Our Intention

Most of us have come of age in a society that emphasizes competition, materialism and self-enhancement. We feel that this has encouraged isolation and alienation. We see cooperation and a spirit of mutual support as highly desirable alternatives.

We try to recognize and cherish the different skills and insights of each individual. We are committed to helping and encouraging one another.

We believe that successful community requires an intentional commitment. We have all made a long term commitment to this place and one another. We get together frequently in both formal and informal gatherings.

We have concerns about the health of the environment and social chaos. Each of us tries to reach out from our relative security to do what we can.

We do not claim to have the solutions to the world’s problems or even our own. We believe we are taking steps in the right direction, and know that good things are happening here.
