About Us

Non-traditional co-housing design

We are proud to have a non-traditional co-housing design at Boulder Creek Community in East Boulder. We are what is called an in-fill co-housing community where an existing structure or set of buildings is filled-in by community members to create co-housing. Our founder, Greg, purchased 17 units (apartment-style condominiums) inside this 363-unit Gold Run condominium complex situated on a 12 acre creekside property. Members of our co-housing community may optionally  either rent  one of Greg’s condos, or rent or buy any Gold Run condo that is available.  Actively participating community members who have committed to the community, may have the option to buy one of Greg’s creekside condos at more favorable purchase terms (see the Rent/Buy page for details). Like many co-housing communities, we also have a few members who live “off-campus” elsewhere in Boulder, but who attend our events or hold seats in our core group. Contact us to check out our Co-housing Community in Boulder and our Creekside Rentals in Boulder.

Our Foundation Is Service

Our community is centered around the idea of service. We have a core group that is responsible for hosting events related to one of four core themes related to service:

  1. Service to our wider community (events include regular opportunities to volunteer with the elderly or the homeless; creek-side clean-ups and other environmentally focused events, etc.).
  2. Service to the Boulder Creek Community (events include monthly community meetings and dinners).
  3. Service to ourselves that promotes personal and interpersonal growth (events include heart centered activities like yoga of laughter, drumming, poetry night, morning meditation, and personal growth workshops).
  4. Service to the general public that promotes education about and opportunities to experience community living (also known as the Community Learning Center or CLC). This is an intentional way to host guests or “community explorers” from all over the world who are curious about community living. See the Visit Us page for details.

Founder, Greg Sherwin

Boulder Creek Community was founded in 2007 by visionary Greg Sherwin who had a dream of creating a more affordable urban cohousing community in the heart of Boulder, Colorado. Greg traveled to 55 cohousing and intentional communities around the country researching his dream before settling on an unconventional model for Boulder Creek Community.
