We hope that those who are interested in Elderberry will fall in love with the community (the people!) but it doesn't hurt that we live in a beautiful place, and we haven't shared much of that on the blog thus far. Elderberry is adjacent to Potluck Community Farm, a 25 year old intergenerational community. We share several things between these sister communities - Potluck Farm uses the Elderberry common house, and Elderberry uses Potluck equipment (the tractor, most notably!) and 130 acres of beautiful woods and trails. In addition, the two communities jointly own a 12 acre parcel we call Bella Vista, named for the lovely view. There are several people in the community who walk these trails daily, either on their own or with others (and their dogs). It's a wonderful, peaceful and secluded area with plenty of waterways, wildlife and wildflowers. Enjoy the tour!
This is a trail we call Old Road Way because it was the original two-track through the property.
The rest of these photos were not taken today, but give you a glimpse of some of the other beauty in our back yard. Below is the pond at Potluck Farm where Potluck and Elderberry folks can swim or fish for bass or bream. Or just sit and relax in the gazebo!
The rest of these photos were taken at Bella Vista (12 acres of property owned jointly by Elderberry and Potluck Farm). When the weather is nice, several of us often walk (or ride the 4-wheeler) up to the hilltop to watch the sunset and have a drink together.

Hope you enjoyed the tour!
