About 5 miles north of Athens, GA, at a former girl scout camp between two perennial streams, is the home of the Orange Twin Conservation Community, a pedestrian-based eco-village built on 150 acres (with a 100 acres set aside for preservation).

The Orange Twin Community has stated goals of living "with each other and all forms of life...in a way that is respectful, considerate, and open to growth" and to "support each other, to encourage creativity and dreams, and to share our discoveries."

Laura Carter of Elf Power is one of the founders and sustaining members of the community. Orange Twin Records is also run out of this community, putting out records by the likes of Neutral Milk Hotel, Elf Power, the Gerbils, Elyse, and Jack Logan.

The Orange Twin Community has seen performances by Bonnie "Prince" Billy, Elf Power, Jeff Mangum, and several others.
