About the Website
Intentional communities, for many people
, are the foundational building block for sustainable
living. You take a bunch of like-minded people, put them on a big plot of land
, divide it up, and pool their resources to establish a collective that protects, nourishes, and sustains itself.
It's bringing your grocery store to your backyard.
It's lowering your dependency on fossil fuels.
It's building relationships with people so that when times get tough, you're not alone, and someone's always looking out for you.
Ic.org is an organization dedicated to the education, support, and promotion of intentional communities all across North America. Their online
resources are user-friendly, and make it easy to find a community
that aligns with your values, no matter where you are.
Their continued work in this field has given people the education they need to make informed decisions about this kind of lifestyle, and produced valuable information sets to make collaborating with communities easier than ever.
You can use their Classifieds section
to find intentional communities in your area, and filter the results
by location, keywords, and types of ads to narrow things down.
In addition to their handy classifieds section, FIC also has a community blog, newsletter, and a calendar of events - you can check out all of that and stay in the loop here
If you've been toying with the idea od diving into intentional community
living, but want to get a feel for it first, The Fellowship for Intentional Communities is a fantastic resource.
