Living Tree is a role model for kibbutz-inspired living in the US; a thriving community connected through joyful, adventurous earth-based living
In the village common, there are children playing, village elders strolling nearby while a few of the adults are making pizza in the cob oven adjacent to the common house. The building design and construction is aesthetically inspiring, ecologically responsible and crafted with the help of skilled local tradesfolk.
Our orientation towards the observance of Jewish traditions, rituals and cycles while maintaining a spiritually inclusive consciousness creates a unique and meaningful fabric that defines our cohousing community. We gather regularly for Shabbat celebrations which include sharing in song, ritual meal, and contemplative walks on the land.
The place we call home is a year-round travel destination of indelible beauty that many families call home. It is a vibrant place with many employment options both in the Valley and in the nearby cities of Montpelier, Waterbury, Stowe and Burlington.
We love this place and enjoy sharing our creation with guests, the wider Mad River Valley community, and the world!
