Thrifty Acres has two new websites because all the information would not fit on one free website. The websites are https://sites.google.com/site/thriftyacres2011/ The second website is https;//sites.google.com/site/sites/site/thriftyacres2011continuedpage2/ . Thrifty Acres will use to a high level any goods and services we purchase as a group. We will honor private time and property of our residents. All residents and guests shall have clean records with the authorities. Thrifty Acres helps us to reduce our expenses by having skilled and talented people using our common kitchen to make soy and rice milk, freeze vegetables, freeze fruit, make soap and other products we need. Thrifty Acres values co-operation. We will have a bulletin board at the common house. There will be a space on there for Sams, Walmart, convenience stores, hardware store, doctors, dentists etc. Each resident will put their lists under the appropriate space. When someone goes to one of these places, that person will buy all the appropriate items. The purchaser will use a Thrifty Acres debit card and cell phone. Thrifty Acres values aging in place. We will bank hours worked.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
