Getting out of your element: On community involvement

On my walk down to the beach that I currently use as my temporary office (yes, I am lucky, I tell myself this every day!), I saw some pleasant looking travelers. We stopped and exchanged greetings; it turns out they were looking for the community I'm currently living at. What a coincidence! In past situations where strangers are spontaneously looking to visit where I'm currently living, my initial response has been somewhat fear-based: How long are they intending to stay? Will they contribute or is this just a "green" vacation? Are they nice, respectful people?

Restorative Design

 

Last week, I had a wonderful conversation with a lovely lady named Fiona. She is actively working to organize an ecovillage on 125 acres in Sandy just 40 minutes from her current home in Portland, Oregon, USA. We talked for hours discussing the merits of sustainable living, travel, consumption and community.
