Our growing multi-generational community is welcoming new members of all ages. Intentionally designed to promote interaction among neighbors, we are especially interested in welcoming young families to our community. We believe that both children and adults thrive and benefit when all ages live in community.
Adams Creek Cohousing consists of a strong group of amazing people, active in the community and genuinely caring about each other. In times of need, illness, and loss, we are there to support each other. The children are establishing strong bonds along with all the adults. Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, members have joined together several times per week. In person we enjoy group hikes, bike rides, and outdoor potlucks. Creek restoration workers have removed blackberries and ivy to reveal beautiful waterfalls and natural wonders. Creekside happy hours provide an opportunity for making music, singing, laughing and storytelling. The kids love to play along the creek and climb nearby trees. One of our autumn traditions involves making paper lanterns decorated with fall leaves and then parading the neighborhood for Halloween. Our Friday night online zoom happy hours allow all members to connect, sing, play games, tell stories, and have fun, even if they are far away or unable to travel.
We are strengthened in our life together by visions and values for living in community. Expressing our visions and values guides us in the decisions we make and the time we spend together. Sustainability and reduced use of fossil fuels are priorities. We strive to live lightly on the land, sharing electric vehicles and e-bikes.
