Groundswell, an emerging ecovillage and retreat center, is proud to
announce a new West Coast Communities Conference. Organized with
sponsorship from the Fellowship for Intentional Communities (FIC) and the
Federation of Egalitarian Communes (FEC), the main goal of this conference
is to provide opportunities for networking and skill building for people
involved with the communities movement.  Those who already have experience
with community will be able to share and increase their skills. while those
who may be new to the movement will learn a wide range of models and
practices that others have used in starting and sustaining successful

We are hoping to have a wide range of community movers and shakers to
present workshops, dialogues, and demonstrations.  Anyone with interest or
experience in worker cooperatives, rural communes, artist collectives, or
any other kind of communal enterprise is invited to participate. We
encourage people to be creative in the matter and manner of these
presentations and ask only that they hold some relation to intentional

In addition, the organizing team is still looking for help with logistics
both before and during the conference. If you are interested in being
involved in that way, please don’t hesitate to be in touch.
