The Fellowship for Intentional Community nurtures connections and cooperation among communitarians and their friends. We provide publications, referrals, support services, and sharing opportunities for a wide range of intentional communities, cohousing groups, ecovillages, community networks, support organizations, and people seeking a home in community.
Looking for more information, in more depth, in your quest for community? The Resources section and the Wiki at the FIC family of websites present an array of free services to help deepen your understanding of intentional community life, including the following : FIC logo

THE INTENTIONAL COMMUNITY WIKI. We are growing the IC wiki into a collection of shared knowledge, information, and resources for intentional communities, those interested in intentional communities, and those interested in creating more community in their lives in whatever form. Read it, enjoy, and then please pitch in to help us improve the content!
Wikis are user-created, written and edited by their online community of users—Wikipedia is the best known example.
COMMUNITY CLASSIFIEDS. Listings of land/houses/real estate for sale, services, job opportunities, products, and publications offered by, and of interest to, intentional communities.
