Coho Ecovillage is a 34-unit cohousing community, a mile and a half from downtown Corvallis, and close to public transportation and numerous bike and walking paths. Clustered on 6.8 acres and surrounded by trees and meadows, the units are a mix of flats and townhouses, all designed to support friendly interactions between neighbors. A large common house with a unique solar art installation is the gathering place for meetings, vegetarian meals, and recreational activities.
Members of Coho Ecovillage are committed to living lightly on the land, embracing diversity and sharing with one another in mutual trust, respect, and support. All learn to listen carefully, use nonviolent communication, and make decisions by consensus.
We moved in to our community beginning October 2007, and we've been busily settling in, doing landscaping, building compost piles, planting gardens and an orchard, and enjoying getting to know each other better.
Our residents range in age from infants to grandparents--currently there are 59 adults and 18 children at CoHo. We are a mix of income levels, abilities, and family composition. Twenty-six of our 34 townhouses and flats are handicap visitable, and all downstairs flats meet ADA-accessibility standards.
If you are interested, visit our website or give us a call. We would love to hear from you.
