How can we care for a place if we’re not there, day after day, year after year, paying attention?

Self-Reliance, Right Livelihood, and Economic “Realities”

Posted on March 7, 2013 by

Life in a small rural ecovillage can mean embracing complex choices while balancing idealism with necessity.

Let's make the communities movement thrive!

We have been gifted a limited-time incentive grant. For every new monthly donor, FIC receives an additional $100! Now is the time to join for as little as $5 per month. This funding is crucial for our mission to support intentional communities as pathways towards a more just and sustainable world. 

Your donation gives belonging and hope for the future.
