There are no units available at this time.
People interested in purchasing an available unit at Columbia Ecovillage are encouraged to begin the get-acquainted process prior to submitting a written offer to purchase. A similar process is used for a smaller number of units which are rentals. The process includes attending a monthly “village meeting” or a meeting of a smaller group, and sharing a meal with us at one of our scheduled dinners. Potential new members are typically assigned a buddy to help answer their questions.
Some useful questions to ask oneself when considering living in a community such as CEV:
What excites me about living in a cohousing community?
What draws me to live in an ecovillage?
How do I feel about making many major and minor decisions with other people?
How much time do I have beyond my work, family and hobbies?
What would I like to learn while living in cohousing?
What skills, strengths, hobbies and talents would I want to share with others?
What balance between privacy and community is right for me?
What might be the most challenging thing for me in living in this community?
