Twin Oaks Community

Since 1967, Twin Oaks has grown to over 85 adults and children on 400 acres in central Virginia. We're two hours from Washington, DC, one hour from the Blue Ridge Mountains. Our age and size mean both diversity and stability. We offer a wide range of facilities and social and cultural opportunities. Income work includes hammock-making, organic tofu production, book indexing, seed growing, and various other small cottage businesses. Other work includes our large vegetable and herb gardens, dairy cows and cheese making, and several dozen other smaller work areas.

2016 Assembly of the Federation of Egalitarian Communities by Rejoice, 5 years ago

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.
