Community Work

As mentioned in our Book of Agreements, every member of our community is expected to take responsibility for their share of the work of running the community. There are many ongoing jobs to be done, where members tend to have 2-4 jobs per season, averaging about 8-10 hours per month.

We do our own work for a variety of reasons:

  • save money
  • build community
  • take ownership

We tend to favor - while making exceptions - to perform our own labor over hiring out tasks. Some advantages with this approach are that our memebers feel a greater sense of ownership, it helps to build community, and it works to offset some of the costs which would otherwise be added to our association fees.

We also traditionally hold a spring and fall work day to help make repairs, clean up, and spruce up our community.
