Seeking Rural/Ag Cohousing Communities

I am looking to identify and connect with cohousing communities that
identify themselves as rural, but additionally those who include
agricultural activities as an important part of their identity. My hope is
to create a network within the cohousing movement where members of such
rural coho communities can share their experiences with each other, support
one another, as well as to mentor those who are interested in using the
cohousing model in such a setting in the future.

 For example my community, Hundredfold Farm, is located in very rural
south-central PA. We collectively own 80 acres of which three acres has
been set aside for our housing cluster, 50-ish acres are forested and the
remaining acreage is used for commercial agricultural production.

 Additionally, I intend to host a gathering during the 2015 National
Cohousing Conference in Durham, NC where rural/ag coho folk will have an
opportunity to make new friends, share of our ourselves and celebrate.  Support
and assistance with this endeavor would be welcomed and appreciated. In the
meantime, you can keep up on conference developments at

I would like to begin our conversation soon, so please raise your hand
identifying yourself as a rural/ag cohousing community by responding to
this post and/or emailing me at president [at]
