We are creating a unique experience, bethshean is a unique community. Some would consider us prosperous. But, we that prosperity is a relative thing. Some of my best times have been when I had very little money but lots of freedom and time to follow my intrests. The individual must find for themselves the balence of having and needing in their life. Some needing is a good thing, it keeps one moving forward.

one needs to be their own leader and not a blind follower. If you follow blindly, you will spend your time and money fulfilling a strangers dreams and needs


Valley was the name of the first theoretical community. It was created in late 1982, by a group of friends with an interest in social, political, and environmental issues. It started with the basic principles of a group of small extended families. It was placed in a remote valley in the cascade range area of western Washington state. It had approximately 250 acres of land. agriculturally based economy, with a small percentage of the population commuting to outside jobs. organized as a township. The concepts were not very well formed, and kept to a very general format. How much space is required for a person? How important is privacy? Why keep laws?

Bethshean is the successor to the valley community.
