In Summary . . .
In the orientation to
the Goodenough Community System, please note that the first
incorporation (1981) created the American Association for the
Furtherance of Community which was a group of strong, motivated, and
capable activists who have further initiated:
- The development
of a culturally oriented community of friends whose primary
purpose is to develop themselves and improve their relationships
under the guidance of the Goodenough Community System.
- A spiritual
initiative that has deepened their lives and motivated them to
support a church with its ongoing programs of spiritual guidance and
general Watchcare--Convocation: A Church and Ministry.
- An initiative
that values people living collaboratively, developing among
themselves a quality of life that lifts their sights as to what is
humanly possible. The creation and dissolution of the Goodenough
Village Cooperative in Seattle both challenged and prepared our
members for forming additional close living groups. Thus, Sahale
Ecovillage will continue to be composed of ecologically informed
persons who are interested in sharing life and work together in
sustainable ways. We intend to be ecologically wise, preparing
ourselves for social challenges and adjustments, while being
spiritually open to being changed ourselves. We do this because
we want to demonstrate a community in service to the greater good
and to the larger society.
If you find your self interested in any
aspect of our work, and want to become more involved, please email
