Recently, an architect specializing in LEED commercial buildings from Prairie Architects, Inc, in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, visited us.

Jonathan and Lisa recently moved to Salem, Oregon, settling in at Pringle Creek Community.

Our latest build, the Net Zero house in John Muir Circle, is now truly a Net Zero home! SolarCity technicians installed 24 solar panels that will create an estimated 6,165 kwH of power annually.

To live in this home is certainly to live lightly! Each time you turn on the lights, the television, or use the refrigerator, you'll have the sun an your solar panels to thank, ...
Wow! Colleen, our Urban Farmer, harvested some beautiful peppers for the CSA this week. Her organic farming skills are really reaping amazing rewards. Our CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) provides fresh produce for shareholders every week (every other week from October through February) for 10 months of the year. Colleen grows the produce both inside our historic glasshouses and in our outside garden that are shared with community gardeners and residents.
This is a delicious time of year at Pringle Creek Community! The fruit in our shared orchard is ripe and ready to harvest for eating, jelly creation, or pie-making.
The fruit orchard is a delectable amenity and lovely addition to living here. Residents at Pringle Creek Community get alerts telling them to come on out, harvest, and enjoy the bounty. Sharing food with friends and neighbors is an excellent part of living in a community, an aspect of life neighbors enjoy regularly.
Change your life! Come live at Pringle Creek Community!
