Living Here

Our Vision

La Querencia models a sustainable way of life by cultivating an atmosphere of trust
and nurturing a sense of belonging.  Our homes and the spaces we share exemplify the   environmental stewardship we value. We celebrate together, break bread together, encourage each other, and work together to create an earth-friendly, intergenerational community of friends.
