Books notwithstanding, our visit to Twin Oaks was wonderful and informative, and we were lucky to have a personal tour of several of homes, common spaces and cottage industries (which include their famous hammocks and tofu production).
Twin Oaks is one of only a handful of communities that practice complete income-sharing, a lifestyle that is certainly not for everyone. We felt quite at home at Twin Oaks, and would actually be open to a three-week trial visit at some point in the future, although Tina would unfortunately not be welcome. So, an extended stay at Twin Oaks may be something we undertake some time in a post-Tina future.
We are very grateful for the tour and visit, and came away feeling very good about this village of like-minded and industrious communitarians.
