Hi! Some friends and I are traveling West from Indiana, besides slab city, what are some other camps, farms, or communes out there? We should be hitting most of the states west of Indiana. Thanks!
 
We sell all kinds of other stuff in our Etsy store!

Do some research online. There are sites dedicated to finding communes.
Yeah, http://ic.org is a great resource. They at least used to put out a textbook sized directory I used to flip through for hours...

We put together a list of collectives all around the world too: http://slingshot.tao.ca/contacts/#cy-us

and I started a thread on here about Black Bear Ranch, if you all happen to visit there it would be cool to know what you all think...

If you would like to come to an intentional community that farms and strives to get by with less money, you can come to a community on a piece of land in Tennessee called Shut Up N Grow It or SUNGI with 21.5 acres of farmland and forest. It is at 8967 Galen Road, Lafayette, TN 37083. Anyone is welcome to come with no notice or permission necessary. We ask $10 a week and help out on the farm for 20 hours a week doing whatever you feel is needed or think you can contribute. It is an off-grid egalitarian community where community decisions are made in councils. We seek to live an ecologically sustainable way of life and one that is more natural in many other ways. Many travelers also come here. We have a drinking water source, gardens, farm animals, outdoor kitchen, outhouse, shelters, camping places, library, etc. Private message me if you have any questions or in the comments. Thank you. https://www.facebook.com/groups/388751901308125/

Go on... :)

Who owns the property? How are decisions made? Your FB page said good people left because bad people came, but that you have a good group now. How are you running things differently to attempt to prevent that from happening again?

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
