Bitternut Homestead is a four-to-six member co-household on Otisco Street in the Near Westside of Syracuse. Our location is within walking or easy biking distance to downtown and Armory Square, Lipe Art Park, Burnett Park, and a variety of favorite businesses including Middle Ages Brewery, Salt City Market, The Gear Factory, Recess Coffee on Tipp Hill, and Scratch Bakehouse.
We are looking for someone who will fit in well with our co-household model. We value sharing our lives through friendships and social activities, cooking and eating together, garden and landscape participation, regular house meetings and organization, and community and social justice engagements. All the while, we maintain independent and interdependent personal lives, private bedroom space, shared living spaces including a TV room with cast iron wood stove and a general purpose exercise/music/meditation room.
We are LGBTQ+ friendly, welcoming to diversity of all sorts, and currently are:
