Members will work in our community businesses–making tempeh, tofu, wooden masks, paintings, and as mountain guides. These businesses will provide about one-third of our work; the rest will go into the tasks needed to support a rural village of 100 people–organic gardening, milking goats, equipment and building maintenance, office work, and more. Our work schedules of 44 hours each week will be very flexible. In return for member’s labor, the community will provide all basic needs, including housing, food, clothing, etc. Lothlorien will have an intricate community culture.
Our everyday lives will include many recreational activities–social and support groups, performances, music, games, dance, and art. Our culture will value tolerance of diversity and sustainable living. We will share our vehicles, we will build our own buildings, and we will share houses of 10-20 people with smaller multiple-person dwellings for those who sleep together. Some of us will work actively for peace and justice, ecology, and feminism.
We will offer a three-hour tour on many Saturday afternoons; in the future, please call during business hours or email to reserve a place. Our three-week visitor program will be a prerequisite for membership and must be arranged by letter or email well in advance of the proposed stay. Information about visiting will be available on our website or by mail.
