John Stansfield - Building Intentional Community

John Stansfield of Waiheke Island - Materialising the dream of an organic farm in community, to pioneering waste management and recycling.

How do we build intentional community, what are the dynamics, the rules, if any? What are the common threads that bind people to each other, and how do we do co-operation and fun, that enables us as participators to both love and cry to evolve a successful venture?

Listen to a delightful understanding of how an organic dream grew into an oasis of fulfillment as well as extending into a waste stream management and recycling system that in many ways is a world leader.

With current global events pointing us towards community and cooperation, see how gardens, organics and neighbourhood support overlap with Transition Towns as Waiheke Islanders pioneer the shaping of an experiment of sustainability, goodwill and families.
