Join us for a tour of ecological living options in Franklin County.  We'll
visit homes and farms that have tested different models for community
living, such as community land trusts, coops, cohousing, and more.  Meet
other people interested in community building and see new places!

Throughout the Pioneer Valley there are numerous models for how to create
communities that balance affordability, ecology and community connections.  No
one model has all the answers – but they all offer tremendous insights and
for some, may be the answer you are looking for today.

This tour focuses on concrete examples of sustainable community living right
here in Franklin County.  Tour stops will include:

   - Cooperatively owned homes (Pioneer Coop of Franklin County –
   - Homes on community land trust land (Valley Community Land Trust –
   - A small cohousing development (Salmon Falls Land Association –
   Shelburne Falls);
   - A conserved working farm (Seeds of Solidarity Farm – Orange); and
   - “In-town” green housing (Zero Energy private residence – Montague)

The goal of this tour is to connect people with organizations and
individuals working towards sustainable community living, offer real-world
examples of community models, and describe how these models work.  We hope
you can come!
