Building community is a central focus for many back-to-the-land projects. 

Most commonly, that community is comprised of internal share-holding members, long-term guests, or the extended community of the surrounding village. 

For some projects, that would also include short-term guests and off-site investors. 

No matter what community means to you, many agree that a shifted focus toward a healthy sense of community is vital for a sustainable future.

Today’s episode dives deep with Aly Khan & Alnoor Ladha of Brave Earth (Tierra Valiente), one of Costa Rica’s newest intentional communities. 

Topics covered include creating an onsite school & communally-owned economic engine as a tactic to keep members on-site year-round. 

We also hear about their 50/25/25 model for profit sharing and the value of weekly community councils

One of my favorite moments is the description of their community solidarity network called “Fuerza del Amor” and what they’re doing to integrate their local neighbors into the profit pool. 

There is alot to unpack about the subject of building community! So, if you'd like a short version of all the main points from this episode, we've created this awesome downloadable PDF for you! Download it here!

This episode is brought to you by, well, YOU! 

I haven’t built up my audience enough to have attracted sponsors and all that, so even though it’s the holiday season, you get to support the show without my selling you stuff. 

Isn’t that great!  

So, instead of buying an organic cotton shirt or an online course, maybe you can just buy me a coffee!
