Eno Commons' vision is to have a sense of community, an extended family
atmosphere, safety for children and adults, collaborative decision making
(we use a consensus model) and valuing diversity. We plan on sharing lots of
fun meals together (we already have, even without a Commons House) and
establishing a supportive atmosphere.

We hope you will consider joining us, or at least check us out and see if
you like.
