Socially conscious community
Our vision is to create a healthy community of diverse and socially conscious individuals in order to steward land through sustainable development and educate through practical application.
Our mission is to bring together a diverse group of dedicated individuals who are searching for healthy, socially conscious, and environmental alternatives to the mainstream unhealthy and fragmented social structure. 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 reach out 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, have bought a house in the Friendly Street area, and are practicing urban permaculture. We consider this a first step and are still looking to grow our network of friends and eventually buy more rural land in three to five years.
