Well, you can tell your friend that most rural communities in the DR are completely, I mean quite totally, unintentional. At very best they were started with the attitude of "It seemed like a good idea at the time", when a couple of emancipated and/or emaciated cane cutters arrived in this dried-up river bed, set up their temporary cardboard and corrugated tin shack, and moved inside with their 11 kids, 2 chickens, 1 goat and shared pig. They did quite well until it rained somewhere upriver and the shack, kids, chickens, goat and half a pig got washed away in the ensuing deluge. So they went off aways and tried somewhere else, got washed away again and came back to the first place and brought their in-laws with them for another temporary settlement until it rained again.I have a friend that was wondering if there are any rural intentional communities in the DR
Don't know, but from what I hear they have big guns and are a little crazy. This makes it not an intentional community as I understand it, and as I think the op is asking for.How about the group in Mulata 3? Dr Brunkt (sp?), isn't theirs a religious based community...
He means Intentional and not International Community.I think it would help if the OP told us what he meens by International Community.
And I gave you two examples of Intentional Communities.Thanks you all, I think she was thinking of what used to be called a commune. A group of people buying a large parcel and creating a farm/small village. With the people working together.
