Yes, actually I happened onto their website a couple of weeks ago while researching vegan communes for a friend.

They have a couple of odd policies, though, at least in my opinion. No carnivorous pets are allowed (without a community vote beforehand), as they feel that there would be no sense in requiring the human occupants to be vegan if the animals weren't likewise required to be. If the community does vote to allow one or more in, then they have to be allowed to hunt their own food, rather than be fed store bought meat-based foods.

This is the first I've heard of it... but it sounds awesome. Actually, I'd also like to hear about any drug-free vegan communities, anywhere.

[url=http://www.g0v.org/agreements.html]# Carnivorous animals that can not adapt to a vegan diet obviously create issues for many vegans and are therefore generally excluded. Following a proposal to introduce such an animal, a vote will be taken.

# If accepted into the community, carnivorous animals will be expected to obtain any animal food for themselves, as nature intended. There is little point in expecting all human community members to be vegan if animal products are being obtained to feed animal members.[/url]

Just so there's no confusion, I don't really have an issue with the first point, except that I wouldn't live anywhere I couldn't have a cat, or cats. It's certainly their right to have that restriction, though. I do have a large issue with the second point, which is also their right to have, but a pretty illogical one, in my opinion.

I know of a vegan community in Hawaii but from what I recall, when I looked into it a few years ago, it was pretty intolerate of alternative lifestyles (gay/lesbian) and also strong believers of corporal punishment. Same one, compassionategrrrl?

If it's Garden O Vegan, then it's the same one. They like beating their kids and don't like homosexuals. gOv is not exactly new though, they have been around for at least 5 years that I know of and so far nobody else has been abled to live with them. :?
