Our Mission Statement

     The purpose of Dos Tortugas is to be a residential community where people share land, encourage member-managed agriculture and businesses, and support cooperative and harmonious living situations here and in the larger world.

We believe in the inherent worth and dignity of every person regardless of gender, age, or sexual orientation.

We respect the right of all to express their own beliefs about the nature of reality.

We promote stewardship of the land and ecologically sound use of our resources and creatures from which we gain sustenance.

We share responsibility in shaping our community through cooperative search of solutions to protect the needs and well-being of all concerned.

We recognize that the ultimate success of our endeavor rests not with any formal document, but with a more subtle spiritual bond.  We pledge ourselves to that bond.
