Ant Hill Cooperative is a member-controlled/managed/owned housing organization, based on Cooperative principles. Ant Hill is an inspired mix of college style housing cooperatives (sharing a house), co-housing (having a private apartment, with common space), and ant farm creativity. They have members living in Ant Hill-managed houses and in apartments around the area. Their members have a great quality of life (for cheap) by pooling resources and splitting the work load. Together they can do bigger events, buy in bulk, and generally benefit from working together.
Like most cooperatives, they aim to be not just a supportive, affordable, and ecologically responsible place to live. They also focus on community activism and projects. RocWiki, Critical Mass, DIY Rochester, and other local groups have either started with Ant Hill members or have Ant Hill members as key contributors.
One of Ant Hill Cooperative's priorities is building a community of people, both members and non-members, to further the exchange of ideas, the incubation of creative projects, and development of a better Rochester.
They invite students, activists, creative persons, and anyone interested in good food, good people, and communal living to help make this dream a reality. If you would like to learn more about Ant Hill:
