The Los Angeles Eco-Village grew out of the L.A. Uprisings of 1992. In the Korean language, SAIGU means the date of the Uprisings or Riots which began on April 29 that year as a result of the Rodney King verdict which acquitted the LAPD officers of their brutal beating of King. There is an enormous amount of information, opinions, analysis about the verdict, the uprisings, the deaths and destruction that emerged from SAIGU, the L.A. Riots. For the Los Angeles Eco-Village, it was the determining factor to retrofit our blighted, crime, gang and drug infested neighborhood into a healthier more sustainable community. Go here to read my (Lois Arkin’s) personal account of those events 25 years ago.

The Communities Conference is held Labor Day weekend, Sept 2 – 5, at Twin Oaks Community in Louisa County, Central Virginia. The event hosts between 150 and 200 participants, including people who are members of, interested in, and new to intentional communities and other kinds of cooperative living and working.
The focus of the event is on intentional communities, although workshops sometimes cover a broader array of topics in cooperative and alternative lifestyles, economics, and organizing. If the workshop is not specific to intentional communities the presenter will address the topic in relation to intentional communities.
The conference site is rustic and mostly outdoors.
