Bowden House Community is a thriving intentional community which has been established since 2005 one mile from Totnes in rural Devon. We are a group of families and individuals enjoying learning to live consciously together and with our environment. We don’t have any ideological or religious focus in common and accept the diversity of backgrounds and beliefs reflected in our members. Our land includes an orchard, walled garden, large herb and vegetable gardens and 2 polytunnels, newly planted woodland, a tree house, ornamental gardens and lawns. We also share facillities like a wood workshop, community centre, clay pizza oven, tractor, events/workshop spaces etc. Some of the things which are important to us include: Singing, music, arts and crafts; developing our communication skills with eachother; Collaborating on community projects and the day to day running of things: celebrating and sharing food together; Sustainability, organic gardening, Forest gardening, biodiversity; Deepening our cennection with eachother and the land we live on. Most of the properties on the grounds are privately owned and lived in by individual/family members of the community. We have also set up a housing cooperative to own the Manor house (pictured) which includes a more communal household as well as some self contained accomodation. Please feel free to contact us to find out more about any aspect of our community.
