This is an open invitation to The Garden intentional community for our annual spring gathering in April for the 10th anniversary of this community at 8967 Galen Road, Lafayette, Tennessee. This event is free of charge. There will be workshops about sustainable living, nature hikes, work projects doing gardening, building, cooking, and other projects, and opportunities to help at this land and other places on a similar mission. Anyone is welcome to put on a workshop themselves, work on their own ideas for projects for the community, and perform music or any other performing art or create other forms of art. This intentional community was created with rainbow gathering style cooperation and freedom in mind as well as creating a sustainable alternative to living in mainstream society, and many alternative nomadic travelers come here throughout the year. It was also called Shut Up and Grow It. There is space for camping, vans, buses, as well as space in communal shelters on the land. Advance notice is not needed to come here. Just show up. We welcome travelers, gardeners, volunteers, people who like the outdoors, and other peaceful people interested in sustainable living and sharing land communally to gather and cooperate together at this event and throughout the year.

Yes there is a spring gathering every year. Everyone is also welcome any time throughout the year. Interviewing sounds cool. A lot of travelers stop by here. We also have a project with a couple buses traveling to other communities, farms, places that need disaster relief, activist camps, rainbow gatherings, and other places like that called The People's Project. https://m.facebook.com/peoplesproject501c3/

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    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
    $50.00 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
    $50.00 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
    $50.00 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.
