Prospect Permaculture Community

Forming Community

We are a group of like minded people who are setting up an intentional community based on permaculture principles.
The community will be essentially land based with the aim of producing most of our own food and energy. We will earn our income from a wide variety of activities - as many as possible will take place on-site.
Accommodation will be based on co-housing with dwellings that are largely self contained but sharing many facilities.

Gaunts House Community

The community at Gaunts House is informal and more inevitable rather than intentional. We are dedicated to profound learning and to providing a peaceful, inspiring environment for others.

Our structure includes guests, trustees, wwoofers & volunteers and employed staff. Our purpose is to seek, find and follow our individually right path providing care and support for others. Meditation is encouraged, both individually and collectively; as is spending time in the beautiful grounds and countryside, communing with nature.

"Lord grant that I may seek to comfort than to be comforted; to understand than to be understood; to love than to be loved; for it is by forgetting self that one finds; it is by dying that one awakens to eternal life. Amen" (St Francis of Assisi)

Plotgate Venture

Forming Community

A sustainable affordable self/build rural co-housing project is looking for new members. The idea is to provide affordable land for self-build eco-friendly houses and work units with minimal impact on the environment. There will be a low-impact communal building with shared facilities and all services will be provided off-grid, both in individual dwellings and communally, using renewable energy devices. The project is not envisaged as a commune, but as a community of independent households sharing access to communal building and agricultural land.
What we have:

Keveral Farm Community

Keveral Farm has been a community since 1973.
We live in a farmhouse, a barn conversion, an extended static caravan, and 3 other static caravans. These, together with our farm buildings, are owned and managed by our housing co-op, One Community.

Members should attend monthly community meetings, and do 2 hours voluntary work per week maintaining and improving the house, buildings and land.
