Intentional Community in East Kent

My good friend Joe is looking at setting up some kind of intentional community in East Kent where he lives. If you’re interested, intrigued, suspicious, or have anything to say about such an idea, I’m sure he’d be pleased to hear from you. http://thetheologyofjoe.wordpress.com/2011/09/29/intentional-community-in-east-kent/

    I started an intentional community over five years ago in Tennessee. We have a bit of a different twist from most intentional communities and we are growing nicely. First, we are not a commune. We believe that personal property ownership is key to accountability, pride of ownership, personal freedom and self-sufficiency.

    That said, we want to restore a sense of community that we believe was the norm generations ago before industrialization isolated us from one another. So, we put a lot of emphasis on helping one another grow our own food, harvesting rainwater, coming up with economical means of making electricity and generally enjoying one another through community events, and homegrown entertainment.

    I don’t like labels, but if we must have one, i guess you could put us in the category of Libertarian Intentional Community. You can learn more about our philosophy and how it’s going from my blog at http://1stvillager.wordpress.com/
    or my new facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/self.sufficient.village?sk=wall.
    BTW, if you find it interesting I could use some likes to get it launched.

    We, too, have been growing an intentional community in Tennessee. We are Christian with a strong emphasis on plain and simple living for the Lord. You can check out our progress @ http://villageofthecross.worpress.com We would welcome in thoughts or comments you might have. May God bless you!
