Add Your Comment on Co-ordination Co-op
Tuntable Falls Community emerged from the Aquarius Festival 1973. The community has changed extensively since its formation, though some aspects can never change--the valley we live in is one unchanging aspect: nature is respected and assisted to reclaim its right to grow. There is a focus on preservation and protection of our rain-forest home with development as minimal impact. Members live separately from each other and, while adhering to our rules, may choose their own lifestyles. There are no enforced communal practices, though we encourage energy contributions toward projects like buildings, weed control, reafforestation, fire prevention, administration, and social support. All ages and all religious, political, and general views are represented in a spirit of tolerance and respect with monthly meetings providing a venue for decision making and discussion. While we may be granted the right to occupy a piece of land, we do not own it. We own only the materials of any buildings we may erect; all the lands remain in common ownership. We are discovering, learning, and perfecting modes of living; works of art; forms of communication; methods of awareness; and skills of communication, craft, and construction--sharing responsibility for the quality of all life.
