I'll try to keep this short and sweet as I'm looking for resources (videos, books, websites) that can help me articulate and understand all the moving components to building out an open collective. Based on the things that I'm seeing its time to take action on my 36 acres and make the move to sustainable living. I'll be looking for like-minds along the way and trying to figure out all the logistics, the dynamics, and finding a way to keep it equitable for all that are involved.
There are many different things to consider. Are peopel the right fit for each other? Do we share the same values? WHat is our vision, or goal? How do you divide up contributions of time, money, resources? What would be equitable for someone to be interested in investing into your land and build out? What are the long-term or short-term things to consider?
So many questions to start considering this idea, but would love to absorb knowledge of succesful communities that have done the same in the past. Any direction you can give will be greatly valued and appreciated. I hope to start to build out a vision and plan soon enough to share and find like-minds to jump on this. I have a gorgeous 36 acre plot in green country central Oklahoma. It has a fully stocked 2 acre pond, and I want to run cattle, goats, sheep, chickens, and perhaps find 3-4 families that can invest into a sustainable community.
I’m often in OK visiting family just outside Fletcher...are you anywhere nearby?? I’d love to stop by and see your little piece of heaven!!
I’m a gypsy/nomad at the moment...checking out intentional communities...being a work-trader...I love to build gardens...so am always willing to barter for room/board....
