Time is of the essence Posted 5/12/2013
Well, have you heard; we’ve just reach a new high of 400 ppm of carbon dioxide. Unless huge swaths of good arable land is made available to people (soon) to begin creating large, mostly self sufficient cooperative communities AND people would actually want to do this, it appears our collective gooses are cooked.
What else would (actually) change the present paradigm? Sharing, cooperating and being very close together is much less energy consumptive. Homesteads are too far apart, the cities are too far from essential natural resources. Nothing wrong with trade and barter, but why not relegate that to locally rare or specialty items?
And the added benefit would be we’d be happier and healthier.

New Community in Warrenton, VA Posted 5/8/2013
Forming a new community in Warrenton, VA! Looking for individuals or families who value health, sustainability, and independence. We're far enough out in the country to see the stars and build an agricultural life, and close enough in to the DC Metro Area to benefit from the strong economy, maintain good jobs, live in an educated, (relatively) progressive area, and enjoy an opera at the Kennedy Center now and then! Community features planned over the next year include a Waldorf-inspired cooperative school, tool workshop, organic vegetable and flower gardens, chickens, bees, goats, swimming pool, and cabins/yurts for interns or long-term guests. We wish to cultivate diversity in all ways including intellectual and experiential, and are open to people of all backgrounds and interests. We range in age from 5 years to 63 years, and tend to be liberal, vegetarian, artistic, financially responsible, socially alert, optimistic, easy-going, agnostic. Participation options are pretty open, and include extended visits ($300/month plus 15 hours/wk work exchange) and residencies ($5,000 for a 5-year land lease or $15,000+ for permanent ownership). We can offer practical assistance in building a dwelling and finding work in the area if necessary, and possibly help with financing depending on all kinds of things. We look forward to hearing from you! Email is best, and/or you can check out our website for plenty of outdated, shot-in-the-dark information. :)
