In 2006 and 2007, our community hosted 16 Welcome Weekends to meet and greet folks who were interested in becoming our neighbors. The model was very successful in helping folks decide if cohousing was right for them. The action-packed weekend format also made it easy for out-of-town visitors to complete some of our membership steps that involved face-to-face time with the community.
In 2010, Welcome Weekend #17 was held and in 2011, it’s time for Welcome Weekend #18.
The focus is a bit broader this time. While we are eager to welcome new neighbors who would purchase one of our three available units, we are also seeking to deepen our connections with neighbors in Corvallis. We advocate a community-based model for sustainability and that focus is growing stronger as we look ahead to cultural and economic changes.

Building Connections Through Community
At times you may find your values and lifestyle don’t
“line up” with mainstream ways of living.
Maybe it’s time to check out cohousing.
If you’re interested in creating connections
with an intergenerational community that cultivates
both social and ecological sustainability,
visit us for Welcome Weekend and see how life changes when you…
- know your 33 closest neighbors (and their kids and their pets)
- work on collaborative teams and make decisions by consensus
- share abundance with homegrown food and music and celebrations
- work together on a long-range plan for the community
- give and receive support in living green
