The Chicago Collective
Chicago, Illinois, Ravenswood,
Cooperative housing for eco-conscious folks
We are a cooperative rooted in yoga and meditation traditions living lightly on the Earth. We strive for a carefree, car-free life based on healthy communication, organic communal meals
(some f2f, some on-the-go) and personal growth.
Our co-op is in the Ravenswood neighborhood just a few blocks from the CTA Brown Line, the Ravenswood Art Corridor and two parks.
If you're curious, drop us a line to get the conversation started. Tell us a little about yourself and we'll get back to you shortly.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
