"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."
