We are a cohousing community with the mission of providing its members with housing and community facilities, cultivating community resilience, collectively producing organic food and herbs for our own consumption, and helping other communities do the same.
Come check us out!
Our membership process begins with an application and interview, followed by an invitation to rent one of the available spaces on a month-to-month basis for 2-3 months prior to purchasing one of our available spaces. We're excited to get to know you and support you in getting to know us, the land, and this special part of Vermont.
During the trial membership, you'll participate in the processes of being at Dancing Catamount from our collaborative meeting space, to growing food and maintaining the land, to our community meals and work parties. The time commitment averages out to one to two hours a day so you'll have plenty of time for work and play.
Throughout your trial membership, we'll have plenty of time to go over the details of joining as a full member including the legal documents.
Buying into cohousing at Dancing Catamount
During your trial membership, you can make an offer to purchase an available dwelling using a purchase and sales agreement. If your offer is accepted, and once the sale is complete, you'll become a full member of the cohousing homestead with full rights of participation in decision-making including the option to propose new projects and directions.
Friends of Dancing Catamount
Ad hoc participation
Many people have fallen in love with Dancing Catamount and want to stay connected with this place and its people through coming to our occasional work parties like our annual cider pressing extravaganza! We welcome one and all who feel that special bond with what we are up to on this amazing piece of land.
There is no cost to participating as a Friend and you get to receive food, herbs and flower when we have extra, which we often do:)
To become a Friend simply join our newsletter list. We'll keep you posted on opportunities to join in the community fun.
