Our Vision

Our vision is to establish an Intentional Cohousing Community

We intend to develop and foster a living environment in which members have their own individual living space and where there is communal space for the sharing of cooking, eating, gardening, meeting, relaxing and having fun together, as well as sharing with the wider community in a variety of ways.

We will use clear decision making and conflict resolution guidelines that promote tolerance, safety, respect, trust, co-operation, good communication and social cohesion.

We intend to create a space which will provide opportunities for the sharing of resources, work, mutual care, creativity, leisure and recreation and the promotion and development of abilities and strengths.

We intend to refurbish and build, and subsequently to use resources, in as ecologically sustainable way as possible.

We intend to create a community which is a model for other cohousing groups and to engage with the wider community in promoting ideas of community and sustainability.

We intend to grow plants for food and for decoration, caring for and sustainably managing the trees and the natural environment.

We intend to have a lot of fun, and to enjoy, learn from and share in the cooking of those who can cook, the music of those whose life it is, and the expertise and skills of members in a variety of fields.
