Articles document specific strategies employed in cohousing, land trust communities, ecovillages, and elsewhere to create economic accessibility—as well as stories of coping with illness, decision-making quandaries, and elderhood.

Communities Magazine

Since 1972, Communities has been the primary resource for information, issues, and ideas about intentional communities in North America - from urban co-ops to cohousing groups to ecovillages to rural communes. Communities now also focuses on creating and enhancing community in the workplace, in nonprofit or activist organizations, and in neighborhoods, with enhanced coverage of international communities as well. We explore the joys and challenges of cooperation in its many dimensions.

Please subscribe today! If you're already a subscriber, tell your friends about us, or better yet give a gift subscription.

The Communities magazine website features a selection of articles from our quarterly magazine online. We post a handful of articles from each issue so you can get a taste of what Communities offers.
