Neighborhoods are among the most promising solutions to many of today's most challenging social and environmental concerns.
We are a family-friendly cohousing community in Peterborough, New Hampshire. We are families, couples, and individuals with a mission "to work together to nurture and support each other and the land on which we live."
Our condo homes are 'green'—environmentally designed, quality built, and super energy-efficient. The homes are clustered along pedestrian ways adjacent to our farm fields and the Nubanusit Brook.
We share 113 acres of farm land, fields and woodlands with trails, a pond, and nearly a mile of riverfront. We contract with a farmer, who operates a CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) farm on our land.
We hope you'll visit and get to know us.
