Breaking ground 2021! We're building a multi-generational cohousing neighborhood in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley! Our group is an artsy, sustainably-minded, social-justice oriented, garden-growing, fun-loving bunch of mostly introverts. Even so, we're looking forward to common meals, fire-pit chats, art parties, movie watching, lego building, garden-growing and just chillin' on the front porches together.
Juniper Hill Commons, our 5.4 acre, 27-home cohousing neighborhood, will be located in the small city of Harrisonburg, Virginia (population ~ 54,000). Harrisonburg (which is nicknamed "The Friendly City") is a great place to raise kids, with a dual language public school program available (half day taught in Spanish, half in English), the nationally acclaimed Shenandoah Valley Children’s Choir, the rockin’ Explore More Children’s museum, and plenty of parks and places to play.
We're looking for more kids and adults of all ages to join us as neighbors! Harrisonburg is a family-friendly university town with access to lots of nature- we love it here, and we think you will too! Breaking ground late 2021, and moving in 2022/2023.
For more information, come to one of our info sessions or visit our website www.juniperhillcommons.org , where you can read member bios, view our proposed site and house plans, and add yourself to our newsletter list to keep up with our progress. If you’re in the area, we’d love to have you come to a potluck and tour our property.
