The Community

- We value diversity of age, religion, race, sexual orientation and background

- We are a new kind of neighborhood dedicates to living sustainably, mindful of our earth's finite natural resources

- We build caring relationships and joyful, creative lifestyles that honor the well-being of all.

Being chemical sensitive, I was happy to find a community where few, if any, toxic chemicals are used for lawns, common areas, and the community garden. My cottage was built using materials with low toxicity and high energy efficiency. The general mindset of members is to choose natural alternatives and focus on living healthy lifestyles, which is a good fit for me.

At Living Well Community we

share four core values:

Sustainability

We are committed to building with awareness of our impact on the planet.

 

Health & Wellness

Recognizing that health is our natural state, we encourage practices that create and support physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health.

 

Honoring the Sacred

We honor the sacred within and around us, and support all people in their individual spiritual growth and development.

 

Service to the Greater Good

Our main purpose is to be of service to ourselves and others. We live to bring joy, peace, love and justice to the world. Being aware of how our actions affect others, we participate in local outreach projects. Our community hopes to share what we're learning in ways that inspire others to create lifestyles that have reverence for the earth and compassion for all.
