People needing Communal Places

This noticeboard is intended for individuals or families who would like to join an existing group. If you're wanting to place a message or reply to one that's already posted then you must either register or sign in. We restrict noticeboard messages to one per person at any time and your message is part of your profile (click "Your account" then the Edit tab). But before you proceed any further we would urge you to take a look here at communities that are currently looking for new members. Don't fool yourself into thinking that those places will be endlessly checking out People needing Communal Places and are, consequently, likely to approach you. Communities rarely do head-hunting and, in fact, they'll probably think far more highly of you if you take the initiative and make a direct approach to them. You should also be aware that there are scarcely any communities where people can live without making any financial input. Offers of work in exchange for a money-free life will most likely be ignored - most members of communities work their butts off for the place where they live AND pay to live there as well!

Couple with baby ISO dwelling!

Hi there, We are a couple in our late 30s with a toddler. We would love to hear from any communities with space for our little family. (Rent not buy.) We are looking to move in Spring 2017. We are a PhD student and an artist. We work flexibly and share childcare between us so we can also give time to the community in terms of cleaning, gardening, cooking, maintenance etc and we bring various skills such as PR, marketing, journalism, teaching and artistic creativity. We have experience of living in an intentional community and many years experience of living in shared housing. We are mature, responsible, trustworthy and friendly. We are two vegetarians and one vegan and we try to bring a sustainable, ecological approach to life. Ideally we would like to live 2 hours minimum by train to London and possibly around Bristol or Bath as the majority of our family are in Cornwall. Thanks for reading and please get in touch if you have space and think we might be a good match for your community.

a place with purpose, and meaning

Mature man, skillful and reasonably fit, caring and trustworthy, contemplating next step and looking where to live. A UK environmentalist, with community experience and understanding, I would like a medium to long term place to share and call home. Now, will consider anywhere, whatever genuine offer, and respond, please ask the ??s you need answering. Because of the way things are generally in England I spend a lot of time elsewhere ~ can you offer something that may help bring change to this scenario? My needs are straightforward, but not acute, and I always contribute time, effort and payment. Peace and Best to you in 2017 ~ especially all Diggers and Dreamers

accommodation wanted

Hi all, we are early 50's vegan couple with 2 dogs who will be available to rent or work for rent on a mutually suitable Project.We are financially stable so can support ourselves but would love to learn more about off grid sustainable living that is environmentally as well as ethically noble. We would like to live amongst people & animals where all can trust & benefit. Ideally we would have a private house/yurt/lodge or cabin which we can either pay rent for or work to cover cost of. Love the idea of communal life & believe it works best when relationships have grown. We are both physically fit, neither of us are afraid of graft. Our skills are in general building work, ground maintenance, insulation, office skills, proof reading. Any challenge is worth consideration if the cause is good. We enjoy music, can knock a tune out ok when the wind blows in the right way. We have travelled extensively and lived abroad. We feel we do not belong in mainstream society, so are seeking alternatives. We will be ready from November 2016. Looking forward to hearing from anyone who may have idea's to discuss. Regards colin P L U

Couple Seeking Place In Co-operative

We are a couple seeking a place in a co-operative. We are 53/60 years old with no children, but we do come with an extra large soppy dog & 2 cats. Our strengths are fruit growing, poultry keeping, jam/jelly & chutney making. We are meat eaters but do not have a problem with people who choose to be vegetarian or vegan. We tend to follow the humanist principles but have no problem again with people follow a religion. Our interests include model trains, buying & selling at car boot sales, aviculture, & tropical fish keeping. Jane (the female side of the couple) enjoys knitting & selling knitted items, planning theme gardens (Japanese/beach etc) also growing plants to sell from cuttings or seed. Clive enjoys do digging etc (manual labour)not afraid to get hands dirty. We have approx. £50,000 to invest upon selling our smallholding in France (properties are slow to sell here so we do not expect this will happen overnight) to invest the right co-operative. We like the idea of a co-operative that provides there own meat etc. Thank you for reading this Jane & Clive. PS we both enjoy course & sea fishing.
