We are Growing!
Meet our Members – come join us!
Hi, I’m Colleen. I grew up in Illinois along the bluffs of the Mississippi River and in the rolling hills of central Iowa. There’s nothing better than spending a day hiking along a mountain lake with spring wildflowers all around. I’ve always wanted to learn to play the piano. I love baking rhubarb pies. I wish someone could teach me how to make a major difference for the environment.
Alicia D. and Neva S.
Hi! I’m Alicia and this is my daughter, Neva. Originally from Iowa, I’ve been in Oregon since 1990 and in Portland almost that entire time. I love to ride my bicycle long distances, surround myself with beautiful things (art, music, or nature), and eat, drink, and be merry with friends. I am looking forward to more time to paint and I would love to have a mentor to teach me more about color, materials, and technique.
Neva is a Portland native whose interests are wide ranging from watching baseball, eating Fritos and listening to opera. She has a love for delicious food, the outdoors, excitement, and music and looks forward to hosting Friday night pizza and dance parties in the community room.
We both look forward to living in a community that learns and laughs together!
I have lived in the same house in Portland, Oregon since I was born. My perfect day is when it is sunny outside and I am hiking at Tryon Creek, creating clay pieces, and eating my favorite foods. My favorite hobby is working on my art. My top two favorite foods are mac & cheese and ice cream. I want to learn from an expert how to market my colorful art. I’m looking forward to community game nights and being with everyone.
Megan D. and Xavier
We are a mother-son team who are native to Portland, Oregon and currently residing in NE Portland.
Xavier is an awesome, friendly, and intelligent young man who is incredibly knowledgeable and talented when it comes to music, audio engineering and music production. He enjoys his free time as a part time Youtuber, practicing voice acting, playing bass and video games especially animal crossing and more recently contributing his perspective to community projects.
Adara M. (Abby, David, and Corwin)
A perfect day begins with a crossword puzzle in a quiet house, and ends with a good novel in bed. In between, I would walk in a beautiful place, preferably
I have taken a few baby steps into making inks from plants (oak galls, lichen, beets, flower petals), and I would love to have more time to devote to this.
I love all food. But really, I’m a sucker for a good bowl of homemade soup with crusty buttered sourdough.
Rick C., Lisa S., and Elijah
Rick enjoys the quiet of natural settings and the beauty of diverse communities. He loves hiking, backpacking and fishing. He also enjoys reading, browsing in bookstores, and traveling. He is more of a quiet generalist, but enjoys working with groups, wordsmithing, tinkering, and delving into topics around spirituality, ending racism and climate change. Lisa loves hanging out with her family/friends – hiking, traveling and learning together. One of her favorite interests is policy work in the legislature. She enjoys playing flute with classical/Irish ensembles and loves traveling abroad. She is committed to using her white privilege to end systematic racism.
Our son, Elijah, is inspired by innovation, beautiful engineering, fine cars, history, current events and amphibious pedal vehicles. Our daughter, Albany, just started college out of state in August 2021. She is inspired by space flight, science, social justice, the environment and more. She also loves dogs/cats, surfing and traveling. We work daily to honor them and their paths.
