For transparency, and to give you an idea of our financial gestion and our needs, we made up a list of expenses and donations. We don’t count the expenses linked to gasoline and food that are paid at about 85% by the residents. The remaining 15% is given by visitors.
Other expenses have been made to start the project before June 2016 but there are not listed. Those are expenses of transport to visit lands, financial gifts and materials given to a previous farmer where we thought Eotopia would happen.
The expenses since the acquisition of the land until today are divided like this : 1/ The expenses made with the bank account of the association ; 2/ The expenses made by the residents themselves as gift ; 3/ The material gifts from visitors. The financial participation of the visitors are not accounted for because they have been systematically used for daily expenses. 4/ Material gift received from the residents.

To be considered :
We have three vehicules but they belong to some of the member of the group. They are not gifts. Some of you might wonder where the money come from for the residents. We could buy the place thanks to the savings of each member and the selling of the house of one member.
The incomes of the actual residents come from diverse sources : Savings, pension, governmental help, books selling and money gained from some temporary jobs.
