  • Description

    Description

    We are an intentional community and co-housing project located south of Powell River, BC. We have been working together since 2015 and on our site since the beginning of 2019. We are a multi-generational group that lives together on this beautiful 40 acre property. There is a beautiful year round river, with swimming holes along one border, 2 creeks, & 3 ponds.

    This summer we will be working on some natural building projects - new homes, outdoor kitchen, sauna, etc. There is also work to be done in the developing garden and orchard and maintaining our forest trails. We also have chickens & ducks.

    The community uses sociocracy for our governance and organization. We hold regular meetings (usually once per week), which you would be welcome to sit in on.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Learning about group communication and decision making - our governance model of Sociocracy has been used here for 4 years and is a great model to witness and learn from. You may attend meetings and see it in action first hand.

    We live in a rural setting about 20 minutes away from the city of Powell River. We have beautiful grounds, with lots of water around for hot days! There is a gorgeous beach about a 10 minute walk away (along a forest path).

    English is our spoken language, and there are folks here who speak French & Spanish.
