We have weekly Introductory meetings on Zoom. You may drop in any Thursday 5:30-6:30 p.m. to learn more about us and tell us who you are. We look forward to meeting you.
We are a forming community with a core group of dedicated and diverse members who work together to create our shared vision. We are creating a community where people of diverse backgrounds care about each other and respect each other. A community where each individual has the ability to participate and to give back. A community where there is plenty of opportunity to help by contributing to work parties, watching children, bringing food, building play equipment, pulling weeds or harvesting tomatoes from the community garden. A community that can entertain itself with music, games, book clubs and community meals.
We know that together we can be an example for how people can live safely together in harmony and peace and respect each others differences.
We respect the Earth by being responsible with resources, whether that is building materials or recycling our not-needed items.
Our community garden is established and thriving already. We have an organic orchard with fruit trees and berries, and an organic vegetable garden in which we share the work and the produce. We take excess to our local food bank and will be using our produce in our community meals.
We have a professional team helping us: Grace Kim from Schemata Workshop in Seattle is our architect, and Karen Gimnig is our Process Consultant. Our builder is Green Canopy Node, with a mission for sustainable building.
We anticipate having a site plan soon which will tell us the location of roads, utilities and the homes. We plan to have 32 homes. Our community will be individual cottages, where each home owner owns the lot their cottage is built on and shares the Common House, the gardens, the common land, and parking (there will be a Homeowner Association and monthly dues for the upkeep of these).
We have floor plans for three sizes of cottages. All three are about the same on the ground floor: 800 square feet, a kitchen, dining, living, bedroom, bathroom and laundry. The medium and large homes have an upstairs with one bathroom and one or two bedrooms. All will have comfortable covered porches for sitting and visiting with neighbors. There will be group parking, and walking paths through the community to encourage visiting and childrens play areas.
Our Common House will have a dual purpose room. During the day time, Monday through Friday it is a work-from-home space. Evenings and weekends it is a craft room.
All homes will be solar power ready. All will be built to the best standards for energy efficiency that we can manage.
Pets are allowed, as long as they fit within the guidance of our Pet Policy.
If this vision seems to fit with how you see yourself living your life now and in the future, we would love to meet you. We have weekly Introductory meetings on Zoom. You may drop in any Thursday 5:30-6:30 p.m. Pacific time to learn more about us and tell us who you are. We look forward to meeting you.
