HI all,

I am a part of the next generation of people taking over an existing intentional community in south central Washington.

Thought I'd put it out there in this forum that we are looking for people who want to try out living in intentional community, and are serious about pro-actively pursuing a wholesome life together with us and with our land. That means working together to build a base of self-reliance that supports the community. We have a pretty diversified farm-stead already, with a diversity of animals and polycultures. But there is still a lot of room for visioning and implementing broad-acre permaculture. There is so much potential! and a lot of land to work with. It is an inspiring time to be in this community. as we transition from the generation of the founders to the next generation of

One of the "next-gen" members wrote an article for communities magazine about the transition over the last few years, and where we are at today. Crossing Over the Threshold.

We are a relatively small community at this point, with 5 core members living onsite, and another 4-5 who are in and out of community throughout the year. AS well as many connections in the Portland OR Area, and Olympia Washington.

Our practice is to host potential new members for 1-3 months, given them time to feel out the community, from there we can converse about long term involvement. If anyone out there is interest, feel free to send me a private message, or contact us thought our website.
