Senior Activists Living Together

(Linesville, Pennsylvania, United States)

Mission Statement:

Equality, Peace, and Struggle

Community Description:

At SALT we are bringing people together from a diversity of backgrounds to work cooperatively, live sustainably, participate in consensus, and combat injustice through writing and direct action. There will be an emphasis on senior care, but people of all ages are more than welcome. Community members are also free to come and go as they please and stay as long as they wish.

  • Open to new Members: Yes
  • Additional Comments: To each their own.

    Any

Government

  • Decision Making: Consensus (everyone agrees)

Economics

  • Dues, Fees, or Shared Expenses: Yes
  • Shared Income: Partial share of income
  • Required Labor Contribution: No
  • Additional Comments: This may change. But as of now, we just need a (preferably shared) flow of money to pay for utilities for the houses, invest in projects (wind energy, organic vegetables, chickens, repair, construction, etc. based on what we decide through consensus), and pay for food. So minimal sharing as far as income goes as of now. (See Regular Fees)

    But due to current predicaments, it would be valued.It would be preferred if all members contributed in some way or another.

    $700.00 per month for utilities. (This will change as we install wind turbines etc. in the near future).

Sustainability Practices

Lifestyle

  • Shared meals: 2-5 times per week
  • Dietary Choice or Restrictions: Not at all important – people may eat however they individually choose.
  • Additional Diet Comments: We hope to have at least one meal a day together at the farm.

    We hope to grow a large number of it in the near future. But as of now it is 0%. We hope that members with the desire and drive will build what they wish. What we collectively and individually decide.

    We will accommodate.

    All will be accommodated.

    Free to use

    Free to use, but prohibited indoors.

Additional Comments

We have one location on a farm in Linesville and the other in the college town of Meadville.
