Elderberry is a cohousing community for individuals and couples who wish to live in an energy-efficient home in a beautiful, rural setting, and to support and care for one another as we grow older. Our vision is to create a thriving community where members work together on activities of interest (farming, gardening, food preservation, cooking, crafts, etc) and continue to contribute to one another and to our wider community/world as long as they are able.

Only 5 lots left. 12 lots sold. 2 homes complete.

Elderberry owns two 10-acre parcels of land. One parcel, a lovely old farmstead with log house and outbuildings, will be the site for homes, pastures, common house and other community activities. The other parcel, owned jointly with adjacent Potluck Community Farm (an intentional community formed in 1990), is reachable by trail and provides a secluded and beautiful vista and the potential for additional pasture or woodlot.

Elderberry is for those who want to live in the country but have the advantages of a village: a close community, opportunities to play, eat and work together, and support and care as we grow older. The view from homes and the common house is distinctly rural – rolling hills and fields, pastures and pastured animals, gardens, barns, a restored farmhouse, hundred-year-old trees and abundant wildlife. It is a quiet, tranquil place where the starry sky is unaffected by city lights.

The homes at Elderberry will be small (1200 sq ft max). They will be duplexes and quadraplexes in order to preserve land, increase energy efficiency and encourage interaction among members. Members may design and build their own home or may choose from an existing design.

Elderberry welcomes visits from those who may be interested in living with us. We invite you to explore our website or contact us to learn more about our lovely country community.
