@ Groundswell Institute, an emerging ecovillage and retreat center
Join other community explorers in the splendor of nature for a weekend of skill-building, networking, and celebration that promises to inspire and educate. Whether you are brand spanking new to intentional communities or have been living in them for years, the West Coast Communities Conference will provide plentiful opportunities for all to grow their own skills and knowledge. Inspired by the Communities Conference that takes place at Twin Oaks in Virginia each year, and organized with sponsorship from the Fellowship for Intentional Communities (FIC) and Federation of Egalitarian Communities (FEC), this event promises to be a brilliant convergence of those who see the vital role community has to play in the trying times we live in. Anyone with interest or experience in worker cooperatives, rural communes, artist collectives, or any other kind of communal enterprise is invited to participate.
We will be limiting attendance in order to minimize impact on our land. Please register to ensure your spot. Registration fees are $100 for tenting and $150 for cabins, which includes access to all programs and three hot meals a day. In addition, there are day passes for those who don’t wish to stay overnight. There are plentiful scholarship and work trade options available – we do not want economic status to be a barrier to attending this event. E-mail us here if you would like to arrange a scholarship or work trade.
