Trelay Cohousing Community Trelay Cohousing is a vibrant community of twenty-two adults and nine children, established in at Trelay Farm. Trelay is a rural retrofit cohousing scheme and an educational facility welcoming hundreds of visitors. Our buildings include old stone buildings insulated and refurbished; and new buildings, built to a high standard.
The community aims to provide a rewarding and satisfying lifestyle to each of its members. We work hard but we also have fun. We are becoming an inspiration to people who wish to live lightly on the planet as we learn to live together happily, co-sufficiently, in harmony with nature.
The main features of cohousing communities are: Like other cohousing communities, Trelay has a range of private living spaces where people live behind their own front doors, as well as several communal buildings. It is like a small hamlet. Social and financial sustainability Trelay community members work hard at positive communication and good social structures.
We all value our children.
Members commit to licences under a Mutual Home Ownership scheme, which enables everyone to gain equity in their living space. Environmental sustainability The people living in the Trelay cohousing community make conscious efforts to live lightly on the Earth.
Examples of our sustainability efforts are: We have an electric car charging point. We have a large PV system and a ground source heat pump system. We are working towards better insulation of our houses and more renewable energy, and a new central community building. We try to produce very little landfill waste and we compost our garden waste.
Live-work life-styles Eventually we shall have up to 30 adults producing a large part of our food and energy from our own land and working on rural businesses for income generation: A model for the future For ten years, the people at Trelay have been developing a resilient, long-term, sustainable model of living together in a rural setting.
Diversity adds to our quality of life and the model includes people with little money, children, and people with declining energy due to age as part of the enlivening mix that benefits all who live at Trelay.
Our farm has become a rich and diverse environment with many different farm animals, building types and habitats for wildlife; and a centre for discussion and ideas.
More than 60 people have lived here during the past 10 years, with many people using Trelay as a stepping-stone to a new life-style.
As well as benefitting its members, Trelay Cohousing Community benefits hundreds of people who visit each year and thousands who read about our lifestyle and learn new ideas from us. Trelay Produce Our produce from the farm has included pork, beef, lamb, wool, chicken and duck eggs, milk, cream, yoghurt, cheese, honey, fish, many varieties of vegetables, tree fruit and nuts, soft fruit, timber, firewood, other forestry products, flowers, paintings, photographs and a wide variety of crafts — most of these in small quantities.
But now I realise that people must come first. Financial sustainability at Trelay is key, otherwise people are full of fear. After those are in place, the community becomes naturally more environmentally sustainable: When there are jobs to be done at Trelay which we expect to pay for, we try to employ Members of the Community, negotiating a rate of pay that is for the good of us all.
Community harmony Since its inception, Trelay has worked to develop ways for its members to live together in harmony, with conflict resolution procedures, communication meetings and sharing circles.
Currently we are working with an advisor on NVC Non Violent Communication and holding regular meetings to learn more about harmonious living. Affordable homes Trelay has developed a pioneering method to allow people with no money to join the community on an equal basis. Of the 22 people here, there are 5 who had considerable life savings or money from the sale of relatively expensive houses; 9 who had moderate amounts of capital; and 8 who had no capital.
Our system allows the people with wealth to act, in effect, as mortgage guarantors, enabling the others to make mortgage commitments. Trelay encourages people to set up businesses at Trelay, enabling them to earn money to pay for their mortgage commitment without travelling off-site.
This multi-generational method of sharing resources and working together to pay bills brings benefits to all. Affordable homes at Trelay are not only available at low prices, they enable people to develop their own step-up in life, gaining equity from a zero start.
Personal development opportunities People who live at Trelay have many opportunities to learn new skills and to develop new ways of thinking and experiencing life.
Members have learnt many things, from bee-keeping to milking a cow; from managing the accounts of a business to methods of insulating a building; from amazing recipes using our home-grown food to communication and meditation skills.
Older parents support younger parents with practical help and ideas. Young people help to care for ill people. We have experienced the death of a loved Member together at Trelay.Vision and other special senses. Pigs have colour vision and a panoramic range of about °, and binocular vision of 35–50°.
It is thought they have no accommodation (i.e., they cannot focus). Trelay Cohousing is a vibrant community of twenty-two adults and nine children, established in at Trelay Farm. The farm has thirty-two acres of land and is near Bude in North Cornwall in the United Kingdom, two miles from the Atlantic Ocean.
