Compersia is an intentional community located in the heart of Washington, DC. More than just a residential community, we are founded on a deep commitment that through sharing we can do more. We share our labor, resources, and lives – as together we can achieve more than any of us could individually. We are inspired by the 7 principals of the FEC, and work to implement them at Compersia.
This implementation manifests in many different ways;

The annual assembly for the FEC takes place during March, in an attempt to happen at the beginning of the year when it's least inconvenient to everyone. We have gardeners whose season hasn't yet kicked into high gear, a goat herd who's fielding baby goats (conveniently within range of the assembly), outdoor workers whose season hasn't totally started yet, and people to whom the changing of seasons has absolutely no effect.
