Have you ever dreamed of

living in a land based community/ family/ tribe 

where folks are living simply, co-owning land and sharing power, 

and growing wonderful organic food? 

Have you wished there could be a group of people who were politically aware, egalitarian, tantra and poly friendly, skillful in emotional work and communication skills, motivated and hard working, fun loving and into really creating family together? 

The members of La'akea Community on the Big Island of Hawaii invite you to an intensive, skill building, really fun New Culture camp to help you learn the skills to create more land based, live-in communities in your area.                                       

The members here wanted the same things!  We found each other at Network for New Culture Summer camp, worked together to buy a 23 acre piece of land on the Big Island, and have co-created La'akea Permaculture Community ( successfully since 2004. 

We invite you all to join us for 6 days of special trainings that give a sampling of some of the ways we relate to the land and each other, all led by experienced teachers.

More about La'akea:

We are a committed group of people working together closely as a means to health, relationship vitality, economic stability, personal and spiritual growth. We integrate the social aspects of sustainability into daily life: how to live together with honesty, love and peace, and share power and leadership. 

We do not have one central leader, but instead share the cost of the land and the leadership equally.  We are poly friendly, and over half of us are actively and successfully polyamorous.

We have 10 adult members and more potential members.  We welcome visitors, give tours, and are open to new members.  Especially New Culture folks!
