Certain themes cover all the initiatives. These include health, recreation, and business orientation. Most of the initiatives aim to generate income. The exception is the volunteer garbage collection network in the valley. The initiatives all focus on creative team building. They wish to build teams that implement the initiative instead of recruiting people whose priority is earning opportunities. Most of the initiatives we study have a specific purpose. A regular produce and health services fair acts as a hub for the intentional communities and is also used for networking. Various festivals and garbage collection events are also network projects often linked to the fair, and there are places for lectures on environmental issues in the communities. There are educational initiatives for children that involve several ICs, including Ne-sadik (“Not-a-Kindergarten”) and Ne-shkola (“Not-a-School”), which were created by parents for collective home education. Informants talk of their desire to hold events and create spaces for children. These are not authorized by the authorities and are only run by the parents unofficially. There is also a children’s space at the Valley Fair, where children do craft every week.
