Vision & Values

We are strengthened in our life together by visions and values for living in community. Expressing our visions and values guides us in the decisions we make and the time we spend together. Some are lived out every day in a variety of different ways. Some are goals that may take us a longer time to enact.

  1. We recognize that relationships are the core of our community and foster friendship and connection by creating traditions and opportunities for sharing and spontaneous fun.

  2. We participate in nurturing and mentoring children, including them as active members of the community.

  3. We celebrate diversity and value the input of each person, respecting their unique experience and wisdom.

  4. We value a life together expressed through an intergenerational, economically, racially and culturally diverse community.

  5. We seek to include and empower every member of the community through the sociocratic decision-making process.

  6. We maintain an atmosphere of trust and consideration, where all participants feel safe, respected, and heard.

  7. We value responsible stewardship, walking lightly on the land, and making day to day choices that support environmental sustainability.

  8. We grow, prepare, and share food together.

  9. We respect the balance between privacy and interconnection.

  10. We share the maintenance and management of buildings and grounds.

  11. We actively engage with each other by sharing our skills, resources and responsibilities.

  12. We actively engage and participate with the surrounding neighborhood and the broader community to nurture and sustain the common good.

  13. We intend to have a remarkably good time together!
