From a wood carving workshop to dance parties in the Common House to a Wellness Weekend, Treehouse Village Ecohousing is alive with many fun, community-led activities this spring.

Atlantic Canada’s first cohousing development, Treehouse Village is a vibrant, multi-generational community dedicated to living lightly on the earth. Treehouse kids are playing on the Common Green and we’re enjoying the lovely spring weather in Bridgewater, Nova Scotia. Construction is almost complete on our 4000-sq.ft. Common House (the heart of any cohousing community) and all but one of our 30 condos are pre-sold.

From May 2 to 5, Treehouse Villagers enjoyed a Wellness Weekend. Organized by our community members, this special event helped us spend time together and re-charge after a busy winter finishing our energy-efficient Passive House units (now powered by rooftop solar PV panels!).

The Wellness Weekend included a yoga class, a creativity studio, a meditation room, massage sessions, movement breaks, walks in the woods … and even tea and sweets! 

“These days are a reminder to look after ourselves and after others,” said Diana, the amazing Treehouse Villager who took the initiative to spearhead the four-day event.

Residents are also busily organizing “Interest Groups” – informal meet-ups to share common interests. We have groups for cyclists, creative writers, gardeners, documentary film lovers, bibliophiles, and crafty members who love quilting, knitting and crocheting.

And even more is happening at Treehouse Village…

  • A wood carving workshop with Andrew
  • Fun and games for kids with Clara
  • St. Patrick’s Day Ceilidh with Caitlin
  • Ultimate frisbee with Meg and Matt
  • Weekly picnics in front of the Common House
  • Garden greens from Mhari and Chris
  • Ice cream social
  • … and this impromptu baseball practice!

Come celebrate the Summer Solstice with us at our Community Open House on Saturday, June 22 from 10:00 am to 2:00pm! Find out more here.
