Shepherd Village is the first co-housing community in West Virginia with all of their homes being completed about two years ago. They planned and built the community of 30 duplex and triplex homes, and work together on teams to support their community. Their values of environmental sustainability and soil regeneration show up in the conversion of many yards from lawns to food for pollinators, insects and people as well as in their work in community garden, conservation areas, and a pollinator meadow.
