Community image

Cully Grove is a 16-home multi-generational, solar-powered garden community on nearly 2 acres in the Cully Neighborhood of NE Portland. It has been designed to function as an urban farm, complete with a large garden area, fruit trees, community gathering spaces inside and out, and a common house with kitchen, guest rooms, and outdoor food processing sink. There are play areas for kids and chill-out spots for adults.

Completed in 2013, Cully Grove is newly built, featuring well-insulated units with both photo-voltaic and solar thermal systems, high efficiency heat and appliances, advanced framing techniques, and non-toxic finishes. Units have three or four bedrooms, and vary from 1450 to 1800 square feet.

Our Vision:
Cully Grove is a co-operatively governed community where a multi-generational group of friends lives simply, and where design, decision-making and day-to-day actions reflect shared values.

Our Values:
We commit to:
• Respect and care for other people and the earth.
• Appreciate the value each person brings to the community.
• Cooperate in decision-making and conflict resolution.
• Respect privacy, individual choice and diversity of opinion.
• Encourage personal and community growth and service.
• Connect to the larger community of neighborhood, city and region.

Our Mission:
To foster these values, we will:
• Support one another in simplifying our lives, so we can focus on what we value most and consume fewer resources.
• Participate in nurturing and mentoring children, helping them become active members of the community.
• Encourage spontaneous fun and establish traditions that create a sense of place and community.
• Share materials, knowledge and skills, to benefit one another and the community.
• Create opportunities to learn from and with one another.
• Ensure residents’ privacy and autonomy in their homes and yards.
• Share equitably in maintaining and managing common buildings and grounds.
• Ensure that our processes of governance leave ample time for members to engage with family and friends, and in broader civic life.
• Welcome visits from others interested in learning from our experience.
