creating a utopian community? what are the steps and can we learn from others? are but some of the answers we would need. If that is a direction you would like to explore. I have lived in large student co-ops, some worked and other did not work for me! I worked in a food co-op for 8 years, best work I've done. Hard work, but very satisfying. Here is an interesting web-site you might think worth will! http://www.appropedia.org/Utopia If I can help, I would answer any questions. I do like to work with others on co-operative ventures, though it's not always easy! AXE!
