Madison ASH

Advancing a just transition to a sustainable planet

The challenge: As a human family, we need to re-invent ourselves – completely. Every aspect of our lives – our homes, our workplaces, how we move through the world, our food systems, our energy systems – everything. It all needs to change, and we need to do so quickly.


The solution: The ASH Project will be a housing cooperative located in or near Madison, WI.  We envision the following:

  • Variety of unit sizes including options for extremely affordable home ownership as well as a limited number of affordable rentals.

  • Community garden, permaculture, and edible landscape

  • Net zero carbon, living building

  • Radical hospitality inclusive of all races, genders, orientations and creeds.

  • Promotion of economic justice and self-reliance

Would you like to...

  • Purchase your own unit, even if you don't have significant financial resources

  • Retire in a community that is not isolated and lonely

  • Give and receive shared resources like child-care, gardening, electric vehicle ownership, community meals, and skill sharing

  • Actively participate in the solution to the climate crisis and human injustice

Join our movement!

  • UPDATE: We have identified the first ASH Project to be Voitlandia! More information on this exciting 64-acre farm can be found here.

Imagine what would be possible, if we built a living community based on LOVE…

"The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members."
