Imagine! A home that contributes to living lightly on the Earth. A community who shares their talents, treasures, and time. A location with access to a thriving town and a forest, trails, and the ocean. I’m excited to move to Nova Scotia where I’ll continue to work remotely as a writer and where I’ll contribute to this wonderful, multigenerational Treehouse Village.

Burned out by the hectic and ever-changing social environment in a big city, we were looking to find community in smaller-scale environment with more trees than concrete. We looked into intentional communities and narrowed down the list of possible regions to the East Coast of Canada. Lo and behold Nova Scotia had to offer one of a very special kind: Treehouse Village. We love to be surrounded by bilingual and multi-generational people who share the same values but also challenge us to look beyond our own thinking bubbles. We are excited to explore the great outdoors of Canada and embark on many new adventures with our kids and new neighbours.

We’ve been investigating Cohousing since 2021, when we first learned about the concept and Treehouse Village. We were taken with the idea of living lightly, and TVE checked all the boxes for us.

We have been together for 39 years and share many hobbies, like bike riding, jigsaw puzzles and reading books. Phil likes to look for geocache, tinker with his Rubik’s Cubes and play board games. Sue sews and quilts and is interested in sustainable sewing and crafting. You’ll find her in the garden from May to October.

Adding up the years, we bring over 15 decades of lives lived in villages, towns and cities scattered across Canada, the US and Nepal. We heard about Treehouse, started exploring within a week and six months later moved to Bridgewater to keep our eyes on the construction of our new home, get to know Nova Scotia and delight in the company of nearby Treehouse folks. We think community is the only way to live. To Treehouse we bring an eclectic mix of theology, science, sociology, appreciation of all life’s ages plus enjoyment of cooking, reading, trees and oceans.

Our hearts beat with gratitude and joy knowing that Treehouse Village is the materialisation of the future we have been longing for. An intentional community galvanised by mutual understanding, growing trust, shared values, and vision on living lightly. We can’t wait to co-create a healthy environment and weave meaningful connections with our future neighbours.

After years of living in different parts of the world, we were searching for a place to lay down some roots. We stumbled across Treehouse Village, and it immediately felt right. As a bilingual family, we’re excited to be part of a multilingual, multigenerational community where we can learn from and share life with our neighbours. We’re grateful to know that our children will grow up alongside other kids, who will feel like family.

We were looking for a place where our little daughter Nina could grow up in a loving, caring community with other children and adults around, like an extended family. We found our beautiful opportunity in Treehouse Village! Wayne works as a researcher and teacher in green energy and has been exploring co-housing communities for a few years. Nelleke is a linguist and a counselling therapist originally from the Netherlands, and Nina is doing a great job at growing.

Treehouse Village is the opportunity to turn our ideal community into reality: environmentally conscious, backyard green space, walkability, multi-generational, with the hope of learning and sharing with our neighbours. We are both teachers, Mike at high school and Emma with a local non-profit as an entrepreneurship educator. We look forward to raising our family among friends in Treehouse Village.

We stumbled across Treehouse Village by happy accident in February 2019, just before our son Alfie was born, and we are ecstatic to have found such a warm, generous and supportive community in which to raise him. David is currently forging a career between environmental advocacy and green building, Caitlin recently complete an MA in Cultural Anthropology at Dalhousie, and Alfie is, frankly, adorable.

Cooperative and sustainable living has always been a dream of ours. We’ve done our time in the high-tech industry, and now we’re looking forward to a gentler, wiser, more fulfilling way of life. As a family, we’ve bounced around the world a bit, from the UK to France to Canada, and now we’re thrilled to have found a place to settle so near the sea, and with our own woodland too, in a country we have come to love. Our son, Zac, and golden retriever, Henry, are joining us, and Zac is looking forward to indulging his love of the outdoors. Best of all is the community of neighbours who are sharing this journey with us. We feel very grateful and will always acknowledge our privilege and good fortune. What an adventure life can be!

My retirement from being a university professor coincided with the sustained increase in Treehouse development work. Now that the Village is built and I am living in it, I am curious to see how my retirement will take shape. Living in our intentional community, built together, in a walkable town and close to the ocean, and very close to my daughter and son-in-law’s farm offers me many options! You will likely find me in the gym, on the water, in the garden, on the farm, writing or painting.

We are excited to be part of this dynamic community with friends living next door. Matt works in sports analytics and Meg works as a leadership coach and trainer for change-makers. With remote work allowing us to live anywhere, we could not think of a better home than Treehouse Village. We look forward to slack-lining in the woods, adventures around the South Shore, and meals and board games with neighbours.

For us, Treehouse Village is a chance to be part of a neighbourly caring community. We came across the Treehouse Village due to our daughter Caitlin and her family. After exploring the idea ourselves it seemed like an ideal solution, allowing us to downsize while living in an environmentally conscientious village surrounded by wonderful like-minded people. Not forgetting also we are closer to our adorable grandson Alfie. A win win.

From the first meeting, we knew we had found kindred spirits. Our passions include community, health, ecology and beauty and we see all those things coming together at Treehouse. Andrew likes to shape wood, glass and flour (not necessarily together). Susan is inspired by natural beauty and tries to recreate it on canvas, etc.
