It takes a village to raise a child

So, we’re building one!

Treehouse Village Ecohousing is a group of families and households from across Canada and beyond, working together to co-develop our own green housing project. Our village will be located on 15 acres of forested land in Bridgewater, a thriving town on the LaHave River in Nova Scotia — a province known as Canada’s ocean playground.

The 30 private condos will be arranged in a community-oriented design that facilitates social interaction. Each household will have access to a 5,000-sq.ft. common house and a shared workshop space — not to mention gardens, outdoor play areas, trails, old-growth forest, and hopefully a few treehouses!
