Elderberry is a community for individuals and couples who wish to live in an energy-efficient home in a beautiful, rural setting, and to support and care for one another as we grow older. Our vision is to create a thriving senior cohousing community where members work together on activities of interest (farming, gardening, food preservation, cooking, crafts, etc) and continue to contribute to one another and to our wider community/world as long as they are able.
Elderberry is located at the Yarrow Ecovillage and is adjacent to a sister inter-generational cohousing, called Groundswell Cohousing. You can learn more about them at http://www.yarrowecovillage.ca/.
Elderberry is for those who want to live in the country but have the advantages of a village: a walk-able town, a close community, opportunities to play, eat and work together, and support and care as we grow older. The view from homes and the common house is distinctly rural – rolling hills and fields, pastures and pastured animals, gardens, barns. It is a quiet, tranquil place where the starry sky is unaffected by city lights.
Elderberry welcomes visits from those who may be interested in living with us. We invite you to explore our website or contact us to learn more about our lovely country community.
