Service and Resilient Living
Our outlook and values are pragmatic and centered on making life easier and more doable for our housemates by sharing the work of the home together with a permaculture/eccoResiliency focus. The central purpose of our community is derived from shared values of generosity toward co-living members, the earth and the wider community, a sense of service both to the home we inhabit and the members we live with, and a strong central work ethic both in our own lives and in service of the home, earth and community with which we live in partnership.
