The Community – Greening Life
Greening Life Mission Statement: Balance in life, stewardship of the land, emphasis on simplicity and cooperation with one another and growth in spirit. We govern by consensus.
Greening is a non-profit corporation founded in 1973 to create a place where residents can share the joys and responsibilities of intentional community living. A core of 8 individually owned homes on approximately 1½ acre lots is surrounded by pastures, fields and woodlands. The farm is 135 acres with rolling hills, woodlands, pastures and hay fields. Much of the farm is in a conservation easement protecting the land from further development. We have developed roads, hiking trails and outdoor community spaces. The farm buildings include a 100-year old bank barn. We have extensive farming equipment to support upkeep of our roads and green areas including a 2-acre fenced vegetable garden.
Membership – We very strongly hope that all homeowners at Greening Life become members. Membership is a commitment to subscribe to the bylaws and respect our fundamental values. Members share in the upkeep of the property to promote responsibility and cooperation within the community.
Governance – Greening is governed under its Bylaws and by consensus decisions of the members.
