About Listening Tree Cooperative


Listening Tree Co-op is a community of equity- and ecology-minded individuals, growing our own food, sharing meals, hosting community events, and living and homesteading cooperatively together in Chepachet, RI. We share 33 acres of land, 5 of which is farmland. Fields are open for market farmers to join us, or others with land-based enterprises.

We are a cooperative household, incorporated as a limited equity housing cooperative to preserve farmland for farming & housing for people, and to make it permanently affordable to do both here. See our vision statement for details.

To stay up to date, follow this blog on WordPress, and/or sign up for our email list to receive updates about upcoming events. Our events page lists our get-to-know-you potlucks, and other educational events.

To RSVP for events, use the links on the events page or call (401)710-9784. For the address or directions, please call (401)710-9784. We prefer people call before coming by, since this is our home and working farm.
