Ten of us are resident members. This means we share responsibility for running Rainbow Valley Company. Others rent a home from the company or a member and one came with his own mobile accommodation.

WHO WE ARE

Some of us moved onto the land in the 1970s inspired by the collective dream of freedom, sharing and sustainability.

Most of us are over fifty five. We number twenty two at present, including two teenagers and two younger children.
We have two potters, one sculptor, four school teachers, two counselors, two mental health clinicians, one caterer housekeeper, one administrator, one electronics engineer and two farm workers.

Three of us are retired from paid work. We are diverse in terms of many interests and values. What unites us is a valuing of individuality, community and taking care of the land.
