Hi!

My partner and I purchased a piece of land that we would like to develop into a sustainable homestead and a part of a community. We are in a process of paying it off and are looking for partners. We are hoping that there are others out there with common values that could connect with us. Here's a little bit about the land and us and you can see pictures and more info in this blog entry:

https://wildcooperative.wordpress.com/2016/02/15/in-search-of-community/

We are a community cultivating cooperative and facilitating relationship with nature and each other and share the knowledge of our living experiences. We are concentrating on changing our life’s perspective from human centric to bio centric where all life, in any form is part of our family and relatives. We purchased about 16 acres of raw land in late 2014 in the North Fork Valley, the organically creative hub of western slope Colorado and are developing it now. Our main focus after creating a shelter is healthy soil building, as well as regenerating and stewarding environmentally damaged areas. Our goal is to create a natural, earth-friendly ecosystem that energizes people on all levels and allows for personal and group endeavors, as well as shares and returns the surplus of energy and knowledge.

Please, let us know at wildcooperative@hotmail.com if you're interested in partnering up and creating a community. Thank you!

Ewelina and Stanley

Welcome to permies!

Have you met Adam Klaus in person? He occasionally pops into the forum these days. Thekla is also in your neck of the woods. I hope you will start a project thread to make notes here of your progress as well as on your blog.

Hi! Check out our blog (https://wildcooperative.wordpress.com) which was recently updated with pictures of all the progress. We are welcoming 2-3 diverse families to become a part of our egalitarian community to share knowledge, skills, love and creativity. There are at least three unrestricted building sites perfect for small natural passive solar energy designed homes. There are no building codes and we have very low property taxes in our county. We have strong water rights and two creeks on the property. We are surrounded by untouched wilderness area and are in a clean and protected watershed. We have mild seasons, great sun (250 sunny days) and soil for growing. The North Fork Valley has a regeneratively focused community with many local permaculture and biodynamic courses being offered. The many craftsmen, artists, performers and activists provide vast possibilities of rich cultured social life for kids and adults. Visitors and prospective members are welcome to visit. We are open to visitors but we ask them to consider our community and personal space and call ahead before coming. Contact us at wildcooperative@hotmail.com or nine seven O nine two one five 3 five 1.
