The Farm Conference
Come to The Farm Community Conference to set your course for the future: Life In Community!

For many of us who now live in community, this has become our life’s work. But every single person started out with a basic
commitment to change direction and follow a path that would lead to community
– whether we knew it or not!

When people ask me how to get started, how to change their life, I tell them to set a goal. Think about where you want your life to be 10 years from now.

Now consider your half way point. Where will you be in 5 years? Paint a picture in your mind of the life you desire. Your greatest hopes and aspirations.

Two years from now is right around the corner. To achieve where you want to be into two years, you need to make changes in your life that will set the tone for the next year, the next month, even the next week. What will you do today?

One of the strongest steps you can take to set yourself firmly on the path to community, is to attend the Conference on Community and Sustainability here at The Farm. And the amazing thing is… I have seen the results of this over and over again.

Marty was at last year’s conference. He went back home to Seattle, packed up his stuff, and has been living here at The Farm since last September. Rhiannon came 2 years ago and made her move to our community just a few months later. Rick attended 12 years ago and has been with us for a decade now. He found a partner here and they have built a new home. He now runs our radio station and is the bass player in multiple bands. And these are just the folks I know directly.

There have been folks who were living in communities that have needed to re-inspire their vision. Others find they leave here fired up to buy a homestead and fulfill their personal vision of sustainable living on the land or build community in an urban setting. Some make the decision to hit the trail, exploring other communities until they find the place perfectly suited for them. It is all about recognizing that the time to live the life of your dreams is now, and getting started!

I believe that we are all energy beings… but even the strongest battery needs to be recharged from time to time. The purpose of conferences such as this one is to pass through the community generator, to surround ourselves with like-minded people who share our vision of a peaceful and sustainable world.  This is one of the best ways to build up our strength and carry on.

I hope to see you here in May! Now take the next step and register today.
