Dharma Rain Zen Center

Dharma Rain Zen Center is a A 14-acre former landfill restoration project in NE Portland with a co-housing effort focused on community.


We are involved in the Living Building Challenge, a green building certification program that defines the most advanced measure of sustainability in the built environment. Although the Householder Refuge buildings will not be built to meet the full standard, they are being informed by the discussion for other aspects of the development.

We are restoring much of the land to native wildlife habitat

We are rehabilitating a brownfield site into a thriving community and intact ecosystem

We are partnering with a variety of educational institutions in order to use our property for their ecology studies and sustainable agriculture programs
