Intentional Communities

Should anyone be wondering what kinds of things they are missing out on by not sending their children to a hippie German school, here is an e-mail I received this morning through our school listserv:
Would anyone here be seriously interested in starting an intentional community? My husband and I have been looking around for some property to build a house (hopefully straw bale with at least partial solar power). The thought occurred to me that others might be interested in doing the same. I'm not thinking a commune with bunkhouses - more along the lines of a well-designed small neighborhood with some community property (play area, garden, maybe a community house).

My husband and I were heartened to know that there might still be some idea of private property within the community, but I don't think we're going to sign up.
