Considering starting an intentional community? You’ll want to hear from these folks first.

You’ll discover the wisdom these elder communities in our network have to offer during presentations and panel discussion followed by Q&A.

Presenting Communities

LA Ecovillage

The Los Angeles Eco-Village

Presented by Lois Arkin, co-founder

Founded in 1993, the Los Angeles Eco-Village (LAEV) is a 40-50 member intentional community that lives within three multi-family buildings in a two block area in the East Hollywood and Koreatown neighborhoods. The LAEV IC demonstrates higher quality urban living at lower environmental impacts. They strive to inspire others to make more rapid and deeper changes in their living patterns.


Heathcote Community

Heathcote Community

Presented by Karen Stupski, longterm member

Founded in 1965, the Heathcote Community is an eight member intentional community located about 30 miles north of Baltimore, Maryland. Heathcote is a school, intentional community, and permaculture farm. Their mission is to learn, practice, and share tools and skills to create loving, just, and sustainable communities.


Ganas Community

Ganas Community

Presented by Michael Jonhson, longterm member

A small group who came to call themselves the “core group” founded Ganas on Staten Island, NY. They came together in 1980 with the shared intention to set up a living situation in which they were both the “mice” and the “lab coats” for 20 years. The core group explored why they and others have so much difficulty talking honestly with each other. It was not their purpose to become an intentional community. That evolved around them. They, along with some others, have managed and sustained it until now.


Liberty Village

Liberty Village

Presented by Martie Weatherly, founder

Founded in 1998, Liberty Village is a 20 (and growing) member intentional community located just outside of Frederick, Maryland. Liberty Village is committed to the creation and maintenance of a supportive, enriching, and purposeful community that fosters connection amongst themselves, others, and the Earth through simplicity, cooperation, and community service.
