Intergenerational Households

At Pringle Creek Community, we think resourcefulness is a good thing. We pay careful attention to how the Earth's precious resources are being used, and see if there are even more ways to leave a lighter footprint in the world. With the stigma of adult millennials moving in with parents decreasing, and the realization that this is a strategic move rather than a lazy one, more and more people are beginning to see that living in an intergenerational household has a lot of benefits. You get the chance to strengthen family ties, perhaps further a career, and save some ... Read more

Green Building Mandates

We've been doing green building for quite some time, and we're glad to hear that Governor Kate Brown is also supporting it through green building mandates. We believe in building a community that consciously takes steps to leave a lighter footprint on the earth. Our homes are built with healthy materials that have energy efficiency in mind. Whether it's building a home on the geothermal loop or installing solar panels to generate energy, our mission is to live healthy and live better together. We also have an electric station for cars to power up on cleaner fuel. With the ... Read more

It's also always fun to share a meal together. Food is a ... Read more

Super Girl Scouts

Girl Scouts go way back. Do you remember being a Brownie or perhaps your mom has a sash with various patches sewn on that show she achieved some awesome skills in self-sufficiency and sustainability? Did you have a heated debate on how Tagalongs were the best cookie, hands-down? Perhaps you remember singing, "Make new friends but keep the old, one is silver and the others gold." Experiencing the great outdoors, having cook-outs, and telling spooky stories by the campfire are all activities that a lot of Girl Scouts and Girl Scout families remember fondly, and are still being celebrated ...

Pringle Creek Critter Time

At Pringle Creek Community, we love wildlife and take measures to make sure it thrives. For instance, we work with the Department of Fish and Wildlife to make sure the creek is managed in a way that allows for wild salmon to flourish. We manage the land sustainably, and that means, when you walk by the blackberries, you can pluck them off the vine without any worries, although you might find some mineral rich dirt on them from time to time. We also love watching the deer and turkeys that have been frequenting our community. We've got bird boxes, ... Read more
