    Hmm, I do see this and have read that this will be part of our future, but right now?? As you say, so much of our social interaction revolves round food. A couple in our district went without food for 60 days. I think they drank water. They also mentioned the social interaction round food which they missed. The man thrived on the discipline, but Im afraid his wifes body seemed to eat itself and she aged terribly. Didn't endear anyone else to the practice. As you say, it would be handy though, and very freeing.

    I forgot this thread existed. I was going to start one on Ecovillages but Intentional Communities are basically the same thing.

    So here's a vid on an Ecovillage in Cloughjordan, Ireland:




    And one on Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage: an introduction

    Wow, I would LOVE to become part of an Intentional Community. Living WITH nature and growing spiritually with like minded individuals. Resonates to the core!
    What am I looking for? The cream of the crop, the bees knees... of life!

    GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR THE POOR OR PEOPLE WANTING TO START A COMMUNITY OR TOWN

    Ghost towns are a great place of like minded people to take over to form their own communities. In the 1960's a town called NIMBIN NSW went bust due to government regulations in the dairy industry. Shops closed, houses sold for nothing, farms went bankrupted. The hippie children soon discovered it and took over. They opened the hamburger places and turned them into vegetarian cafes, shops turned into emporium's from India, the barkery was turned into homebaked wholemeal breads etc. People from all over went there to join in this alternative culture. Now it is a thriving town where people from all over the world come to visit.

    Some of the towns in the following article lend themselves to this sort of takeover by alternative people who want to escape the cities and form communities. Welch, West Virginia is one of those towns. Absolutely beautiful. I have posted this article as to give inspiration to people who want to escape the city and venture into the country to form communities in the USA.


    In 1910 72% of Americans lived in rural areas

    Vast swathes of the U.S. countryside are emptying and communities becoming ghost towns as rural America now only accounts for just 16 per cent of the population.

    The 2010 census results suggest that by 2050 many of these areas could shrink to virtually nothing as businesses collapse and schools close.

    This dramatic population implosion is the culmination of a century of migration to cities, as in 1910 the share of rural America was at 72 per cent.

    In 1950 the countryside remained home to a majority of Americans, amid post-World War II economic expansion and the baby boom.

    However, once busy areas have been abandoned, in South Dakota for example, the town of Scenic is up for sale for $799,000 as today just eight people live there.

    Among the struggling rural areas are vast stretches of West Virginia in Appalachia. Several of the state's counties over the past decade have lost large chunks of their population following the collapse of logging and coal-mining industries.

    I searched intentional community forum on Google, and then found this thread.
    Though it was posted long time ago, I was interested in it.
    So I post a new thread of our intentional community - New Oasis for Life, hope those people who are interested will contact me.
    I was a resident of the largest ecovillage project in China - New Oasis for Life.
