    Thanks for your great input caverdude!

    … and TUF, yes I agree with you.  But the “energies” on this planet are in flux constantly.  Those external forces can effect behavior and moods of those living in community unintentionally.  Our experience has led us to create ways and means of doing things that take all of this into consideration.  And we certainly believe that the net “energy” of the planet is headed towards one of more sharing, more cooperation, and more community.  And we intend to be part of that shift, or maybe even play a leadership role in it.

    caverdude,

    I can’t say I strongly disagree with your sentiment based on an analysis of society and American culture in it’s current state.  We do operate with contracts for our permanent members.  We take ethics and follow-through on commitment very seriously.  However, we are not, and will not become a “work camp” with a strong command hierarchy   That would work against allowing people to follow their joy and find what most inspires them in terms of their community offering.

    We have faith and confidence that American culture is quickly changing in these times, and much optimism that people can be better then what you describe.  We believe in giving people a chance to grow, and become that, just as you said there is no way to demand work out of people, there is also no way to demand that kind of growth.  We can only lead by example.  With care, and focus, and following the best of what is in our hearts with regard to communing with our fellows.

    Hey TUF! Sorry for the slow response.  I can’t tell exactly what role you are playing with the Taichung Urban Farmers.  But it looks like an amazing project that is probably well ahead of us in terms of self-sustainability.

    No matter what, I would say your experience there makes you a very likely good fit for New Dawn Project!

    beast- we did see your email and, in fact, I was looking at tribe.net today! But I couldn’t find an easy way to see your profile! Perhaps you could copy and paste your profile into an email for us? How about Skype? Do you use it? You can contact me at username: rayzer42

    beast: that is a great question.  One that we would probably like to do just a little bit of get-to-know-you first to answer completely.

    So, please feel free to contact us directly: https://newdawnnm.info/contact-us.html

    Hope to hear from you!

    wirerat123,

    Well said.  I think your assessment is pretty much completely accurate, including the assumption that we are definitely not the “party animal” (A camp) types, nor are we looking for people that are.  Thanks for helping to explain!

    Consider The New Dawn Project as a good place to start.  Good people.  Good ideas.  Fun.  Spiritual fulfillment.  And we are not “actually” off-grid… we have all the modern amenities (for now).  But we are moving as quickly as we can for complete self-reliability within the community.

    I am sorry if the information we have shared does not answer all of your questions.  Feel free to contact us any time and ask anything you want to know.  There is far more structure and plan then what may appear and we are glad to share whatever we feel is appropriate with anyone who has an honest interest.

    today: 9 adults, 3 children

    tomorrow: we shall see…

    some here and more on the way are just “guest” status while we see if it is a good permanent fit.

    we welcome others to do the same.  bring a tent but be assured you will have all modern conveniences at your disposal.
