The community started in 2015 and we are now 6 members. We live on a land of 70 acres in Paspebiac which is in the Gaspe area, 10 hours north-east of Montreal, in the province of Quebec, Canada. We communicate mostly in french.
The vision we have for le Manoir community is a balance of 5 principles. Here are some details of what we are and what we want to become:
A community of 12 to 30 members. We wish to keep a small scale group, in order to nourish the relation that links members to each other. In the mean time, it is enough people to bring diversity of ideas and interests.
We adopt a fashion style very "retro": simplicity! We desire to diminish our ecological footprint. To us, it means opting for "less goods, more links". It means to question our "real needs". It means to seek to make, exchange, find, share what we need. It means to choose the sustainable option.
