Founded in 2015, Scraptoft Housing Co-op is a large house with a lovely garden, also sharing an additional extended garden with two of our neighbours. Our collective gardens hold open grass, flowers, trees, vegetable plots, an orchard, chicken coops, a cabin, and it backs out onto the local allotments.

As a community, we care about social change. Many of our members are involved in activism in different ways, and we try our best to support and accommodate each others varying needs.
We care about our impact on the world, and are steadily trying to make this a sustainable living space, and would welcome anyone bringing new ideas and energy to that goal.

Members of our community enjoy board games, crafts, outside activities, cooking, gardening, etc.

We are open for visitors, and prospective new members. So if you care about sustainability, community, and making the world a better place, please get in touch
