Innovative. Sustainable. Home.

Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods created with a little ingenuity. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods, and share common facilities and good connections with neighbors. All in all, they stand as innovative and sustainable answers to today’s environmental and social problems. Welcome home.

Let the Planning Begin - Announcing National Cohousing Open House Day!

Coho/US is initiating a National Open House Day! Whatever these words may bring up for you, one thing is for sure - just as cohousing itself is a collaborative process and group effort, a living example that the whole indeed is greater than the sum of its part, it will be with this event as well. We invite your community, whether a newly forming seedling, actively growing or an established forest, to open its doors and hearts and welcome public visitors. You will showcase your communities on the same day all across the country.

The Best Place to Survive an Ice Storm

In Christmas of 2012, a year after my family moved to Belfast Cohousing & Ecovillage, our town was the epicenter of one of the most severe ice storms the Maine coast has seen in recent memory. Temperatures dropped to negative 5 Fahrenheit at night and electricity was out for days as ice encrusted roads and power lines. Yet while the pipes froze in houses just down the road, the homes in our village stayed warm without power, wood, or fossil fuels. When I returned to my ecovillage home after four and a half days without power, the temperature had only dipped from 68 to a tepid 58.
