How to Visit

Each year hundreds of people visit Alpha. Visitors make a significant contribution to our lives, and all are welcome who are interested in this kind of cooperative living.

Daytime visits are most easily arranged. Please e-mail if you are interested in scheduling a day visit ( We have a limit to the number of people we can handle at any one time, and an initial visit is usually limited to three days (longer if you are travelling a great distance). Weekdays are preferable to weekends, as we can integrate visitors into the work schedule more easily (most of the community has weekends off). There are also animals here, both wild and domesticated, so we ask that people not bring pets with them while they are visiting.

We prefer that our visitors participate in the life of the community as much as circumstances allow.  Most likely, for those physically able, this will include sharing our work – one of the best ways to get to know Alpha. We do not request monetary contributions, although they are welcome.

Visits are best scheduled online.  E-mail our visitor coordinator at:  If you have any further questions, please see our FAQ,
