Land Summit will help you achieve YOUR ideal version of freedom in the country

Our goal is to help you on your unique journey to achieve maximum freedom, prosperity, connection, and joy through self-sufficient and communal living in the country. 

But we’re not all starting in the same place or trying to go to the same destination.

So we’ve created a simple “matrix” below you can use to pinpoint exactly where you are currently and where you want to go.

Simply choose the right point on the matrix below to see how The Exit and Build Land Summit will help you achieve your vision after applying the knowledge, skills, and connections you’ll gain from attending. 


Then You’ll Learn How to

You might live in the city without a patch of land to call your own. Or perhaps you have a little acreage in the suburbs or country but you dream of having a whole lot more.

We’re gonna help you get the land you need to fulfill your dreams and goals. 

Virtually every speaker at The Exit and Build Land Summit owns land. At every past event, we’ve had several speakers present on how exactly to locate good land for homesteading and community building, how to buy it, what to know before you buy, and so much more. 

You’ll hear from rural real estate veterans, land entrepreneurs, homesteaders, ranchers, and farmers. 

You’ll also get to meet scores of other people who also want to buy land. Some of them will even be interested in buying land with you in order to make it more affordable if that’s an option you want to exercise. 

Regardless of how much land you want or where you want it, you’ll pick up loads of powerful techniques and strategies to make it happen. 

Plus, in the meantime, before you (eventually) get the land you want, you’ll discover how to start homesteading with what you have, even if that means just a few plants in a closet. Because we’re all about taking action NOW even if you don’t have everything you want yet.

You don’t have to own land in order to be a part of a community of freedom-loving friends and family. 

There are already HUNDREDS of these communities in existence. 

A number of speakers and attendees run these communities and they’re looking for new, cool members like YOU. 

You’ll be shown how to find and connect with communities across the United States and other countries that match the values and lifestyle you desire. 

Plus, The Exit and Build Land Summit facilitates multiple networking and relationship-building events to match community owners with potential community members like you. 


Then You’ll Learn How to

The Exit and Build Land Summit is one of the largest gatherings of experienced and professional permaculturists, homesteaders, gardeners, and ranchers. 

If you want to turn your property into a food-producing machine that works in alignment with nature and is not only sustainable but regenerative (producing more and higher-quality food over time), then do everything possible to make it to this summit. 

Between the speakers, hands-on workshops, and optional farm tours, you’re going to receive over a dozen masterclasses in making your land and animals work for you. 

And if you’re the entrepreneurial type, you’ll be shown how many of our presenters have leveraged their land to start food businesses, Bed and Breakfast businesses, event spaces, and more. 

Get ready to profit from your land both personally and financially.

John and Rebecca Bush – the founders and hosts of The Exit and Build Land Summit – closed on a 10-acre homestead in 2021 to escape COVID insanity and has since turned it into a thriving homestead and intentional community with multiple members. 

This summit was started with the intention of helping as many people as possible do the same. And many people have since the very first summit. 

You’ll gain guidance on:

  • How to design your land to facilitate community
  • The various options for cooperative living (i.e. members living under the same roof or members having their own plot and home, and much more)
  • The legal considerations for starting your community without violating any laws
  • How to run a community as a leader while empowering other members
  • Methods of peaceful communication and negotiation

Plus MUCH more. 

Many of us don’t necessarily want to leave our property to live communally or turn our land into a community. 

But we would like to connect and develop relationships with fellow freedom-lovers and self-sufficient homesteaders in our area and elsewhere. 

The Exit and Build Land Summit facilitates multiple networking and relationship-building events to help you find neighbors in your area and others who share your values. 

Plus, you’ll hear how other speakers have created spread out communities by connecting with their existing neighbors and how you can do the same.

If You…
Have Land & Community

Then You’ll Learn How to

Produce more food , become more self-sufficient, and expand your community with more freedom-loving folks

The Exit and Build Land Summit brings together THOUSANDS of people online and in person who are hungry to start or join intentional communities.

Growing your community can be as easy as presenting it at the summit. It’s a virtual guarantee that you’ll receive more than enough applicants interested in joining your community.

One of the key aspects of The Exit and Build Land Summit will be the fan favorite “Community Matching Making” event (which you can read about earlier on this page) where many community owners have found new members.

Plus, you’ll be able to apply everything else you learn at the event to improve your homesteading, permaculture, agriculture, ranching, and any other food production systems you’re running on your land.

The Exit and Build Land Summit 4 goes LIVE on May 17th-19th at the Bastrop Convention Center with workshops, parties, farm to table meals, dozens of speakers, and more!

PLUS, May 16th & 20th are Farm Tour days (optional for Land Summit attendees) – Tour permaculture sites, homesteads, and regenerative agriculture farms around Central Texas


“I listened to a video John Bush did on limiting beliefs … it changed my life. I doubled the income from my business and was able to come here. I always wanted to meet John and Derrick Broze and other people, which seemed out of reach, but I got to meet them and talk to them here.”

“What sets this conference apart from others is that people are intentional – they want to have in-depth conversations about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it … it makes for a phenomenal experience.”

“I’m excited to meet a lot of the people I’ve seen on YouTube and Podcasts over several years and learn from them … it’s been absolutely incredible.”

“It feels great being around these folks … “your people”, your fellow thinkers. I would definitely come again and I recommend other people pull the trigger and do it. It’s been very enlightening and will spark a fire under me after I leave.”

“The people are amazing. We’ve gone to other events from Live Free Academy and they just get better and better. It’s like people are graduating into this new paradigm of living and community. It’s like a family. A lot of excitement. A lot of friendships being made. And you can really feel the love.”

“The whole point of this is for people to see firsthand what are the challenges, what are the benefits, and what do we need to know to return to the land. It’s a precious and priceless opportunity for us to experience that from these homesteaders and farmers themselves. What I love about the farm tours is we’re fast-tracking your learning curve.”

“It’s a gathering of people that want to step away from the old financial system, the old ways of building, the old tech, and all the old systems that tend not to be for our benefit and build new systems – ways to grow their own food, generate their own energy, educate their kids and their community’s kids without outsourcing that to government and corporations.”

“This is an enormous and vibrant community of people. It’s a wonderful example of self-organizing, free market activity. It’s not just about homesteading and growing your own food, that’s a big theme, but there’s all kinds of other information interspersed with that. I’ve made a lot of friends here. The 3 days of presentations and the 2 days of farm tours has been awesome.”

“It’s very refreshing to talk with people and speak your mind without worrying about being judged. I wanted to connect with people who are interested in freedom, who understand the importance of self-reliance. It’s been extremely empowering … a fantastic experience and I can’t wait to do it again next year.”

“I got more out of the first morning session than I expected to get out of the whole weekend.”

“I was pleasantly surprised there were many more people who are fully ready to execute or are already executing. That’s a huge positive that individuals were ready to invite me onto their property or projects. I’m extremely happy I came to build relationships and hear things that I didn’t know before.”

“Although you can sit at home and watch it, when you meet the people in person and get to know the faces and talk to people individually, it brings a more full understanding and satisfaction.”
