Description:

Who We Are:
A core group of families working together to create a community that is inclusive to all, family-centric, and emphasizes resilience and self-sustainability in an increasingly uncertain world.

Vision:
Gather a group of families with diverse backgrounds to create a community built on principles of cohousing and permaculture.

It will be in a rural area in SW Washington near the Vancouver/Portland area. We intend to have substantial shared resources in the form of the usual common house, tools, and meals, along with a working permaculture/restorative agriculture farm. Underneath our plans runs the looming presence of climate change, which will factor into our designs and choices to help us create a community of resilient, adaptable people. We are actively looking for ways to make sure there are spaces in our community that are accessible and affordable across a range of incomes.

Status:
– Seeking additional core group members willing to dedicate time, energy, and resources to implementing this vision.
– Scheduling times to meet prospective members and provide more information about cohousing in general and our vision in particular
– Determining financing method and legal structure
– Seeking land to purchase starting in March 2020

What We’re Like:
So far, we are a group of parents with young children, who are keenly feeling the effects of our fractured neighborhoods and sparse communities. We’ve talked about cohousing for many years without having a name for what we wanted, and now see a path forward to build it. We believe in raising children to be full humans, confident in their abilities and giving them space to challenge themselves. We wish to prioritize other families in our membership, but fully expect those families to take many forms including single parents, LGBT+ parents, and multi-generational families. It is also important to us that our community is explicitly anti-racist and racially diverse.
