School of Living

Heathcote land is held in trust by the School of Living (SoL). SoL is also the trustee for other communities in the PA-MD-VA region. SoL was formed in 1934 by Ralph Borsodi to help others acheive a more fulfilling and self-sufficient life. The School of Living does work in many areas, including:

  • Community land trusts
  • Ecological use of resources
  • Alternative education
  • Consensus decision making
  • Cooperative living
  • Permaculture
  • Decentralism
  • Land issues
  • Tax reform
  • Monetary reform
  • Local self-reliance

The School of Living publishes a quarterly journal called The Green Revolution. For more information see their website: School of Living
