9 ‘Living in community is how the people at Findhorn express their commitment to a daily life that actively brings spiritual and sustainable values into practice. Taking part in the community means meditating together, working together, growing and preparing food together, welcoming guests together, building houses together and well celebrating with song and dance together. All these aspects of life and more are food for the continued growth of consciousness towards a peaceful and sustainable life.’ (http://www.findhorn.info/)

10 Collective Ownership Wholly owned by Trusts Co-operatives Found in Communes Religious Communities Housing Co-ops

11 Collective ownership: Graham Downs Community/Renaissance

12 Co-operatives: Chippenham Community

13 Co-operatives You are both tenant and landlord, but you own the thing without actually owning it. In the primary rules of our co-op (which are registered, with The Friendly Society) you can’t sell a co-op property for personal profit. So I can’t just sell my share of The Mill. We, as a collective, could sell The Mill, but we’d have to reinvest the money from the sale in something used for similar purposes – common good. We’re more guardians than owners; we’re guardians of the co- operative, not owners. (Paul, People In Common, )
