sustainability / social change
Values we would like to see “grow” on this site can be summed up in the concept of sustainable development: growing some of our own food; supporting local organic farmers in farmers’ markets or in a community-supported agriculture (CSA); reducing, reusing, recycling; avoiding buying food and other items that contribute to the destruction of local economies and the environment. We want to share time in the garden, meals at the dinner table, and other activities with the people we live with. We seek open communication and a deep expression of feelings. We expect those wishing to join us to have a commitment to these values and goals as well.
Community founders are also very involved in progressive politics, and although not a requirement, would welcome people who share their passion for planetary transformation.
