shiningchild: Intro from an outsider

Hello...I am not actually living in a community, but am fascinated by them and recently visited Twin Oaks in Virginia. I am also corresponding with a group of people who are interested in starting one. I hope no one minds if I join and occasionally post to this group? :)

This community is super quiet, but I'll post anyways!

I live in an intentional community in Montréal, Québec, an urban co-op (though not a legal co-op). We live on the second floor of a warehouse and share certain food costs (bulk grains, flour, etc). We dumpster, make our own soy/rice/oat milk, have weekly consensus meetings, share chores and take turns making vegan dinner/doing dishes.

It's the best place I've lived so far.

I started buildcommunity for people interested in building, interested in talking about, who have lived in, or who currently live in an egalitarian community. I'm specifically referring to income sharing urban co-operatives, income sharing rural communes, and the like. Hopefully the community will be of use!

Apologies for crossposting (not that that makes it any better).

If you based labour credits on an hour's work, would you just make sure that people rotated the unwanted work? What if two people were particularly skilled at something, and thus needed to do them, but one was easier and more enjoyable (these maybe hard/impossible to measure save the people's own opinions)? Would you still alot them equal labour credit?

Cross-posted to mutual_aid. Sorry if you got hit twice.

Hello all. My name is Ken, and I've created this list for people living in intentional communities. I live in a community in Vermont which I helped found, Meadowdance, and have been here now for over five years. We are still in the founding stage I would say, but with quite a bit of history and experience already.

I'm interested in connecting with other people living in community, to both share experiences and lend advice to each other. I'm hoping there are others out there in LJ land who live in community and wish to share.
