Non-profit group pursuing the development of an environmentally friendly neighborhood that fosters sharing and community in Richmond. We are currently in discussions with an urban developer about new construction that meets or exceeds EarthCraft standards.


Our Mission

The mission of Richmond Cohousing is to create an intentional intergenerational community of households who are good neighbors and conscientious environmental stewards.

Living in close proximity and sharing resources and a community garden, we increase quality of life by caring for one another, celebrating together, reducing consumption, decreasing our impact on the environment, and offering Richmond a new model of vibrant neighborhood design.
