We are excited to be developing a multi-generational cohousing and agrihood community on 15 acres only 30 miles outside of Nashville TN. We envision 28 – 32 privately owned homes and 2-acres of professionally managed farm on this site. Our members are enthusiastic about supporting one another in living lightly on the Earth, enjoying connections with each other and our semi-rural site, and practicing collaborative decision-making as we create a nurturing community. We held our first Schematic Design Workshop May 13-14, 2023 and now have a site plan! We have scheduled a common house design workshop for Members the weekend of January 19-21, 2024 .
As an agrihood we are committed to having a working farm as part of our community. We will engage in regenerative agriculture to protect and improve water, soil, and air quality while producing food for ourselves and the neighboring community. Burns Village & Farm members will have the option of volunteering on the farm. We appreciate the family that has cared for their 150 acre+ farm for four generations and has offered this parcel to us. We share their vision of conserving the bulk of their farm for agriculture. We believe this is part of what will make this community an especially wonderful place to raise children.
We are thrilled about our location. The small town of Burns offers a variety of businesses and restaurants, as well as two municipal parks. Burns Elementary School is less than 2 miles away, and Burns Middle School is less than 3 miles away. Just 5 minutes away, you can hike in Montgomery Bell State Park (site of Ernest Goes to Camp).
Dickson is less than 10 minutes away with unique and interesting shops and restaurants, cultural amenities including the Clement Railroad Hotel Museum and Grand Old Hatchery music venue, grocery stores and a hospital, and a new public skate park.
Nashville, known for its music scene, is only 30 minutes away and has all the amenities of a large city including an international airport, symphony, art museums and galleries, and universities.
We host virtual information sessions twice a month, and site tours once a month. Please visit our website and give us a call.
