You may or may not be aware that a few weeks ago, emboldened by our growing membership base and the support of Vancity Credit Union, we put in an offer to purchase Helgesen Farm, the property of our ecovillage dreams. After much back and forth, many last-minute meetings and plenty of nail biting, the news is finally in.
They’ve accepted our offer.
Thanks so much to all of you who gave us advice, wished us well and participated in the process.
Special thanks go to our Realtor Ken and our Vancity advisor Danella – we couldn’t have done it without you two. And of course, a big thank you goes to the Wrights, the owners of Helgesen, for allowing us to take this giant leap toward our dream.
There’s plenty to do before the deal is closed (there’s that small matter of fundraising) but we all deserve to take a moment and celebrate.
