The article on fox is what I believe you saw, and it was somewhat confusing. We are a co-op, and membership in the co-op allows you group-ownership of the land, which is then leased-back to the members and non-members of Meadowlark. The rent, which are set by the members, amount to a total of $0.10 per meter per year (about $33 per acre per month) and your share of utilities (if you use them). These offset real costs of the co-op. Whether you use your land sustainably or not is your choice, and you don’t have to be a member of the co-op to lease land. We do require organic compliance so that all leaseholders can apply for organic status with the USDA if they desire. We also have a prohibition on marijuana, whether for recreational or medicinal use. Animals need to be compassionately treated, with food, water and shelter provided every day.
if you wish to conform to the laws of the land, and the democratic will of your neighbors (which you can participate in as an equal), and pay your fees on time like all other members, especially your utility bill, you are very welcome here. Here, you’ll find that even pagans and catholics and jews and buddhists and christians all get along just fine, and no matter your personal beliefs, if you are a woman of your word, you can keep the trust of your neighbors.
If you are still interested, please do not hesitate but do call, and I can show you what land is left, and it can be yours today.
