Twin Oaks Communities Conference

Friday, August 29, 2014 to Monday, September 1, 2014

"Twin Oaks Community is an intentional community of 100 people on 450 acres in rural central Virginia. Founded in 1967, the community values cooperation, non-violence, and egalitarianism.  The community holds land, labor, money, and other resources in common and practices a democratic form of self-governance called the Planner-Manager system.    Tours will be available during the conference.

The conference is sponsored by two different inter-community organizations. The Fellowship for Intentional Community (FIC) provides publications, referrals, support services, and sharing opportunities for a wide range of intentional communities, cohousing groups, ecovillages, community networks, support organizations, and people seeking a home in community. The Federation of EgalitarianCommunities (FEC) is a network of communities that hold their land, labor, and other resources in common and are committed to equality, participatory government,ecology, and non-violence."
