High St Co-op

The Campus of Love is a duplex home owned cooperatively by four people, two from each side of the two-family house. Three people live in one half of the house, four to five people live in the other half, and three ducks and five chickens ramble and roost in the back.

Here in the west wing, we sing sweet songs, have regular house meetings, have rotating cook nights and shared food, hostĀ potlucks, warm up by the woodstove, plant garlic in the fall, and bike year-round. We are committed to communicating openly, supporting each other, sharing resources, reducing consumption, and building community.
