510. Behind-the-Scenes: Why It Takes a Village with Jeff & Jake

By Commune

Commune Co-Founders Jeff and Jake are entangled in a series of conversations on how we can address our most pressing personal and global problems. One of the solutions is so old and obvious that we overlook its simple power: living in community. In this episode, Jake tells Jeff about the 240-acre agrivillage he is helping build in the Pacific Northwest and they discuss why communities of the past have flourished — or withered on the vine.

Learn more about the Rooted Northwest agrivillage at rootednw.org. They are still looking for more members to be residents!
