B.A. Cribbin is freelance writer who writes about travel, new forms of community, and the place of religion in the modern world. His work showcases innovative, idiosyncratic communities getting their hands dirty, as well as individuals forging their own path in life in the fight for a freer, fairer world. One of his goals is to show how many vibrant, life-affirming projects there are, outside of mainstream media coverage. He currently lives in an ecovillage in North Germany, teaching in a special education school.
