We are creating an Intentional Community near Earthaven just South of Black Mountain, N.C.
We are negotiating the purchase of +100 acres and intend to form one or more communities according to the desires of the founders (you?).
Our overall intention is to provide affordable housing and (or) co-housing for a diverse community of singles, families and the elderly (humans in general).
We intend to support permaculture ideals with independent/interdependent sustainable living practices.
We are geared to self-sufficiency and intend to participate in generating our own food, clothing and shelter.
There are several other Intentional Communities in the immediate area with about 150 people of different skills and abilities.
We have the potential to be an example of a self-reliant sustainable community and intend to be a demonstration project that others may duplicate.
Please join with us if you have the desire to participate in the development of this community. We welcome advisors, investors and any level of participation.
We are in the purchase/planning stage so "hands on" land clearing, gardening or home-building will come later.
If you are interested in participating in the hands on work please participate in the planning too.
We need your skills: Grant-writer, networker, business planner, community development, conservation development, permaculture enthusiast, green builder, solar energy, hydro-generation, web-design, natural building, whatever it takes to build a sustainable community....baker, candlestick maker, teacher, indian chief, stuff you know that we don't know we need to know.

    "I did interrupt the meeting once because of rain: to honor the rain and go out and play in it for a bit. My life is proof positive that you don't have to die to be in Heaven."

    "A good beginning. We shared ideas about what Axis Asheville looks like. So far we have simply discussed the Community Catalogue. We may create this or help some current local publisher put it together...­."

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
