There’s No Place Like Here: Communal Living with Nikki Silva

While traveling to help promote Etsy as a sponsor of the Bay Area Maker Faire, I was fortunate enough to receive an invitation to visit the wondrous place that is La Selva. After a beautiful sunlight-through-the-mist drive down the winding seaside road of Highway 1, I reached Watsonville, CA, and eventually La Selva, where Nikki Silva, a public radio producer best known for her work as one half of the Kitchen Sisters, greeted me. Nikki led me through the communal home that she and eight others have built for themselves in over thirty years of hard toiling work. Naturally we waited all day for a break in the fog so I could get a shot of the majestic view overlooking Monterey Bay.

Occupy Big Business: The Sharing Economies Quiet Revolution by Sara Horowitz for the Atlantic.
An excerpt of the article:
…. the Quiet Revolution is a return to the basics, with a focus on community, health, ecology, happiness, and balance. At the root of it is the idea of mutualism - people coming together, pooling resources, and meeting their own needs. The simplicity of it is what makes it so appealing: it’s not led by government or big business, just a group of people with shared needs and a common vision.
