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!

actively seeking place, purpose, and meaning

Mature man, skilful, independent, caring, genuine and trustworthy. A UK environmentalist and pacifist, with long term community experience, qualifications and understanding. I seek a place to share, contribute, call home and be actively part of ~ I prefer to be among people, as well as enjoying my own space, peace and quiet. Most ideally, a place I can be creative and have space n time to paint, draw and express ideas visually through art. Meaningfully, I love music, art, family, communication and nature. Oh, and cycling. Good skill in many areas especially garden, kitchen and nature, am willing to consider any location, whatever genuine offer, and respond, please ask the ??s you need answering. My needs are straightforward, not acute, and I always contribute time, effort, understanding and payment. Peace and Best to you ~ especially Diggers and Dreamers

We are looking for ways to find a house suitable for community

Dear Folks, We are looking for a house to rent, where we can live as a small community of around 4 - 8 people. We are just beginning to look around and would like to ask if anyone knows or hears of a place that could be suitable for us, or knows of ways to find a house that could support a community intention. We would prefer a house with character that is not too modern, with a private landlord so that we can live more organically within the house and ideally near to Southampton in the UK with some surrounding countryside. We are also looking for more people who want to live as community, who are ready to embrace the challenge, possibilities of growth and joy that this may offer and with a willingness to develop and explore the necessary skills, values and intentions that would create a healthy container for this flourish. Please feel free to share this with anyone who you feel would be interested and can help us find a house or may even have a house that could be suitable and please we would love to know any other thoughts and feelings. With Good Intentions Richard & Gabriel

Looking to work off land?

I am wandering if there is anyone on here who has a lot of land and looking to relieve themselves of a couple of acres if I work for you for land In exchange. Ever since I learnt about permaculture I've wanted to start up myself. I stayed in Lammas for 3 months and loved it and would really love to develop the science of permaculture more. I have heard of people working land off and attaining it that way. Even people working and earning a small amount of money on top of that. I hope to hear from you or anyone you know that you can point me too. Thank you very much Mav

Young female couple looking for to work hard!

Vegan/vegetarian female couple looking to change their lives. We are mid twenties, very interested in sustainability and alternative therapies especially meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, etc. We have 2 dogs (small to medium sized, smooth coated, very clean and also vegetarian) and anywhere we went would have to accept these. Ideally looking for a set up that includes working within the community in return for bed and board, I am a project manager with a training background so would love to get involved with a group that perhaps does retreats, workshops or similar and my wife has experience of working with animals and is a dab hand at all craft/artistic pursuits including clothes making, photography and needlepoint, as well as us both taking part in community tasks such as growing food, cooking, cleaning, etc. We are atheist but have no problems with the group having a core belief. We are also happy with small sized accommodation, just a double room or even better - an area where we can have a yurt/tipi. Happy to relocate anywhere for the right community.

Single female needing a communal living space in South West Scotland

Hi I'm looking for a communal living space in South West Scotland. At present I live in Hebden Bridge in West Yorkshire and work as a body psychotherapist and workshop facilitator on courses in Embodied Relational Therapy and Wild Therapy, which take place in various regions around the UK. I have been renting privately and living alone for the past 5 years and I would now like to be part of a community with shared ideas and ethical values. I know SW Scotland very well and my heart lives there even though I don't physically just yet! My plan is to stop working with my one to one therapy clients, leaving my work as a facilitator as my main focus. This would leave me available for communal work during most week days.
