When I first began developing the concept of the Fire Well Community, my goal was to create a safe house. I felt that it was important to offer a space to folks who are struggling with physical, spiritual, or mental hardships, and would benefit from the healthy support of an interactive supportive community. The concept quickly outgrew one roof and the Fire Well Community Collective was born.
Like many big plans, the ambition was greater than the resources, and I pushed myself beyond my own limits by overextending my "help" beyond my capability to maintain to collective. A learning experience to say the least. The Recycling Route came to an abrupt halt when my truck was clearly beyond repair, and I recycled it.
One by one, I had to walk away from the properties I had invested in. I had to admit that I had tried to do too much by myself, and thought that I had failed. I have since continued to receive messages from people who were interested in joining the collective.
With careful consideration I have decided to bring the "collective" back to life. Restarting as a "virtual collective", I hope to be able to redevelop and nurture this collective concept. The first feature that I am bringing back is our Fire Well Community Classified Barter Page. If you have goods or services that you are willing to offer at a sliding scale, or for barter, please send me a message. I will be glad to advertise you for free!
More to come!
