From the Intentional Communities web site
Intentional Community is an inclusive term for ecovillages, cohousing, residential land trusts, communes, student co-ops, urban housing cooperatives and other related projects and dreams... This Web site serves the growing communities movement. We provide important information and access to crucial resources for seekers of community, existing and forming communities, and other friends of community.
What is intentional community, you ask? First you may want to see What's True About Intentional Communities: Dispelling the Myths. Then perhaps a bit of historical context with Geoph Kozeny's, Intentional Communities: Lifestyles Based on Ideals. Followed finally with Who We Are: An Exploration of What "Intentional Community" Means, by Dan Questenberry. Further questions? Contact the FIC at firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can order the Communities Directory or subscribe to the Communities magazine via our online ordering forms. We don't recommend these items lightly - we consider them to be the premier source of information on intentional communities.
