Alder Commons is a community space where kids and adults alike can attend workshops & classes, and spend their time freely. Our members are coworkers, makers, and learners of all ages. Soon, we'll offer drop-off programs after school and during summer, as well as a full-time option for young people to attend as an alternative to school.


Do you work remotely? Are you an artist in need of shared workspace and/or studio space rental? Are you an entrepreneur or do you run your own small business? Are you looking for family-friendly coworking?

Learn more about our Coworking.


Are you and your family looking to connect more with your community? Do you want to take classes and workshops?

We think it’s important for people of all ages to connect with their community and to develop and explore their passions. While we offer coworking and classes, we are not a coworking space or a school.
