Welcome!

Hi there! We're a newly formed group of friends who are building an intentional community around vegetarian food. We are looking for more wonderful people to help us fill our new home with joy and delicious food.

Rent will be $927/month plus utilities and some shared grocery money. During the first week we will determine, as a collective, what will be on the shared shopping list.
