“Primarily Redfield is a home to a collection of people who have chosen to live and organise collectively and take on the stewardship of the house and surrounding land.”

The membership process

Becoming a member usually takes a number of regular visits over the course of a few months. We are primarily interested in how we might all get along in this large, shared, single household with a lot going on so regular visits are key.

The membership process involves first coming to visit on one or two of our organised visitor days, work activity weekends or maintenance weeks. After a visit or two and once you have met all current members, you can write and apply to join the membership process.

Once accepted into the membership process, it normally takes 2-3 more weekend visits by potential members, and then a two week stay, before membership is agreed. This is to give both potential members and existing members plenty of opportunity to explore what it would be like to live together.

As we live in close proximity to each other and share a lot of common space, our ability to get along together is probably the most important criteria looked for in new members. We make decisions by consensus, and membership is no different. This means that as long as everyone consents to further visits by people interested in becoming members they can come to visit again.

If you think you might be interested you’ll first need to come on a visitor day, listed on the visiting page. If you’re interested contact
