    Why are you here?

    GAIA - The Foundation for Sustainable Development - of which I am a founder member, has many objectives in common with The Ishmael Community. I sincerely wish to contact any members in the UK or elsewhere who might wish to further the work of either, or both organisations.

    We are interested in establishing Ishmael-style Communities via our organisation. Obviously we call them 'Gaian Communities', but the idea is basically the same.

    Self-sufficiency, self-reliance, sustainable development, Agenda 21 (the real stuff not the political trimmings), renewable energy, networking, etc.

    Sorry for all those that tried to contact me before, the email address was wrong (a typo).

    Any other personal information/resources/advice/ideas to share?

    Yes! To create a society we all actually want to live in takes time, resources, effort and cold hard cash.

    The Foundation is a non-profit organisation, a legally registered British company (curently going for charitable registration) that is dedicated to community development, and it raises money to set up and run 'Gaian Communities' (in the spiritual sense as well as the Lovelockian 'Gaia Theory' sense).

    If you are interested then please contact us. Check out the website:

    It is still under construction so please be gentle. Also please use the Guest Book, otherwise we won't know what you think.
