Winding Rivers Cooperative Community
Why Intentional Community?
Support a lifestyle of elegant simplicity and low-impact practices
Seek a regenerative relationship with our surroundings
Strive to reduce consumption of material goods and avoid exposure to perceived or created needs (ie. marketing and advertising)
Reduce our individual ecological footprint and encourage a community ethic of resource sharing
Nurture personal growth, self-sufficiency, interpersonal understanding, and mutual trust as the foundation to a deeply connected human community
Follow fair, participatory, and effective forms of self-governance using a model of modified consensus.
Support diverse households in creating a joyful and loving environment
Promote social justice by fighting to eliminate oppression
We will keep costs low to reduce financial stress, emphasize reuse and self-empowerment, and shift time spent from wage earning toward community and personal development.
We will take differences in incomes into account in the ways we share costs while building equity for all and bolstering collective ownership.
