Currently, there is an opening for one new (member/household). Community is accepting applications from prospective new members
We support each other in our livelihoods, spiritual growth, arts and crafts, and other projects. The land is owned in common, but we each have our own house, income, car, tools, etc.
We have 1,100 acres of land, 30 acres cleared, and the balance woodland that has been protected for over 55 years. A resident member may sell, bequeath, or rent their residence subject to approval of the other members. The number of households is limited to 10 and they are situated around the original farm. The residents agreement restricts toxins from being used on the land such as pesticides/herbicides. Most of the 1100 acres are left “forever wild.”
