Arbco sits on a 2.2 acre site, and we use the land intensively. Children enjoy a large play structure, a smaller “clubhouse,” a nice flat field for games and somersaults, and a gentle hill just right for sledding. Grownups enjoy the terrace outside the Common House, and many interesting plantings, including fruit trees, berry patches, a rain garden, and flowers. We have a large community garden in which we grow produce for community meals, and a kitchen herb garden. Members may also have a personal garden.
The site attracts many birds, including owls, hawks, and occasional sandhill cranes. We have also seen deer, possums, raccoons, and foxes. And we have CHICKENS!
