Located in upper Northwest, Washington, DC,  Takoma Village Cohousing is home 
to 43 households of all sizes, shapes, and colors.  We are a stone's throw from 
Takoma Park, MD known as The Berkeley of the East and just minutes by metro 
from the Capitol.  We're 1.5 blocks from the Red Line metro at Takoma.

We are an urban in-fill site.  We're GREEN.  We're sustainable.  We're looking 
for a new household to join our 65 adults 20+ children, 5 dogs and waaaaay too 
many cats.  Could this be you? 

We have one sit down dinner per week and as many BBQ's, birthdays, 
anniversaries, graduations, etc. that we can fit in a year as possible.  Every 
holiday is a legitimate excuse to break out the beer, the BBQ (in warm weather) 
and the snacks.  We watch major sports events, movies, and political debates.  

We also work together with every adult expected to contribute to the health and 
well-being of the community by volunteering for some aspect of workshare.  You 
can read a lot more about the social aspects of our community on our website:
