THE FERALCULTURE LAND LIBERATION PROJECT
FERALCULTURE is an online and real-world intentional community hell bent on freeing as much land from industrial agriculture as possible. Coupled with that is a belief that the seeds of agriculture sprout into the control and domination orientation of domesticated life. We value the wild, and disvalue the taming of our home planet.
We concentrate on a distributed network of small nodes of land rather than large contiguous parcels.
The FERALCULTURE concept of land procurement and liberation is simple. To maximize access to land and flexibility for all members, we target relatively low-priced properties as near as possible to landscapes containing an abundance of wild food, or conducive to nudging life along through permaculture design.
What this looks like in practice is beautiful semi-remote areas adjacent to forests, lakes, mountains, rivers, oceans, beaches withing walking distanace of public lands with hunting, fishing, and foraging opportunities that we don’t have to “own”, and small gardens and/or camps that people can migrate freely between as groups or individuals.
All community members are welcome to come and go to any group property as they please. Joining Fees go to expanding the number of land nodes.
We find that sedentism leads to a range of social drama, and follow the immediate-return hunter-gatherer norm of a nomadic, semi-nomadic, or non-sedentary mode of existence. The groups’ concept of multiple clusters of property nodes in various bioregions assist in this goal and allow fission-fusion groups to ebb and flow with the desires of individuals and the call of the seasons.
