The list that follows has been gathered together to help you find sources for information on Intentional Communities. Have suggestions? Please e-mail them to us! Please note: except the budding intentional community project I'm working on, I do not plan to use this page as a directory for specific communities -- there are other pages here referenced that do a much better job!
