Black Oaks Community – Center for Sustainable & Renewable Living
In our final episode of Planet Community season 1, we travel to Black Oaks Center for Sustainable & Renewable Living, where Jafunza and Fred Carter are teaching others and themselves how create communities that can make up a world that will work for all people and the planet, together.
What are Intentional Communities?
It’s easiest to think of an intentional community as a place. But at their core, intentional communities are about relationships of sharing. People sharing space, sharing resources, sharing lives.
What are Different Types of Communities?
If you’ve seen one intentional community you’ve seen them all, right? Intentional communities actually come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes only limited by the imagination of the people who start them.
We also host additional videos on FIC’s Facebook Videos, including live streaming some events, panels, q&a’s, interviews, webinars, and fun interactive events like #GiveitAwayTuesday.
Here is an insightful selection from those videos:
Landing Your Community – How to Find, Fund, and Connect with Your Land Together
