Portland Micro-Community

With the destruction of the Hedonisia community by the Kilauea volcano, we have been forced to temporarily relocate our operations. Mojo the Community Director, is now living in Portland as a volcano refugee.

Mojo will continue working on the EcoFeminist Web Portfolio from Portland and manage the Hedonisia 2.0 Rebirth Crowdfund.  until it is possible to return and rebuild.
Those who are still interested in being a volunteer or intern can do so as a Virtual  Volunteer or as a volunteer or roomate, if they live in Portland OR.


Hedonisia Portland!

A community does not have to be on a big property like the Hedonisia Hawaii.

As with many of the 'cool' cities in the world, it is very expensive to buy housing or land in Portland. So, to reflect the current reality, our urban micro-community model is based on rental housing.

We define a micro-community as 2 - 5 people living together in a house or apartment in the city.

We chose to make our first urban micro-community in Portland, one of the most progressive and feminist cities in America.

In Portland, Mojo works on public relations, website development, and research on our Portfolio of EcoFeminist Entrepreneur projects.

Urban Portland Micro-Community!

If you are traveling in the Portland area, please contact us if you are looking for temporary lodgings in our 'micro-community' in Portland where we rent a room at our two bedroom apartment.

We are in a city so our Volunteer Program is smaller in scale than in Hawaii! Applicants can enjoy a discount rent in exchange for volunteer support of work on the websites in our EcoFeminist Web Portfolio.

Portland Micro-Community Rental Ad!

We seek temporary roommates at our 2-bedroom apartment located in SE Division.

We are across the street from Mt Tabor Park which has lovely hiking trails.

The apartment complex is walking distance to a number of restaurants and one direct bus to downtown! We rent one of the two bedrooms.

  • - The room is furnished with a queen memory foam mattress bed!
  • - There is also a beautiful fireplace in the living room (shared wood expense!)

Couples' Rate

The apartment is a little small for a couple sharing with me when I’m there. So if I rent to a couple I require a higher rent as I will leave to go traveling. So if a couple wants to rent then it is $1200 per month with two separate applications needed for the background checks.

Volunteer for Rent Reduction!

Portland Urban Micro-community Living Room
Hedonisia Portland:  Living Room!

When we live with like-minded roommates, we are in a sense, creating a tiny apartment 'micro-community' that complements our larger jungle community in Hawaii! Applicants with writing, research or tech skills who are interested in volunteer work on any of our web projects can do so in exchange for a reduction in rent!

For every hour you work on any of our web projects, we lower the rent by $20 up to a maximum of $300 rent reduction per month! However, if you are especially skilled, we can offer more hours for a greater reduction in rent!

Here are some of the projects you can choose to work on in Portland:

  • Hedonisia Eco-Feminist Web Portfolio: These are the feminist entrepreneur sites managed by our community that deal with subjects such as reproductive rights, eco-feminist, female empowerment and sex-positive feminism! Volunteers work on research, writing, database and site updates.
  • Video Editing: We create and edit many educational and instructional videos for our web projects. If you are proficient with video editing let us know!
  • Tech Volunteer. Especially for eco-feminists with advanced WordPress, Social Media or SEO experience, we have volunteer work for you!
