Mission Statement:

Spirit and Right livlihood

Community Description:

We are a forming community. We intend to grow much of the food we’ll enjoy, to work cooperatively, and make decisions by consensus.

We currently meet online using Yahoo IM. Contact Dan for more information.

We’ll honor the essence of religion by providing a place where we’ll share each other’s paths.

We will provide for ourselves through community projects, such as creating retreat space, growing herbal and medicinal plants for marketing or other onsite or mail order enterprises. These would not preclude individual cottage industries or smaller group projects or programs that would enhance the viability of our community.

We will explore right livelihood, and peaceful existence, and reach out to the greater community and world to provide what we can to help others in whatever way we come to feel meets the community’s ability and desires.
