General Information

The Chrysalis Cooperative, home of the BHC’s first solar project, is a consensus-based mostly vegetarian co-op in a large old house with lots of character. Chrysalis is located in downtown Boulder, one block from Pearl Street. Chrysalians live lightly, buy food together, and share dinners, chores, and good times. Chrysalis values affordable living, environmental sustainability, conscious community, and human diversity. The Income cap for residents at Chrysalis is $48,360.


Chrysalis co-op buys mostly organic and as much local food as possible. The House works closely with local food organizations such as Boulder Food Rescue. While not all Chrysalians are vegetarian, meat is not allowed in community meals (but is allowed in the house).

Community Lifestyle

While House members are free to be their own spirit and use their time as they wish, building community through meals and House events is a big aspect of living at Chrysalis. The support and cooperation derived from fellow House members is an incredible benefit of the Chrysalis lifestyle.

Many colorful folks have lived at Chrysalis in past years. View those who have dwelled in the cocoon. Will you be on this list?
