Sustainable Living Practices
A basic premise for Pilot House is that Intentional Community is a personal adventure that explores real frontiers of human social experience and that Community must therefore be intentionally accomplished. An open conversation policy provides our basis for organizing community process, addressing individual interests, evaluating our progress, and meeting the challenges in a cooperative living arrangement.
There are no philosophical or devotional practices required of members in this community, however an honest respect for any chosen by others is essential, and personal practices must not impose on others.
Anyone interested in visiting with us is welcome anytime. Shorter term living arrangements can be made on an individual basis. Resident guests here pay $120 while completing an assigned work contribution of 30 hours over a month, providing an opportunity to explore your interest in partnering in this project.
An underlying interest of this project is to define and build a working financial model of community that benefits from shared equity practices and property held in common. This model is oriented to resolving the economic and material demands imposed by our established dominant society, advancing individual opportunities to fully explore life’s greater offerings. All continuing household members make on-going, agreed upon contributions of the money and work resources needed to build out operational elements of this community, creating their own specific opportunities for equitable co-ownership positions in it
Adding a second property to our community structure now allows organizing it around Pilot House being purposed mainly for residences, with our newer location providing a community house, additional room for micro farming, and association with an urban eco village there adjacent to a private nature preserve.
Please accept my invitation, if you like, to help advance a work in progress, and further chart its course.
