Cohousing Community

~ Creating an old-fashioned neighborhood in a new way ~  

Our Story

We are a group of families, couples and singles who have created a 36-home cohousing neighborhood in Paso Robles on the Central Coast of California.  We found our beautiful land in October 1999. Construction started in 2003 with most of us moving in during 2004. During the summer of 2005, our final home was completed. 

Our Vision

We are a community that fosters enriching relationships with one another, nature, and the larger community.

Our Values

It is our intention to:

  • Celebrate, accept, and welcome diversity,
  • Communicate with integrity, respect, and trust.
  • Support, encourage, and be compassionate with each other.
  • Live in loving connection while respecting personal space.
  • Create opportunities for fun, laughter, play, celebrations, and rituals.
  • Contribute time and talents within our community and beyond.
  • Respect the environment by being sensitive to the interconnections between all things.
