Corani is a small housing cooperative based in Devon. On the edge of the town of Crediton around 6 adults and one toddler live in a semi-detached Georgian house bought by Corani in 2013.
The Crediton house has a large garden around it in which we grow as many fruit, vegetables and herbs as we can, whilst leaving enough space to play football with the dog. Chickens roam around the garden and we have a homemade beehive with a successful colony that produces delicious honey.
We aim to live as sustainably as we can in our current situation; the Crediton house have ongoing work making the house as insulated as possible.
The members share all communal living spaces and we eat together every evening with a casual cooking rota meaning that everyone cooks at least once a week. Decision making is essentially pragmatic: by consensus where all are concerned, otherwise with sensitive autonomy.
Things some or all of us like to do are: gardening, carpentry, DIY, singing, dancing, climbing rocks and mountains, camping, community energy, cycling and walking
We don’t currently have space for new members.
