Mission Statement
To build a community that brings a more equitable society, better quality of life, and a harmonious life with nature.

Community Description
We are an intergenerational community, raising families together: committed to connection with each other, environmental sustainability, and living in harmonious relationship with the land. We share governance and work by consensus decision-making. We are queer-affirming, gender-inclusive, multicultural, and multigenerational individuals, couples, and families. We value the spectrums of the human experience and each individual’s diverse abilities. We strive to live out of a place of abundance, working to dismantle the systems of racism and oppression in our society.

We are currently 3 households of varying sizes and we are meeting with several more individuals and families who are interested in joining. Many of us are families with young children looking to live together with other families with young children on an urban farm in or near St. Paul, MN. We range in age from toddler to 70s. We hope to include families with young children as well as individuals and couples. In addition, we want to host exchange students and others doing cultural exchange programs or living in the US temporarily. We want to live with people with diverse skills and interests that complement our own.

We are open to those of any religious, faith, or spiritual practice as well as those with no religious, faith, or spiritual practice. Our members include people with Quaker, Christian, and no religious beliefs.

Group decisions are made using a consensus process to come up with our best decision.

We anticipate buying land and needing to build our community building. We plan to have shared space for cooking, eating, socializing, and working together. We will build with the environment and sustainability in mind. Our dream land would include lots of space to garden and play in as well as space for chickens. We would love to be near woods and a creek for the children to play in, maple trees for making maple syrup, and wildlife. We also plan to be able to take advantage of public transportation and be able to walk or bike to most places.

If there’s something you dream of having and you don’t see it in our plan, maybe you’re the one to add it to our plan.
