Become an Explorer!
We need a few more families ready for the exciting design and development stage of this community. People ready to roll up their sleeves and get to work. To find out if our community is right for you, we offer an opportunity to explore and dig deeper before committing.
Five Steps you can take to help you decide if you want to become a future neighbor:
1. Think through why you want to be part of this cohousing community, for reasons such as:
Having a balance of both community and privacy
Sharing meals and good times
Living within walking/biking distance of natural outdoor spaces
Living in a sustainable net-zero energy community
Collaborating to help shape your future environment
Farming and gardening together with neighbors you know well
Having a safe space for your children to play freely in
And much, much more!
