The Bohn Farm Cohousing project is a new vision for housing. It combines all the key aspects of sustainable living in a single project. Housing and agriculture are brought together through a 2 acre on-site farm that is integrated with the landscape concept and is in larger farm areas, orchards, roof top gardens and edible plants throughout. There is a CSA (community supported agriculture) for all residents. The project includes a diversity of housing types from smaller multi-family units to large attached single-family units as well as six - 1000 sf commercial spaces.
A large commons house is located centrally with a commercial kitchen, music studio, apartment for a resident farmer, yoga space and library. The location is nestled in a historic neighborhood near downtown with easy walkability. A zero energy community is being sought with a broad range of sustainable techniques in water, energy, and materials designed with permaculture concepts. The project has completed schematic design and is scheduled to start construction in 2019.
