We are currently 5 households consisting of 8 adults and 4 children. Our home is situated on the outskirts of Bradford onavon near Bath in a converted school building, which used to be a large manor house. We have around 8 acres of land, an orchard, plenty of room to grow some veg and some old mature trees. Other amenities include a large communal hall, outdoor swimming pool, tennis court and a sauna. We also have solar panels to provide community electricity and a reed bed sewage system that treats all our waste.
Many of us have been living together since 1996. At the moment we get together one day a month to work and share meals. We have meetings when there is a need and there are regular events such as dancing and book and singing groups that often run from our communal hall.
