Steps to Joining

Please take a moment to fill out this membership questionnaire.

We host an open house, garden work day and potluck lunch on the 2nd Sunday most months; check the calendar for upcoming events. You can also call or email any time with questions.

After you have met the community and toured the spaces, there are a few ways to become involved with our project:

  • Keep coming to monthly open houses/potlucks and other open events, to get to know us better. On the rare occasion that a rental opens up, it is usually taken by someone who has been around.
  • If you aren’t already very familiar with the concept of Cohousing as described in the book Cohousing by McCammant and Durrett, get to know about this growing subculture and its model for creating communities with shared resources and private homes.  You can start by checking out www.Cohousing.org.
  • This is not a subsidized community, so rents are in line with the local market.

Roles and Expectations

Throughout the Covid year, we continued to have common meals  in our beautiful courtyard. For most of the year each person brought their own food, and now we are back to having two members cook the meal for everyone. We currently have scheduled common meals four times a month, plus frequent spontaneous lunches.  Our meetings are once a month, and we have a gardening/work day once a month. You can see all of these events on the calendar.

We hope to find new members who have the time and energy to fully participate in the community.
