Paradise Found

We are thrilled to be featured in Marie Claire's January 2017 issue, where Kiera Carter, writes about all the thoughts that go through a person's head when they are considering moving to a more sustainable community. Carter wonders whether sustainable communities will have a "potentially creepy commune vibe," and asks the question, "Can an office-going, lipstick-wearing woman actually fit in?" Our residents come from all walks of life, and they work for the city, the hospital, a university, and some are retired while others are starting families.
