What type of community do you envision?

Socially: a place where everybody knows everybody personally, while respecting privacy and personal/physical boundaries. Folks look out for and genuinely care for one another. Resources, knowledge and skills are shared freely, without need to monetize or tally every exchange. A safe place where the kids can be free to be free-spirited and grow healthy of mind & body without undue restrictions. Physically: energy-efficient homes utilizing natural and/or recycled materials (not slapping a bunch of solar panels on cheap stick-frames and calling it "green"). Clustered housing /w no roads separating homes; ie, no vehicle traffic through living areas. Shared work space, school/childcare facilities, as well as the common house. Natural resources such as a lake and/or stream, ample space for garden plots & orchards

What skills can you bring to such a community?

I am an A+ Certified PC technician... Otherwise, currently not much except physical labor :D

Introduction

A stay-at-home father of two little ones, I recently had an "awakening" which directed my life towards achieving self-sustainability and resilience; a realization that industrial society is unhealthy and unsustainable
