Hi there! In the next 3-4 years my partner and I are looking to start an intentional community/Co-housing/Eco Village Kind of thing. We about to go on a road trip right now and are going to head from the west coast to the east coast in Late Feb-Early March. We would love to visit folks living in community on the way out.

We are most interested in how people create structures around sharing their space, resources, and the social dynamics of living in the community, particularly in a rural setting.

We both have experience farming and I have some building experience. So we'd be happy to do some free labor if that sweetens the deal!

Hi, Richard

Welcome to the forum!

My suggestion would be to plan your route then look through the Intentional Community Forum for threads in those areas.

We also have a Regional forum where you could look for threads,

Also, pick a city or area where you will be stopping for the night and search for that area if you don't find anything post a thread like this one.

Have a great trip and please wishes for you journey.

Be sure to check out ic.org....the premier website for intentional communities worldwide.  Searchable by keyword and location.  You can get contact information for places you might want to visit, and try to contact them in advance to schedule your visit.  Many communities are quite busy and visitors who just "show up" aren't always welcome.
