Dandelion's Labor System DN-C2
Approved July '88

In our Visitor Orientation, we run through how our labor system works, introducing it by saying that this is one of the important ways we practice our principles of equality and co-operation. We don't claim that our particular system is the only way to organize work, of course, but it has evolved here over the past dozen years or so, land has served us well. Here are some of its benefits and advantages:

Initiation and Early History AF-A2

Alpha farm began with a powerful compulsion at a Quaker meeting for worship in March 1971. The setting was a camp in New Jersey where about 90 people from around the world who were associated with the American Friends Service Committee (the "service arm" of the Quakers, dedicated to implementing the values of their faith through, peace and social action projects) were convened to reconsider what they were about.

A Prospectus AF-A1

We call our project Alpha, a beginning. Alpha is an intentional community which has been envisioned and is now becoming a reality. This prospectus is written for interested friends for their understanding and support. "We" are a few people (calling ourselves a family) who have come together over the past year. We are each in agreement that the overall environment in which we find ourselves--physical, social, economic, spiritual-- inhibits us from bringing forth the full fruit of our humanity. We are grieved by a loss of control over ourselves. We seek the opportunity to create , in an atmosphere of freedom and reality, a viable alternative for ourselves and, we hope, for our brothers and sisters caught in similar situations. For this opportunity we have decided to risk our present positions and securities. What action is necessary to unlock the boxes of society and the boxes of our own minds to live more fully? This prospectus for Alpha attempts to explain in a preliminary way our motivations, our initial actions and plans, and our needs.
Why Alpha?
