Below is a 5 part series on intentional communities each about 15 minutes long.
“What?! I’m not a hippy!” you say! Hang on there!
Intentional communities come in all types and forms. Reading SCP – duh… :-D You are part of an online preparedness community that was intentionally created to support the people who come here – a virtual intentional community! These communities outlined in this series of videos are all off-grid and working at a sustainable lifestyle and all have sustainable businesses to support themselves. Their preparedness focus is primarily food oriented and supportive behavior of its members. There are preparedness communities and retreats – we’ve seen the extremes on Doomsday Preppers.
And on the mainstream side, many of the retirement communities are intentional communities. But from what I have seen, these tend to be for the golf cart segment of our aging population.
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be able to go in together with other older folks, buy some land, build your own home, live inexpensively and be safe with people all on the same wavelength? A little extra income on top of social security? It could be done!
