it is surprising that there are so few intentional communities in indiana. most of these communities are interested in living sustainable and to some extent sharing resources. it seems like it would be a an ideal life choice socially and financially, the intentioal community movement is not well known, not much talked about and very much misunderstood. the communities of today are for the most part very different from the historical communities. there still are religiously oriented groups and a few "hippie" type communes, but they really are in the minority. the variety of communities is almost limitless. anyone who is interested in communities can investigate http://www.ic.org/ for more information. it's the best intentional community site, with community listings, information related to community, community events, and other community related subjects.
