“Community is the inescapable context in which everything human has taken place. The all important web of meaning we spin around each other.” Christopher Ryan
Wise Acres Cooperative Association, established in 1990, is a thriving multi-generational community in the rural waterfront town of Indianola, Washington. The original 9 home sites are individually owned and members share ~20 acres of forested greenbelt, a common house, gardens, orchards, well and roads collectively. Over the years Persephone Farm and various new friends and families have moved to adjoining lands, expanding our Community with their gifts and efforts.
An “intentional community” is where people come together with the intention and commitment to create Community. Wiseacres has chosen the path of consensus and its original intention of sharing resources, raising children together and nurturing the land made all the sense in the world and it still holds true.
