 East Wind community, Tecumseh, Missouri

East Wind Community is an intentional community located in the Missouri Ozarks. Founded in 1973, it is a secular and democratic community in which members hold all communities assets in common. Each member is also given food, shelter, clothing, medical care, education, and a monthly stipend. All major decisions are made by direct democratic processes and most positions in the community are elected.


East Wind Community owns 1,045 acres (4.23 km2) of land and several businesses. The community is located off Route 160 on the southern end of county road 547 in Ozark County just outside Tecumseh, Missouri.


Their stated goal is peace, social justice, and economic and social democracy. The name was taken from a quote by Mao Zedong, which was along the lines of "The East Wind shall prevail over the West."


The East Wind Community has several income sources including a nut butter business named East Wind Nutbutters that generates $500,000 annually. The community manufactures roasted peanuts, peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter and tahini as well as a peanut butter and a tahini that are organic. In addition they produce "Utopian Rope Sandals", also known as "Utopes". They used to produce handmade drums through Slackjaw Percussion. Members are required to work a certain number of hours and income from the businesses is used to support the community.
