Ponderosa Cohousing

We are a forming cohousing group in Vernon, British Columbia.

We are a cohousing group in Vernon, British Columbia, looking to create a community that prioritizes social connection, sustainable lifestyles, and inclusiveness.

Our aim is to design and develop a housing complex composed of affordable, quality-built homes while creating a community that balances shared spaces and amenities with individual ownership of units and privacy.

Cohousing communities are collaborative neighbourhoods created with a little ingenuity. Complexes are designed and managed through a participatory process with consensus decision making by all residents. They consist of privately owned homes complemented by common areas designed for everyday use (e.g., a common house, community kitchen and garden, workshops, children’s play area). Cohousing neighbourhoods bring together the value of privacy with the benefits of community to stand as an innovative and sustainable answer to today’s environmental and social issues.

A community for everyone

Cohousing is not social housing; it is not co-op housing. It is planned, intentional community.

We are in the forming stage and looking for members. We welcome all inquiries.
