Starting and Sustaining Intentional Communities

This event has passed.

Do you dream of establishing a land-based intentional community or education center? This course is designed to help you actualize that dream. Presentations and detailed hand-outs will cover topics such as visioning; how to find land and finance a purchase; the various legal forms available for holding land (limited liability company, corporation, land trust, etc.); organizing as a for-profit or a nonprofit; group decision-making process (meetings, agreements, facilitation, agenda management, conflict resolution); financial organization of your community; legal and insurance issues and costs; dealing with zoning and regulations; and long-term planning. We will also tour OAEC’s community and educational center, including our gardens, permaculture projects, natural buildings, and the community’s kitchen and food system. See web site for registration details.
