Founded in 1997 in Saint Paul, Minnesota's Midway area, our small "community" of between 4 and 6 adults has always been focused on a practical and unpretentious version of "intentional community". Rather than pretending to have lofty ideals of social perfection, we just make an effort in what ever ways each of us are able to be more intentional about how we live our lives.
We have no religious affiliation or requirements, but welcome all spiritual seekers.
Members of the community are all busy professionals, but we do make time for community activities including attending local art events, camping, and gardening.
We buy all food collectively and each person cooks one night per week.
We have five bedrooms, one for each person, 2 bathrooms, and have a guest bedroom complete with bedding, side table, and futon.
