This is community at its best. A great blend of privacy, independence, and cooperation. People-centered rather than car-centered. A neighborhood with plenty of green space, plenty of privacy, and front-porch opportunities to share a meal, childcare, or just visit.
At Stone’s Throw we’re committed to designing our neighborhood together, to stewarding the land and building our homes by taking advantage of the principles of permaculture and sustainability, to welcoming diversity in our community, and to conserving resources. Consensus decision-making has been working well for us. We’re building, most importantly, a circle of people that respect each other and can make decisions about managing the common facilities cooperatively. This summer we’re moving into the fun part, community design, because we’ve purchased land!
We’re designing the lot layout to make social interaction easy and likely. We’re designing to eliminate waste by sharing resources and ideas. We’re designing a great place to live within walking distance of the center of Viroqua, Wisconsin.
Viroqua is the Vernon County seat, a comfortable town of 5,000 with a thriving food co-op in the heartland of organic farms. Viroqua is in the beautiful Driftless area of SW Wisconsin with its steep ridges and fertile valleys; cold, clean spring creeks; abundant wildlife; and tall bluffs overlooking the Mississippi river.
