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 with integrity, skilful, cooperative, independent, caring, genuine and trustworthy. A UK environmentalist and pacifist, with long term community experience, involvement, qualifications and understanding. I seek a place to share, contribute, work in and for, 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 music, d-i-y, 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 give time, effort, understanding and payment. Peace and Best to you ~ especially Diggers and Dreamers

Looking for community

Hello, my name is Faye. I am a 32-year-old Doula from Germany and mother of a beautiful little girl of 17months. We are currently looking for a community in need of new members or people who'd like to form a small community of like-minded people together with us. We are nowadays placed in Cornwall and would prefer to stay in the area, but we would also be willing to move if necessary. In the past year, we lived in a big house in the countryside with stunning garden and lovely nature all around but we found it too big, too much work for a single mum and baby and too lonely. During the pregnancy, I have lived in a community in Germany but had to move on, as that community got dispersed. Ever since I have felt that longing for a life in community again, but our means for travelling and looking at all possible places around the world are slightly limited and also travelling to and fro with a little one is not always that easy. So here we are, looking for a great place with lovely people and sustainable lifestyle. We are dreaming of a group of genuine people with open hearts and minds and with the will to help each other out. I know it needs integrity and honesty to form a strong community and I am happy to put my heart in it. We are looking forward to hear from you. Best wishes Faye and Maylea

☯ Looking for a place to set up my tent life ☯

Hola amigos! I'm a 21 year old british dude looking for a place to put my tent, preferably in the UK but I may be able to travel to you if you're in another country. I've been a part of communities in Australia, Tasmania and France, even staying at a Buddhist monastery for a week in england. Every commune I've been a part of has been mostly people around 20-30 years old living with spiritual or anarchistic values but I don't mind what your community entails, I'm just looking for friends and peace. I don't have any money to offer but I've got experience in mandarin and watermelon farming, and moving heavy loads up to 22kg. I clean up after myself and have experience bartending. I also do fire twirling so I can do a show for you if you want but it's all improvised. I don't have any needs other than a place to put my tent, but of course I'd rather be part of a community that works as a whole and feeds and works for eachother! If you're 420 friendly and are semi interested in spirituality or circus/flow arts then *please* give me a call because I won't judge you. Jonny ☯ :D (

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
