This is not a complete list of opportunities nationwide, but it is still pretty extensive and it begins to demonstrate the level of activity out there. I've posted it incomplete because I didn't want the near-term events to pass unnoticed by those who may be interested. I'll plug away on it and re-post periodically.

Note: there's a description of and link to the Intentional Community Group at the bottom of the diary.

Intentional Community is an inclusive term for ecovillages, cohousing communities, residential land trusts, communes, student co-ops, urban housing cooperatives, intentional living, alternative communities, cooperative living, and other projects where people strive together with a common vision.
