Trades and services phase 1

This one is pretty simple. Do we want to offer trades and services? Discuss before voting please.

Of course phase 2 is deciding what those trades and services are.

Yes, very much so.  Not for profits though because then we can't be a non-for-profit croup and we get screw with property taxes.  But we can say "donations welcome".  And we can sell things just not directly at the commune we can take things to farmers markets and craft fairs to sell them.  Or make it look like a garage sale.

I think we can make not-for-profit sales so long as we use it all for subsistence. I'm not sure, though.

I definitely like the idea of farmer's markets. It means we'll get out of the commune more and get to know the community a lot better, and may even be able to bring people in or get donations that way! As long as it isn't too hot I'd be all for taking care of that...though I'm frankly terribly at math so maybe that isn't a good idea. I do have some ideas for what we could sell or make but I'll wait.

Can we start phase 2 now? I'm itching to share my ideas Very Happy

Sure why not.
