I'd like to establish a new communal home with people who are keen about living in sustainable community.
HERE is my personal vision for a house
*Move in for AUG 1st *5-6 house members *Generally west-end (Between Bathurst & Keele)
~*~Commitment to sustainable living includes
*Eating mostly organic, mostly local
*Growing food in our front/backyard garden
*Minimizing packaging on products bought; reusing items *Using eco-friendly cleaning products
*Loving and taking care of yourself, your community, the earth!
~*~Commitment to community includes
*Each housemate cooks a vegan/vegetarian meal once weekly
*Being at dinner at least 3 days/week
*Once weekly housemates check-in/meeting
*Commitment to anti-oppression framework
*Commitment to compassionate conscious communication
*Having fun & much more!
I take these points from previous experience living in intentional community, feeling that much of this helps a house community live harmoniously.
None of this is set in stone and a group dicussion is necessary for each point. The focus of this meeting will be for the AUG 1 house with the goal of emmerging with a group of 5-6 individuals who are excited, willing and able to live together for Aug 1st; excited, willing and able to put in the time and effort that will be required to find a suitable place; excited, willing and able to commit to a collectively-decided house agreement.
I have so much more I want to share with and learn from all of you! Please come out if any/most/all of the above speaks to you and PLEASE FORWARD WIDELY to others you think are ready to commit to this (somewhat specific) vision.
