Cobb Hill Cohousing

Cobb Hill, in Hartland, Vermont, is located in the Upper Valley region of the Connecticut River valley. It was formed through the purchase of two adjoining former dairy farms creating a total of 270 acres. The land includes barns and a silo, 15 acres of prime agricultural land, high pastures, a large regenerating forest (including a 1000-maple sugarbush), and a small stream and pond. Today the community is home to about 50 people in 28 homes designed for sustainability, plus about 50 cows and 50 chickens. There are multiple non-profits and small enterprises on the land including cheese making, maple syrup, raising sheep, beekeeping, and more. The guiding principles of Cobb Hill are: unity, community, equity, sustainability and synergy.

Living Tree Alliance

Living Tree Cohousing is a 91-acre kibbutz-inspired village in the heart of the Mad River Valley, Vermont. Living Tree Alliance is a multigenerational, ecologically driven community of individuals and families actively building a meaningful, integrated life experience based on authenticity, connection to land, spirituality, resiliency, communication and collaboration. Together they are redefining community, regenerating land, and revitalizing culture. Their approved plan is for seven residences, a common house, and workshop on three of the 91 acres of land. The village design is compact, accessible and ecologically oriented, balancing the dynamics of community engagement with the needs for personal space.

Rah Rah Village

This growing ecovillage and intentional community is located on 23 acres in beautiful southern Vermont since 2001. Their values are respect for nature and each other. “For us, living as stewards in Nature is important, respecting one another, and animals and all life, being respectful to the land and environment that sustains us, living with no oppressive debt, and being honest and credible-not being hypocrites, being of service to others, being empathetic to others’ lived experiences. We value work ethic, but we don’t expect an unreasonable amount of labor – just honest effort and showing up when it’s time.” Rah Rah is welcoming new members at this time, especially young people and families with children.
