Vision and Values

Our Vision:

Cully Grove is a co-operatively governed community where a multi-generational group of friends lives simply, and where design, decision-making and day-to-day actions reflect shared values.

Our Values:

We commit to:

  • Respect and care for other people and the earth.
  • Appreciate the value each person brings to the community.
  • Cooperate in decision-making and conflict resolution.
  • Respect privacy, individual choice and diversity of opinion.
  • Encourage personal and community growth and service.
  • Connect to the larger community of neighborhood, city and region.

Our Mission:

To foster these values, we will:

  • Support one another in simplifying our lives, so we can focus on what we value most and consume fewer resources.
  • Participate in nurturing and mentoring children, helping them become active members of the community.
  • Encourage spontaneous fun and establish traditions that create a sense of place and community.
  • Share materials, knowledge and skills, to benefit one another and the community.
  • Create opportunities to learn from and with one another.
  • Ensure residents’ privacy and autonomy in their homes and yards.
  • Share equitably in maintaining and managing common buildings and grounds.
  • Ensure that our processes of governance leave ample time for members to engage with family and friends, and in broader civic life.
  • Welcome visits from others interested in learning from our experience.
