We are the members of a multigenerational cohousing community on Tucson's west side adjacent to the Tucson Mountain foothills who share a common vision of living together in community in a manner that respects the beautiful and fragile Sonoran Desert in which we live.
We are a child-friendly community with indoor and outdoor children's play areas and a swimming pool. Our community's interior spaces are pedestrian-only and safe for children.
We are a self-managed community. We work, play, and celebrate together; volunteer to serve on committees, task forces, and perform necessary tasks; meet regularly as a community; and make decisions by consensus.
We are an environmentally designed community featuring: adobe block homes with passive solar orientation, rooftop passive solar hot water heaters, a wetlands wastewater treatment system that recycles the water coming from our homes and provides underground irrigation inside our community, water cisterns, a permaculture interior design with citrus and pomegranate trees, a community garden, a water permeable parking lot, and an environmentally-friendly road. About half of our homeowners have installed rooftop photovoltaic solar panels and we will soon be installing rooftop panels on our common house.
We are a lush desert oasis surrounded by mountains only 12 minutes away from downtown Tucson and the University of Arizona.
