We've just started looking into intentional communities. That'd be the way to go if oil (and therefore food) became scare. I'm just not sure we'd like a closed community per se, as many of these are; we'd rather just be in a small town surrounded by like-minded people who are interested in sharing resources and talents. But how to find such a place? That's our biggest challenge right now . . .

Back From the Land: How Young Americans Went to Nature in the 1970's and Why They Came Back by Eleanor Agnew.
Agnew was a back-to-the-lander who moved from Boston to rural Maine with her family. It's a great read.
