Our Vision Statement

We strive to create a village that models a better way to live.   We envision a vibrant, interconnected community filled with the spirit of mutual care, cooperative village management, and filled with lots of celebration of the seasons and our own personal milestones.   We seek to embrace the Greek and Mediterranean lifestyle with lingering coffees that foster deep connection and with laughter.  We seek to build a supportive village network that spans diverse individuals, generations and cultures and buoys each of us with mutual care, personal growth, and fun times.

The sustainable practice of cooking and eating together many times a week using locally-grown ingredients is central to our social fabric and supports this breathtaking agricultural region that bring us together.  We seek to live a life awake to the climate change dangers around us, to prepare together, and to live a life that enhances and supports our natural surroundings.  

We seek to promote an active outdoors, environmentally conscious lifestyle.  We commit to the sustainable practice of using alternative energy use and water conservation through permaculture and water harvesting, seeking to live a higher quality and lower footprint life.  

We seek to contribute to our wider community Greek village neighbors wellbeing, and we celebrate, respect, and to learn from the Hellenic tradition and local village life around us.

Through transparent and inclusive decision-making processes, we utilize consensus and sociocracy to ensure that all community members have a say in how we live together, work together, and solve challenges collectively.
