Like maybe every other intentional community in the history of the universe, we 
struggle with participation. That is, some folks hardly participate at all in 
community work or social activities and we don’t have a good way of bringing 
them back into the fold.

I would love to learn about how other communities structure their work 
participation expectations/requirements and how they lovingly encourage 

(From my limited learning about this, it seems that Pioneer Valley Cohousing 
handles their work system very well. I’d like to learn about other communities 
that have a successful work participation system.)
