Port Townsend EcoVillage

Port Townsend, Washington

Do you want to walk, bike or bus to beaches, a food co-op, and the heart of a cultural and historic small town? Do you want to live in a community of people dedicated to living in harmony with each other and with the earth?
We are a small-town, multigenerational EcoVillage on 7.5 acres in Port Townsend, a historic seaport of 10,000 residents. We have a core group of a 27 active participants: 26 people, including 6 children, live on site now, with another member nearby. At 12 years old, we are flourishing and still growing.
One of the twelve 4,000 square-foot lots for homebuilding is currently available for sale, and rental units occasionally open up for new occupants. Also available are sites for 3 tiny houses. See our website for details.
Residents share ample common gardens, fields, woods, a large 3,600 square foot shop/art center. We have extensive food gardens, and are currently designing a common house we hope to complete in 2018. We plan to use 3 acres of our best land to grow food using permaculture and organic methods, and to develop additional cottage industries. We embrace and seek diversity and especially welcome families with children.
Structured as a Home Owners Association, our members own their own lots and the homes they build on them, and thus have access to mortgages, federal tax deductions and tax credits for renewable energy and energy efficiency initiatives. HOA members collectively own a large 2-kitchen home with 4 bedrooms, currently all rented. In 2017 one lot is being developed with a duplex for affordable family rental housing, and infrastructure has been placed on another lot to accomodate 3 tiny homes (up to 400 square feet, on a foundation).
The one available lot costs $110,000. This does not include the cost of a dwelling, but does include one twelfth ownership of common land and buildings.
We offer tours once a month prior to our monthly community meeting on the second Sunday of each month, and can sometimes arrange for a tour on another date. Call us to arrange a visit!
