COMMUNITY RESIDENCES

Intended for long-term residents, the RISE Community is a regenerative neighborhood which offers a new and replicable model for living that pushes the boundaries of what is possible while still valuing the teachings of the past. Full-time inhabitants of RISE are diverse, yet like-minded, individuals who are much more than a mere community or even a close group of friends. We are a tribe of entrepreneurs whose shared life aesthetic is that of service to each other, the earth and the greater world. This ethos permeates our business goals, community actions, and family values.

SERVICE TO OTHERS

How can I support the fullest expression of who you are?  It is a simple question but one that provides the basis for the deep connection within our community and our offer to the greater world.  By gifting our talent and insight to each other we raise the potential for our entire community. Simultaneously we experience the profound joy of positively influencing the life trajectory of a cherished neighbor.

COMMON HOUSE

At the physical core of our community is the Common House. The space features a large communal kitchen and dining area, play area for children, co-working space, yoga and meditation area, and a swimming pool. It is a place where we gather as a tribe; where we nurture and deepen connections to each other. Our passions are diverse- we are entrepreneurs, teachers, healers, thought leaders, artists and more- and everyone has something to teach or share.

COMMUNITY SCHOOL

Our children’s influence in shaping the world to come will far exceed our own capacity. It is paramount that we empower them with the proper tools. Drawing on the teachings of Rudolf Steiner’s Waldorf Schools and the Green School in Bali, our community school will provide an environment that celebrates creativity over test scores, cooperation over competition and experiential learning over rigid curriculums.

WHOLESOME FOOD, PRISTINE WATER

At RISE, our edible landscape is about so much more than having a few fresh herbs around; it is about full-scale production of organic produce that can nurture and sustain us through truly healthy eating. All of our water comes from pristine natural springs within our community, and is pure and mineral-rich. Delicious food and perfect water are essential to us, and our location was selected with this specifically in mind.

RESOURCE SHARING

Society too often pushes us to covet ownership of things, even when they would seldom be used.  In many cases, access to these things would fulfill most of our desires. When we prioritize access over ownership, a model for resource sharing emerges.  This model applies not only to physical possessions but to the gifts and talents of community residents as well. Sharing physical resources reduces our impact on the environment while sharing our individual expertise catalyzes the growth of our neighbors and by extension the fabric and well-being of our community.
