Getting in on the Ground Floor

Planning gets started for the Elgin Agrarian Community

Are you interested in co-owning the first sustainable, agrarian, mixed-use community in Central Texas?

In 2017, the Elgin Agrarian Community, consisting of 80 single-family cottages and a five-acre farm, plus commercial community space, an agricultural training center, and the historic Mary Christian Burleson homestead, will become home to individuals and families seeking to live in an affordable, cooperative, and environmentally sustainable community, less than a mile from Elgin's historic Main Street. Pegasus Planning & Development and the Cooperation Group are looking for pioneers interested in living at the site to help organize the cooperative and recruit other members. Interested? Join the organizers at Wheatsville Co-op, 3101 Guadalupe, on Wed., Oct. 21, 6:30-8:30pm for an informational gathering. Go to the back of the office building (north of the store), and please park across the street to leave room in the parking lot for shoppers.
