A free event for free people.
Bringing a collective vision into reality.
LET'S RECLAIM THE EARTH!
We used to share the earth as all other beings on the planet do. Living together, migrating freely, and blessed in natural abundance. The Earth has been hijacked by humans; littered with no trespassing signs, polluted and exploited for capital. What if we relearned how to share? Collectively funding land to create free food forests, intentional communities, and a network of shared spaces that support each other.
We can create the world we wish to see if we come together, share our collective wisdom and make a plan.
This event's purpose is to gather like-minded individuals with the common values of equality, autonomy, peaceful cooperation, and sustainable Earth stewardship to dream up a world we’d all like to see and take meaningful steps to make it happen.
Let's make a plan to share the land!
Sustainability Workshops, Musical and Circus Performances, and Share the Planet Plan Vision Circles will take place from April 21st to the 30th, but people are encouraged to come as early as the 17th to begin preparing the space for the gathering. Plan to camp during your stay, eat organic produce from our gardens, and use basic off-grid compost toilets and facilities.
This event is free of charge and will operate as a collaborative effort. Experiencing the day-to-day lifestyle within an intentional community will be an integral part of this gathering. Everyone is encouraged to participate in gardening, cooking, cleaning, and all other activities involved with operating as a collective. There will be workshops on soil building, building a compost toilet, seed planting, etc! Anyone is welcome to host a workshop and share their knowledge, or offer an artistic performance! Reach out if you’d like us to put you on the schedule.
This event takes place at The Garden at 8967 Galen Road, Lafayette, Tennessee, an egalitarian intentional community and activist hub. The purpose of The Garden is to be a place where those who want to help others can prosper in an autonomous, sustainable way and thereby stop funding those who are working to destroy the earth.
The Garden is also the primary operating hub of The People's Project, a nonprofit organization aiming to support shared spaces through a network of permaculture mutual aid and collectivist autonomous lands. The People's Project has recently established two new shared lands that are already being shared amongst the collective as part of the Share the Planet Plan. Anyone who resonates with this vision is welcome to be part of these efforts as we continue to grow and strengthen this network.
We hope to see you at the Spring Gathering at the Garden, at 8967 Galen Road, Lafayette, Tennessee.
