Cully Grove weaves together shared amenities, existing trees, artwork, winding paths, play areas and garden beds to create a fun and sustainable haven for urban gardeners of all ages. In the tradition of cohousing and cottage clusters, this development extends green building practices from the individual home scale to that of a small, multi-generational community. On two acres, sixteen modest homes curve around two distinctive courtyards. One is anchored by a magnificent Oregon White Oak, the other by gardens and a hardwood grove where children play and families picnic. At the heart of the community is an 1,100-square-foot common house for shared meals, social gatherings, music, movie nights, or hosting out-of-town guests. In just a few years, Cully Grove has become a beautiful, bountiful and sustainable ‘farm-in-the-city,’ where residents live their values and can grow much of their food on site.
