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.

Kids of Cohousing - A Fun Opportunity to Shine!

We are gathering a collection of videos (and other materials) about growing up in cohousing that we are hoping to debut at the National Cohousing Conference in Durham, NC in May.
Do you know young, teen, or grown children in your community who enjoy music, drama, poetry and/or video production. Do you have some awesome video clips from talent shows, speeches, or performances?

Elderberry: Senior Cohousing Among Gardens, Farm Animals and Nature

As the number of senior cohousing communities continues to grow, seniors have more choice in the type and location of a community that best fits their lifestyle. Elderberry, a cohousing community near Durham, North Carolina, is unique in that it is designed for seniors who want to live in a rural community as they grow older, caring for and supporting one another in creating a community homestead among gardens, farm animals, and nature, on a path toward more ecological living. Most senior cohousing is developed in urban areas that provide “walkability” as a key feature. For individuals who wish to be close to stores, restaurants, and entertainment, this is an excellent choice. But for seniors who prefer country life to city life, the woods, farms, trails, wildlife, gardens, animals, and starry skies are worth the occasional drive to town.

Katie McCamant is quoted: "McCamant predicts the number [of cohousing communities] will double within 10 years."
One of my quotes: "Baby boomers are demanding a better way to live. We want to be sustainable; we want community, happiness."
This upbeat profile is dampened with this perspective: Christopher Leinberger, a nonresident senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, says although cohos mesh philosophically with what many aging baby boomers want—dense, walkable communities—so do a lot of traditional developments that don't come with so many legal and financial headaches...."Banks still underwrite experience every bit as much as they underwrite balance sheets."
