Introduction to Community

Think not what you can do to help the planet. Think what we can do.


Less energy is used when things are shared. This remains true for anything - transportation, food, food preparation, mental energy, etc. Being a part of a community undoubtedly proves beneficial for the individual, the community and the environment.


Community Ecology - Why community is better ecologically speaking.

Community Living - Things you can do to create or improve a community.

Empowering the Individual - Maintain your voice and individuality, even within a community.

Local Economy - Create a tax free exchange of goods and services.

Ecological Footprint - Your footprint and its global impact.
