Each member of the community cooks one vegetarian dinner per week, and we rotate shopping and household chores. We buy our groceries primarily from local or organic suppliers. Our shared meals are vegetarian, although individuals do on occasion eat meat within the house as a separate event from our shared dinners. We have hosted a variety of community gatherings including study groups, potlucks, music nights and occasional dance parties (hallowe’en, new years).
Our large, character home has plenty of common spaces, hardwood floors, a fireplace, a cold cellar, and a great view of the mountains and city. We have created a front yard that contains many plants which are indigenous to the Cascadia Bioregion and large trees that shield our home from the road. The backyard has our vegetable/herb gardens, patio, shed/garage, and compost system. We have excellent, quick bus service to UBC and downtown, as well as secure indoor bicycle storage.
