Alchemy Farm Cohousing combines the social design of cohousing with ecological forms of housing and agricultural use of our common landscape. Our mission is “to create and nurture a cohousing community where individuals live in integrity and harmony with each other and with nature, using sustainable agriculture and energy-efficient methods to produce and provide food, energy, and shelter; and where community members are encouraged to grow to their greatest potential while living cooperatively.” Our large common house and pedestrian center are bordered by organic fields, gardens, and mature tree crops. New residents develop their own house design and personal landscape. Most recent new homes include photovoltaic electricity, radiant floor heat, waterless toilets, and modular construction. Alchemy Farm occupies 16 acres of fields, gardens, play areas, and woodlands and is bordered by forested conservation land with a large lake. One-third of the land contains 13 private homesites in two clusters, and two-thirds is shared common land, common house, and social areas. Our cohousing community is in the large community of Cape Cod, with nearby beaches, historic seaside towns, and the active scientific and cultural community of Woods Hole.
