Membership Process

Nyland does not have a formal membership process or really any legal control over who a homeowner chooses to sale or rent to. Instead we rely on both sides asking the question ‘is this the right fit for the individual and for the community’. Living in cohousing, and specifically at Nyland, is not for everyone. While we love it here, we realize it may be hard to know if you will too. So here are our recommendations to help both you and Nyland answer that question.

Sign up to be notified when a sale or rental is announced by filling out our Buy Rent Email List form

Read through our website. We have tried to included as much information as possible on our website to help you better understand what living here is like. 

Spend a few days at Nyland by renting one of our guest rooms. This will give you the chance to wander the land,  meet more residents, and have casual conversations on the pedway. Planning your stay around a community meeting or workday will make it even easier to meet folks.

Find ways to get to know Nyland better and make friends here. The more you get to know Nyland, the more Nyland will get to know you. In the end, this will help you decide if Nyland is a good fit for you.
