Cohousing Directory - Community View
Tres Placitas Del Rio is a small-scale cohousing community. We live in an urban neighborhood with a rural feel along a tree-lined river. We are 16 adults and 7 children in 11 households, with ages from 6 to 65. We have 11 houses plus a community ramada and plaza on 2.5 acres around a large open space. Pattern language, permaculture, and each member's uniqueness shape and enrich our community. Homes are owner-designed and sometimes owner-built. We love children, animals, gardens, and creativity. An attitude of resource consciousness and land stewardship is fostered.
We operate by consensus and are striving to find the balance between community life and personal freedom. Our relationships are based on mutual respect between committed, caring, creative, and responsible individuals of all ages. We tend to engage actively in the social and political issues of our larger community and the planet. We are (extra)ordinary people from varied backgrounds living life in community without pretense. Tres Placitas is a strong base for a healthy life--a place to settle in and call it home.
