RainDance

Windsor, Colorado

RainDance is the first collaborative farming community in Colorado that balances the traditions of agriculture with the necessities of a modern lifestyle. It’s where people live in the farm and work among functional fields and orchards, sharing the produce of 50 acres of cultivated landscape. Take a walk through four distinct districts that celebrate the seasons, embodying winter, spring, summer and fall through unique landscape elements, plant palettes, street names, and farm crops. Agrarian patterns bring the farming style to the heart of the community, and pedestrian-friendly public spaces embrace the hospitality of a classic small-farm town with farmer’s markets, produce stands, harvest festivals and other “agritainment.”

From the scientific labs and exploration spaces that enable cutting-edge research, to the community-sustained fields, greenhouses and marketplace stalls that empower new small business owners, RainDance is a catalyst for creative partnerships and economic distinction. Working farms planned for year-round crop production line the edges of RainDance, while demonstration farms, greenhouses, orchards and pollinator corridors provide residents with a hands-on opportunity to take ownership over their local ecosystems and collaborate in various cultivation initiatives. Life here is about learning and teaching, exploring and growing a healthier, interconnected reality together.
As the journey progresses, RainDance will be an open invitation for all to live in the farm and share the bounty for generations to come. The future is today; the future is RainDance.
