People forming a Group

This noticeboard is intended for individuals, small handfuls of individuals or families that would like to find others to get something going. People are likely to be at a very early stage and so not big enough or thought-through enough to go into our Forming Groups section. We would always urge people to consider whether they really want to "reinvent the wheel" all over again. Existing communities are often looking for new members (take a look here) and there are usually several forming groups who've already got some way down the line here.
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). We reserve the right to move the message to another category if it seems more appropriate.

Looking for other Walkaways, especially those technically-minded.

I am spending winter in Zagreb, Croatia, helping to set a squatted building off-grid. I am also starting a series of technical workshops, to spread knowledge and to gain enough money to build electric bikes and trailers for me and my partner. In spring we plan to hit the road and start travelling from community to community, providing technical support education and healing (my partner is into spiritual and magic department). So, I am looking for kindred minds, happy to travel slowly, study and teach "appropriate technology" and help people build life support systems to survive climate change. Also, we'll be happy to meet communities that may wish to host us for a month or so, in exchange for our help. Why "walkaway"? See https://thewalkaways.wordpress.com/2018/12/02/walkaway/ for explanation.

New Community for Swansea Central

Hi there. We're a group of people living in a shared house in central Swansea with a decent size garden, couple of greenhouses and workshop (was garage), just half a mile from the beach. The garden (big for a city centre location - about the size of 2-3 allotment plots) is given over to growing fruit & veg. We are interested in people wanting join our household and share a happy co-existence with us. Though in a vibrant and cosmopolitan area with all that city life offers, we're on a quiet street, so it's a place of relaxation and enjoyment with a good community spirit. contact Dan at dan@danzyg.com if you're interested.

Seeking people for intentional community with shared rent in London

Hi, we are two people (possibly three) who are looking to begin an ongoing discussion with others in the London area, who are interested in an urban intentional community house. We would share rental costs; most meals; values of equality, freedom and respect; and some social activism (focused on the issue of homelessness). Swan Community International (SCI) is a developing intentional community in London, England. It is founded on the vision of creating a sustainable, affordable and caring environment for its residents, as well as actively working to help the homeless in greater London. This project is NOT yet established, and we do not have a physical location at this time. We are looking at a development stage of around four months or longer, before a physical community is founded. We would like to have regular conversations with interested individuals, couples or families – to discuss this community vision, and to plan a collective rental in the near future. Our vision is for an urban community that balances city living with urban gardening and sustainable living practices. This will be a collective rental situation, with all members contributing. We are seeking up to ten people, with the potential for eventual expansion. This is first and foremost a community of like-minded individuals, developed around a vision of positive human culture and open spiritual values, in order to offer a rewarding and supportive living environment for its members. The main goal at this stage is a better life for community members, as we share resources and friendship. Basic Structure: Our structure will be based on three broad community models: 1. Cohousing: shared community that is focused on individual privacy and personal freedom, exclusively seeking a better life for its members. 2. Intentional community: closer-knit community with greater shared vision, resource sharing and social inclusion. 3. House of hospitality: intentional community, such as the Catholic Worker, that has a focus on helping the homeless, and those least fortunate in society.
