We value curiosity, analysis, questioning, and engagement. This is not a house for by-standers!
Our greater goal is to create, maintain and diversify the commons. Part of this is experimenting with and learning how to collectively ‘govern’ the commons.

Our theory of change: By living together we maximize financial and temporal efficiency and we can put that extra time and money into projects that support the commons and other social endeavors.
