Walnut St. Co-op is a social change oriented cooperative household in Eugene, Oregon. In September 2000 we moved into a large, rambling house together, seeking to build community. As housemates, that means eating dinner together, sharing chores, attending house meetings, and fulfilling a basic commitment to resolving any conflicts that arise. Over time we’re finding that our friendships are deepening, and a shared vision is emerging based on creating shifts in society toward dialogue, reflection, and integration of diverse viewpoints.

    I just came across your blog. My family and some very close friends have a vision of a community. We have just found (not looking it just showed up) a perfect piece of property with 3 dwellings and all the things we need … are are trying to see about financing. Your blog is inspiring!

      Hi, Doug.

      I’ll send you an email about it. As of now we do have an upcoming vacancy for approximately nine months. If you’re interested, we’ll need to interview you and have you over for dinner (assuming you’re in town. Otherwise, we can arrange a Skype session or something).
