Our house is a cooperative that is part of Student Housing Organization (12 houses total). We are a vegetarian house, full of creativity, passion, and fire. We have a beautiful garden that we grow every summer, full of organic goodies. There are many activities that most members participate in together. These include camping, potlucks, initiatives, Blissfest, and many other things. Our house is full of love and happiness.

Visitor Process: Visitors for a tour or shared dinner are welcome any time. Visitors wishing to stay overnight or wishing to be in the house unaccompanied need to contact the community at least one week in advance (preferably two) and ask if they may stay as a guest. Overnight guests are limited to a few nights. If the house cannot be reached directly, the co-op's business office can very helpful in opening lines of communication.
