I just wanted to report that the Sunflower Village Initiative isn’t dead. It’s more alive than ever! This fall, five people joined me to form a board of directors: Arianna, Jasmina, Katie, Malcolm, and Daniel. We’ve had three meetings, and we’re currently working on polishing our Mission statement, and our goal is to become an official non-profit sometime in 2011!
As a non-profit, the Sunflower Village Initiative will be aimed at developing intentional communities to become subsidiarity, sustainable, and solidarity based, and helping individuals gain access to these communities. This itself won’t directly become the organization that makes a village with me – but it will probably be the parent organization.
