To the friends of Wild Iris Ranch, Sadly, the intentional community that was forming on the Sonoma Coast known as Wild Iris Ranch has ended. The members of the group decided to discontinue our exclusive option to buy on the land in Jenner and to allow the owner to put the property up for sale. We had extended deadlines a number of times to allow us time to recruit and decided that the time had come to let this particular vision go. Though the land is beautiful, it proved difficult to attract enough people able and willing to financially commit to building and living in that rural setting. However, several of us are still committed to pursuing community living. We are open to broader options, especially those involving less expensive rural or semi-rural land with existing structures closer to the Bay Area. Ideal locations would be including and south of Sebastopol, west of Highway 101 to the coast and north of the Bay Area; Petaluma, Bloomfield, Two Rock and Novato areas preferred. Perhaps a ranch or contiguous lots can be found. The model we envision incorporates co-housing and shared housing for a group of 6-12 individuals and families. If it turns out that enough people are still interested in pursuing the dream at Jenner, then we can still receive a discounted purchase price (provided, of course, that it hasn't sold already). In any case, we have a work party day scheduled on the Ranch for Sat, July 8th. It's still there and beautiful and we can help the owner with some chores and enjoy the space. If you are interested in participating in a future community or know of property available, please let us know.
