Forming healthy/eco co-op house: Bay Area of California

Hi!  I'm working on forming a small co-op of up to probably 5 people at most in the Bay Area of California.  The city will probably be Santa Cruz, Scotts Valley, San Jose, or a hilly/lake/park section of Berkeley or Oakland.  Each person will hopefully pay under $600/month total for rent+utilities, and refundable security deposit of $0-600.  Move-in date at earliest would be May 13, 2013.  Even if I end up moving to some other home for awhile, this co-op idea is still one I'd like to co-create at some point hopefully within 2013. 

I don't know yet if it'll be 100% low-fat raw vegan, or just vegan, or just vegetarian, or what.  But nutrition and growing produce will definitely be welcome, and I do really enjoy living with vegans and especially fruit heads.  (I'm low-fat high-raw vegan.)

There are many other ways I dream of this home being a healthy, relaxed, warm oasis: non-toxic cleaning products, no strong chemical smells (sage, incense, essential oils welcome), no cigarettes, no daily/heavy drug use, quiet enough to sleep 10pm-10am, conflicts handled maturely, monthly house meetings, chore chart, yoga and dance and healing arts and other art not forced yet very welcome, often-opened sunny windows, etc.  And of course the nearby redwoods and beach and California gorgeous nature and awesome conscious events.

Please let me know if this resonates!! :D  The Bay Area is very special...can tell you about it if you haven't visited yet.

Here's my Craigslist post:

Wow, this looks amazing! Would love to live in this kind of environment, but we have 2 kids.

Good luck x

Super cool! 

I'm an SF native going to into my junior year at college in Oregon. I aspire to be completely HCRV but it's a process getting that much fruit so I eat some cooked starches. 

I am also an ashtanga yoga aspirant and an ultra marathon runner, and I adore the idea I living in a community like you described. 

Perhaps a couple years in the future? Lets connect!

Did this end up being started?  I just moved into the area and if this is still happening I'd like to be a part of it sometime next year if it's in Berkeley or Oakland.

Oh wow, I wish wish wish I was in cali right now. Sounds epic. 

Did anything ever some of this? I"m very interested in this idea!
