Hello, I am looking for people to start an intentional community somewhere in the United States where i reside. I am currently in Southeast Michigan and am partial to the Great Lakes Region for the fresh water.
I am an introvert and it is hard for me to talk to people especially about starting an intentional community because a lot of people think that I'm crazy when I talk about this stuff. Right now it is just myself, and my girlfriend. Possibly my father and my step-mother but they may do thier own project.
We are getting our finances in order and looking at land in various parts of the United States, but have not settled on anything yet. We plan to move on to the land slowly while keeping jobs in the city and then in 5 to 10 years live on the land permanently.
Right now looking for people with a wide range of skills, auto mechanics, carpentry, animal husbandry, firearms, legal, and community building experts counsilers, etc.
Living in the eco-village, there would be no village spiritual system, and no political bias. Members would be free to practice whatever makes them happy as long as they do not demand that others follow their beliefs.
There would be co-op style businesses as the backbone of our economy, but if members have other ventures (investments, online business, etc) that is fine as well.
There will be shared commodities such as a community garden, community vehicles, a general store for community members and outsiders. There would also be private property such as housing and sexual partners.
Financial system will be based on a barter system, and a precious metals based system, NO PAPER FIAT CURRENCY!!! Not to sound too pushy.
