Shared Vehicle

Being a Co-op member of The East Yard provides you with access to a shared car you can reserve and use at a low hourly or daily cost.

Spin Cities Farms

Through a partnership with Spin Cities Farms, urban farmer AJ Meulemans, will manage our bee colony, a small flock of chickens, a host of perennial plants, and maintain a compost bin.
He will also lead onsite farming of 100 Beds. This will result in a discounts for CSAs for co-op members. A full share will be $200 (60% saving) and a half share $125 (54% saving) and there will be opportunities to do work-for-trade and receive a free CSA share.  A twice annual "harvest meal" will also be hosted.

Repairs and Maintenance

Cooperative living offers many of the benefits of home ownership but also reduces the maintenance requirements of each individual by centralizing the upkeep at the Co-op level much like a condo or townhome association.
