Community Description

Our New Earth Village
Imagine several hundred people coming together to co-create a New Earth Community.
A new model for cooperative community living.
Together we invest. All real estate and businesses are owned in common..
We own and manage all property, together. We govern as one heart.
Everyone is family. Everyone is needed. We have real purpose.
We care, share, we contribute. Always. We exchange our professions, tools, skills, talents, products and services. Freely.
All daily work, our contributions, hold the same value as any other.
Money is rarely exchanged and only when necessary.
Together we establish our abundant New Earth FREE Economy.

Close to nature and magical outdoor adventures.
