The Regenerative Co-op of Pomona, also called Regen, is a vibrant intentional community located in a quiet suburb east of Los Angeles. Founded by graduates of Cal Poly Pomona’s Center for Regenerative Studies in 1999, we strive to incorporate sustainable and regenerative principles in our urban/suburban environment.
The food in the co-op is vegetarian, although the co-op includes residents who are non-vegetarian away from home. Community meals occur five nights a week and always include a vegan option. Each member of the community is expected to contribute one dinner dish per week.
We use solar power, maintain a gray water system, edible landscaping, and organic gardening. Community decisions use a consensus model in monthly community meetings.
We organize a Sustainability Seminar every Spring with workshops and speakers on topics from solar power to gardening and sustainable living (topics change each year). In addition we host various workshops of social and environmental interests throughout the year.
Currently we can accommodate up to 35 residents distributed between five homes. Some of us are very active in local peace and environmental activism; others have never been to a protest. We have had residents from as far away as Germany and Siberia and as local as Orange County. We are organizers, teachers, technicians, students, business people, philosophers, artist, and many other things. We often have openings. If you are interested in applying, please contact us.
We are within biking distance to several colleges and universities, including Cal Poly Pomona, Western Medical School, the Claremont Colleges (Pitzer, Harvey Mudd, Claremont McKenna, Scripps, Pomona College, Claremont Graduate University, and Claremont School of Theology), and University of La Verne. Also nearby is Mount San Antonio College.
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
