Personally I would always have a plan B and and a escape route before “joining” any alternative communities. Having being burned myself and losing a lot of money personally I’d also suggest having a “iron clad” legal structure with financial protection mechanisms. In other words get everything in writing. Then perhaps one can go into a alternative scenario with a level playing field. I would imagine that Diana Leaf Christian and other community writers have suggested as much and more. Not trying to be relevant or a naysayer but feel it’s my duty to suggest caution and patience when entering any alternative scenarios. Does one really know who one is dealing with? I now try and know my “friends” for 20 years prior to getting involved in any business with them. Personally, I’ve read some of what I’d consider “red flags” to me on several postings and links. I don’t think it’s the Permies responsibility to edit or police everything and that due diligence by the individual is warranted. Having said that best wishes finding your happy place in this world and permaculture.
