We are a small-town, multigenerational EcoVillage on 7.5 acres in Port Townsend, WA, a historic seaport of 10,000 residents. We have a core group of a 41 active participants: 30 adults and 11 children, most of whom live on site. Currently (August 2021) we are full but in 2022, we expect a duplex building to be available for sale, and a rental unit with 2 bedrooms, in a duplex, to be available. Families are especially encouraged to inquire.
Residents share ample common gardens, fields, woods, a large 3,600 square foot shop/art/recreation center. We have extensive food gardens, and are currently building our Common House. We use some of our best land to grow food using permaculture, restorative agriculture principles, and other organic methods, and may develop cottage industries. We embrace and seek diversity and are especially glad for the broad range of ages present among us.
We share meals and celebrate solstice and other diverse earth and life cycle days together. Fun and connecting activities happen often – recent examples: crafting weekend, hula-hooping, storytelling gathering, gifting circle, food preserving, as well as ongoing garden and construction work.
Structured as a Home Owners Association, most of our members own their own lots and the homes they build on them, and thus have access to mortgages, federal tax deductions and tax credits for renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives. HOA members collectively own a large 2-kitchen home with 4 bedrooms and one of the lots on which there are 3 tiny houses, one of which is still under construction.
We offer tours once a month prior to our monthly community meeting on the second Sunday of each month, and can sometimes arrange for a tour on another date. Email us to arrange a visit!
