About the Community

Purpose.

We are forming a community home of cultural creatives & social change agents who seek to embody communication technology, create a home as a sanctuary, and support each other in making more impact in the world.

Community Vision.

We are interested in building our skills as humans together to help us serve in a larger capacity in the world – and have fun doing it! We value skillful interpersonal communication both as housemates, and as a pivotal tool for our times in the community at large.

We look to foster a culture of warmth and generosity. We view the home as a place to rest and replenish, and to convene with people who strive to make positive change.

We are thoughtful about our choices and their impacts, striving to be healthy inside and out, for our bodies, our communities and the planet. We all have a spark to contribute toward something bigger. We strive for diversity of age, race, religion and personal preferences even while we celebrate our commonalities.

Who We Are.

We envision bringing together people who are grounded & practical, warm and open-hearted. That might include hikers, meditators, dancers, bicycle commuters, gardeners, kayakers, adventurers, and more. We imagine making things on our own and fermenting some of our own foods; allowing ourselves to go deep in our projects, while still remaining connected with each other.   *We are a nascent community, looking for additional founding residents to co-create this community with us.
