Memorial Day Weekend, May 22–24, 2015
Summertown TN
An FIC Co-Sponsored Event 


It is one thing to read about it, think about it, and carry a picture of an ideal in your mind.
It is quite another to experience community firsthand, to see it before you and gain the knowledge of what can be accomplished when people put their energy together for many years, decades of effort, working in unison toward common goals.

Whether you are seeking life in community, or the inspiration to go off-grid and start your own homestead, want to rekindle the spirit of your organization, or simply recharge your spirit within…

Turn that spark in your heart into a raging fire! Join us at The Farm Community on May 22-24 for the Conference on Community and Sustainability.
