As we chart the uncertain waters of modern times, life in community serves as both a lifeboat, providing shelter from the storm, and as a flagship, leading the way to a more sustainable future.
If you seek a life with direction, with greater meaning, holding true to your ideals, follow the course of community. In community there is strength, gaining the leverage necessary to achieve your full potential.
Take the next step. This Memorial Day Weekend, May 29-31, join with others who share your vision, and leave uplifted, with the energy to pursue your real life goals.
In community we depend on each other, and it is clear that each one of us has value and something to give, contributions to the whole, made visible through our work.
Find your passion:
- Green Building
- Green Business
- Organic Food Production
- Alternative Education
- Environmental Activism
- Peace and Justice Activism
- Music and the Arts
- and more
There is room for everyone in community, and you will have the opportunity to see how this can be expressed in a very real way when you are part of our special gathering.
Without question, our Green Building Tour is always one of the most popular aspects of our annual conference. For many years now, The Farm has been undergoing a housing boom, with an average of 4 new homes under construction every year. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to see multiple examples of many types of green construction, including:
- 3 Insulated Concrete Form Homes
- The Massive Recycled Steel Dome
- The Solar School, the largest Passive Solar Building in the State
- Straw Bale, Earth Bag
- Cob, Clay Slip and Cordwood
