I think also offering a summer camp kind of deal would be a good way to get people.  Has anyone heard of places like Not Back To School Camp, founded by Grace Lewellyn, or Tracker School, founded by Tom Brown Jr.?  I'm thinking along the lines of places like that.

That would be cool.  If we could lure parents to send their kids their with the idea of teaching kids how to work hard.  We might even be able t play it up as a punishment.  Then when the kids show up we teach revolutionize them!  Heck we'll need new members if we want this commune to survive into the future and revolutionizing local kids is easier than making our own.

Genious, glorfon, genious. The real trick, though, would be keeping up the facade without being exposed.


On the topic of outreach, I think we should do some viral marketing, plug the site everywhere, advertise in any available forums, etc.

However, wasn't it decided that for 20 acres we should have a cap of like 10 or so people? Should we begin looking into land and people interested in starting more communes right away? (and again, how serious are we about this endeavor?)

Yes I'd be verymuch for starting other communes If you can find any one with land and a dream I'll give them a section of the forum.  Also I found out it's actually 26 acres.  I'm going to talk to my cousin who also inherited 26 acres right next to it.  If he would join then we'd have 52 acres! Not alor but it's substantial.

and that means more land and more people could be supported.  Smile
and a bigger build project Sad

if 52 acres was a giant square it would be .46 kilometers across  or about ~.3 miles

just so we have an idea of the size

But it'll be awhile until I speak to my cousin again.  So for now we should work on the assumption that there will be 26 acres.

Having a PK training area wouldn't just teach people PK.  It would also be a basic exercise area, good for keeping people in shape without expensive equipment.

Also, if most of the main buildings are underground, having space for outreach programs won't really be an issue, as long as it's kept above ground.

Also, 26 acres is way bigger than you think...it's roughly...(these are rough calculations, based on 1 acre = 4046 m^2) 65 square miles...

How do you get .46 km?  There are 1000 m in a km...which is 4 km per acre.  4 km * 26 acre = 106 km^2 = 65 mi^2.

People, 26 acres is huge!

1 square mile, =640 acres. =27878400 square feet

lol, again, let's get this in perspective. With 20 acres, we would have 1/32 of a mile.

Okay, so, back on the  subject of outreach and bringing people in. Maybe we should moderately-aggressively work on expansion of territory?

ok, zeeranks screwed up in his math cuz he was too lazy to write it out, but i used a unit conversion program and a calculator. its 105218.266982 square meters (26 acres)
http://www.digitaldutch.com/unitconverter/
sqrt 105218.266982 = 324.373653
way to go google calculator.
26 acres is a 325 meter square.
thats like 345 yards...
