Common Areas of Cohousing & Ecovillages:
What Affects Affordability?
A community garden is often part of a cooperative housing project and is important to an ecovillage.
What is a community garden?
The concept of community gardens varies but the Boston Natural Areas Network, which owns and facilitates the operation of multiple community gardens in
the city of Boston, defines a community garden in this way:
Cohousing community gardens have several features in common:
1. They are almost universally organic.
2. They often provide food for common dining.
3. They expose children to nature and to sources of food.
4. They are therapeutic for most who work in the gardens.
5. They help create important biodiversity in the community. Community gardens create habitat support for insects and birds.
6. They buffer urban noises and sounds.
7. They are a source of sustainability.
In summary, they are another source of community building for a cohousing project as well as making the community more sustainable.
