Abundant Dawn Community



Located in Floyd, Virginia, United States

Community Description

We are the stewards and human inhabitants of 90 acres of hilly and diverse land nestled in a bend of a river in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We’re 28 miles from a state university, an hour from a small city with an airport, and five minutes from a small but culturally diverse town of about 500.

We have 70 acres in a Virginia Conservation Land Trust to protect the land. We continue to work on our land plan and guidelines to care for the environment as we build our dreams together.

We are committed to living thoughtfully–with beauty, economy, conviviality, and care. We love this land where we live and try to treat it well. We study and practice environmentally sound building methods, use composting or low water use toilets, and in one building area have a constructed wetland for our gray water treatment. We eat together regularly, help each other out, and enjoy each others company.

While our adult members currently include single, partnered, and married individuals, we welcome diversity of lifestyle. We strive to listen to each other as we make consensus decisions and live closely. While we have no unified spiritual path, we strive to honor different expressions of spirituality as a way to honor our diversity as individuals. We enjoy celebrations of many kinds of special days each year including Thanksgiving and the Solstices.

We share community expenses.
