This summer of road trips I intend to visit a number of community/cooperative inspirations from years of reading:
The Nearings / Good Life Center
Twin Oaks Intentional Community
Truth or Consequences, NM
But I'm also headed through lots of the midwest and west, so what similarly broadly construed inspirations should I read and see (that aren't Pacific Coastal)?
@mattcropp @leedscath yes, great! http://www.leedscath.wixsite.com/northamericantour for my future reference, lots to read up on here what a trip. (And bonus Spanish locations, woo!)
@loppear @mattcropp and oh so much i never wrote about too. But i stuck to the borders, i never ventured into the middle due to lack of time. i also loved Riot Bayit in Boston, Compersia in DC & Wild Mountain Co-op ME. Truth or Consequences, what a great name! I can make no community-focused mid-west recommendations, but I can recommend reading 'Hinterland' by Phil A. Neel for the flip side. Good luck 🙂
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
