I live in York County, which is not far from Gettysburg. This past weekend I drove out to west Gettysburg to visit Hundredfold Farm
, which is a cohousing community. The people are so cool, very warm and friendly. They're in the proces of putting up passive solar houses. We went through the four that just went up, still under construction, but enough to wak through.
They have a greenhouse to recycle their water. The houses will be clustered together to lessen their impact on the earth and to encourage interaction. They have a working Christmas tree farm, and the whole thing is situated on 80 acres, wooded area, and beautiful view.
Definitely worth checking out their website for more information. Gettysburg has a college. Not too sure about other places of education or anything about their school district. I homeschool, and so does one of the founding families.
I don't have the resources to move in now, but I do know I want to keep in touch with the people and be a part of their community in some way. I'll be visiting again later this month probably.
