We seek to draw people together who wish to pool financial and material resources, skills, sweat, and visions in an effort to create an intentionally formed community composed of a tight circle of family and friends. Stewardship of the land and sustainable development of the community’s property shall be at the forefront of all community visions and decisions. Children are a key community element as we create a caring and safe “village” setting for community members to raise children and outreach to local youth to help educate and inspire young people in the surrounding area. We will also work towards financial self-sustainability through the formation of a solid foundation for socially conscious small businesses related to healing, education, sustainable living, and sustainable agriculture.
We have settled in Eugene, Oregon and have bought a house in the Friendly Street area. We are growing a small amount of our own food practicing urban permaculture and working to expand our roof top gardening space. We consider this a first step and are still looking to grow our networks, pool resources, and eventually buy more rural land in order to expand.
