Visit and ask questions at our open houses, on the phone, and over the course of four or more meetings: whatever it takes for you to decide if Stone’s Throw and its members are a good fit for you. Joining involves a $5,000 minimum capital contribution, which will apply to your lot purchase, and monthly dues of $10 – 25.
We are committed to designing our neighborhood together, to implementing permaculture principles on the land, and to welcoming diversity in our community.
We are creating a rural neighborhood that promotes social interaction and sharing resources, within walking distance of the center of Viroqua, Wisconsin.
Viroqua is the Vernon County seat, a progressive town of 5,000 with a thriving food co-op in one of the most concentrated areas of organic farms in the country. Situated in the heart of the beautiful Driftless region of SW Wisconsin: steep ridges and fertile valleys; cold, clean spring creeks; abundant wildlife; and tall bluffs overlooking the Mississippi river.
