Founded in the early ’90s, Higher Ground Cohousing Community attracts residents who are interested in knowing their neighbors and living a sustainable life.
We value a multi-generational community, and welcome families, singles, and couples of all ages.
Our community is 39 households on seven acres at the corner of Jackson Ave. and Daggett Lane in northeast Bend. Homes range from 1000 to 2000 square feet, and are built on privately owned lots. Many homes are energy efficient and were built with environmentally-friendly materials.
About four acres of the community are owned and enjoyed as common ground. Common areas include a kids’ playground, two meadows, a pond and waterfall, an orchard, and a large and thriving community garden. Our buildings, roads, and paths were developed to adapt to the natural terrain. Beautiful rock outcroppings, native wildflowers, and the two meadows have been preserved.
In addition to these shared grounds, common facilities include a common house for socializing and dining indoors or outdoors, a multi-purpose room, a guest room, and a sauna and outdoor hot tub. We manage our common grounds and facilities through a Homeowners’ Association, and maintain them with a mix of community work parties and paid help.
Like other co-housing community residents, we share some meals at the common house, create and participate in fun and connecting events, and serve on the board and committees.
