Twin Oaks Intentional Community
Subscribe to the Leaves of Twin Oaks newsletter.

Welcome to the Twin Oaks Visitor Program. We are happy you have made it and we want to do what we can to make your visit as pleasant and as useful for you as possible. This page is designed to answer some of the most common questions and supplement the regular orientation process.

Twin Oaks has a somewhat complex culture. You cannot really learn all of the normal guidelines (what we call "norms") of the community in your short stay, nor are you expected to. This page is just a starting place to help you learn about us and avoid some misunderstandings. All honest mistakes are forgivable, so read on and don't worry about the things that you don't yet understand; most of them will become clear with time.

This guide can not replace any part of the formal three week program. Please go to all of the orientations that are on your labor sheet (and everything else which is assigned on your labor sheet) even if you feel you already understand the topic.
