It looks like we are going to have a larger event.  There are already over 100 sold tickets plus more than 20 invited presenters, and we are in discussions with many more folks about attending and rides.  If you’re still searching for a ride, or can offer a ride to someone else, please fill out the Ride Share form.

The 2023 Communities Conference Program and schedule are available now on our website.

Please complete this Participant Survey to help us understand your plans, schedule your volunteer shifts, and re-affirm covid protocols.  

Covid Protocols- As a reminder- all attendees must show proof of a negative covid test, with a sample taken less than 24 hours before arrival on site (at-home tests are fine). You can test in advance and send us your results via email. If your are not able to test in advance, tests will also be available at the gate for $5 each (cash preferred, but credit cards, Venmo, and PayPal are also options).

When packing for coming to the Communities Conference, don’t forget to bring items for the “FREE TABLE” – This is a place where folks can offer up their pre-loved items to become somebody else’s treasure. In the past, people have brought art, CDs, jewelry, toiletries, clothing, books, and anything else you can imagine. Take part in the radical act of sharing by bringing some items that might be useful or of interest to other attendees –no exchange of money involved.

Sunday Evening Program: The Communities Conference ends on Sunday afternoon.  Acorn has invited all of the participants to come over for dinner and evening activities (tours and celebration).  Acorn is 7 miles from Twin Oaks and we will organize a shuttle to dinner and back.  Conference participants are welcome to stay at the conference site Sunday and Monday nights.  There will be a morning tour on Monday of Twin Oaks for those who are interested. 

Monday Program: On Monday following the Communities Conference, Rustling Roots Ecological Education Center as a part of Cambia Community will host a series of workshops on topics ranging from permaculture and ecology to community building to music and dance. 

Tickets are $40, or $20 for those who only attend one session (morning or afternoon). Tickets include lunch and dinner. Food will be vegan and include local produce from our network of community farms. You can find more details about Monday’s program on our website
