Quite simply, an Agrihood is a neighborhood built within a working farm. It unites agricultural land use with residents who desire a greater quality of life, thinking beyond simple urban revitalization and addressing our need for reconnection. It’s the beautifully simple idea of growing food and growing community together.

In an Agrihood, the crops we tend and the place we call home exist together. This type of neighborhood combines the health benefits of living in connection to nature, the emotional well-being experienced in a community, and the positive environmental impact of local, organic agriculture. Add to that the goodness of net-zero energy homes, so we can do our part to protect the planet. It’s just a smart and satisfying way to live.
