Founded in 1972, Communities magazine is the primary resource for information, stories, and ideas about intentional communities—including urban co-ops, cohousing groups, ecovillages, and rural communes. Communities also focuses on creating and enhancing community in the workplace, in nonprofit or activist organizations, and in neighborhoods. We explore the joys and challenges of cooperation in its many dimensions, and pass the wisdom on to you and your community.

Each 64-to-88-page full-color quarterly issue focuses on a specific theme. All print and digital subscribers receive free access to all current and past issues (180+ issues, 10,000+ pages of material) for online viewing and/or download.

Please subscribe! We are a reader-powered publication, dependent on our community of supporters, writers, and readers for our existence. We invite and welcome your participation.
