The Garden Intentional Community Gathering September 13-26 in Tennessee (1 Viewer)


Mar 27, 2014
This is an invitation to all to our end of summer gathering at The Garden intentional community. We have had travellers of all kinds like hitchhikers, rv and van dwellers, rainbow gatherers, organic farm volunteers, and other people who live an alternative way of life, and invite anyone who wants to come to this free event to enjoy the last days of summer and welcome the autumn.

The Garden intentional community is having a gathering that is Friday, September 13th to September 26th, 2019 at 8967 Galen Road, Lafayette, Tennessee. We will have bonfires, music, art, workshops, discussions about the world's problems and their solutions, and lots of good food. This ecovillage is offgrid and practices simplicity, sustainability, autonomy, egalitarianism, anarchism, permaculture, rewilding, skepticism of mainstream society, and sharing land freely. It has shelters and camping space available, an outhouse, wood-fired grill kitchen, dining area, chicken coops, water well, community areas, and gardens. The event is free to all, and everyone is welcome. It lasts for two weeks, but you can stay as long as you like. If you cannot make it to the event, you are welcome to come anytime of the year and contribute to helping and living in this 10-year-old intentional community.

We also have regular opportunities to travel to other communities and gatherings with similar philosophies as part of The People's Project which has a facebook group at

Total amount

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $55.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully this will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $55.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $55.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
