We are environmentally aware humans who are interested in exploring ways to reduce our impact on the planet while living well and helping to heal the natural world. We recognize that nature's own ecosystems offer a powerful model for how to do that. In nature, materials, energy and information flow freely among all life forms, without any kind of cost accounting or debt obligation.
We want to create resilient local ecosystems within the human sphere that emulate the healthy exchanges within the natural ones. Our main way of doing that (so far!) is by coming together to freely exchange material goods, services, and information without any sort of accounting or use of money. These Meetups are called "LRE eco-flow gatherings."
Do you agree that it's time for the human species to find new ways to sustainably survive and prosper while still preserving the beauty, diversity, and abundance of the natural world? Are you interested in taking part in a real experiment to explore the potential of money-free exchanges? Would you like to be part of a mutually supportive tribe / family / community of like-minded, freely giving and receiving humans? If so, please join us and come to one of our events to see how the experiment is going.
All prospective members should read the background documents before coming to a gathering. Click on "pages" in the top bar to get started.
We are centered in the central San Francisco Peninsula, but everyone is welcome at our Meetups no matter where they live. In time, it would be great to welcome new hosts in other cities for our eco-flow gatherings.
We hope to meet you soon, give you lots of cool stuff, and receive some cool stuff from you too!
