Given the state of it all, I am still planning on traveling much of Europe and Asia this summer, starting from Germany and Czech Republic. This will be an open-ended trip depending on what I find, and cash I have. It can be many months.
I wish to stay with people and help them on their projects, land, etc., like WWOOF. I would like to spend time in Asia as well-- Thailand, Vietnam, where the WWOOF is not available (to my knowledge).
If anyone has any friends, people on projects I can plug in on, ideas, please write back. I arrive in Europe in the beginning of August.

Subject: [permaculture] Creating A Life Together
Creating a Life Together: Practical Tools to Grow an Intentional Community (http://www.permacultureactivist.net/LifeTogether/CreatingaLifeTogether.html), by Diana Leafe Christian, editor of Communities Magazine, foreword by Patch Adams. 2003 New Society Publishers, 272 pp. $23 (available from Permaculture Activist, May 2003). "Creating a Life Together is an overview of the process of forming new ecovillages and intentional communities, gleaned from founders of dozens of successful communities in North America formed since the early '90s. This is what they did, and what you can do, to create your community dream. It attempts to distill their hard experience into solid advice on getting started as a group, creating vision documents, decision-making and governance, agreements and policies, buying and financing land, communication and process, and selecting people to join you. It's what works, what doesn't work, and how not to reinvent the wheel. This information is not only for people forming new communities - whether or not you already own your land. It can also be valuable for those of you thinking about joining community one day - since you, too, will need to know what works. And it's also for those of you already living in community, since you can only benefit from knowing what others have done in similar circumstances. "
"A great deal of research and trial-and-error has been assembled here, and every potential ecovillager should read it. This book will be an essential guide and manual for the many Permaculture graduates who live in communities or design for them." --Bill Mollison
"Creating a new culture of living peacefully with each other and the planet is our number one need--and this is the right book at the right time. Creating a Life Together will be instrumental in the ecovillage courses I teach. I can't wait to tell people about it." --Hildur Jackson, cofounder, Global Ecovillage Network (GEN); co-editor, Ecovillage Living: Restoring the Earth and Her People.
"A really valuable resource for anyone thinking about intentional community. I wish I had it years ago." -- Starhawk, author of Webs of Power, The Spiral Dance, and The Fifth Sacred Thing -- and committed communitarian.
