- Community With Opening
Our community is young, with only a few families having bought into a piece of land in central Tennessee (abundant natural resources, no state income tax, low cost of living, and no building codes in this county make for ease and simplicity in low cost eco housing, plentiful jobs and low unemployment rate in nearby areas – predominantly conservative culture)
We share the values of Voluntaryism (www.Voluntaryism.com) and seek to bring other like-minded (and like-valued) people into our community as we begin the long, arduous, and fun experience of building an ecovillage from the ground up. We are hoping to bring in serious people who will stick around for the long haul and be our lifelong friends neighbors and enhance our community with their skills, their voices, and their hearts. We hope to bring a healthier culture and community to our members as well as Organic NON gmo food options. (Independence from the system is a goal)
While we get to know new members through a workstay or rental program, our goal is to sort out any bad apples and bring in the best people (after all – we will be neighbors the rest of our lives quite possibly!) We are particularly hoping to attract people with a skillset in organic agriculture (especially the business side of it!) and seek to create income-producing businesses here on the land in the form of co-ops to employ members.
This is a wonderful place to live, and wonderful people involved – we hope to meet the next member of our small family soon! If you feel like you might be a fit with us, please don’t hesitate to drop us a line.
*Statement of Purpose: Voluntaryists are advocates of non-political, non-violent strategies to achieve a free society. We reject electoral politics, in theory and in practice, as incompatible with libertarian principles. Governments must cloak their actions in an aura of moral legitimacy in order to sustain their power, and political methods invariably strengthen that legitimacy. Voluntaryists seek instead to delegitimize the State through education, and we advocate withdrawal of the cooperation and tacit consent on which State power ultimately depends.*
