500 Communities Program & Other Great Conference Gatherings

If you’ve signed up for the Cohousing Conference, you may have chosen your intensives or mapped out your top picks for sessions. Well, if I could direct your eyes to the Networking Tab on the Conference webpage, there’s another way to connect with specific groups during your downtime. There are many free gatherings offered, ranging from a discussion on housing affordability with Partnerships for Affordable Cohousing to one on Looking to the Future of the well-utilized Cohousing-L email list.

A Toast For Fair Oaks EcoHousing!

On the night of April 13th, I had the pleasure of witnessing the joyful celebration after Fair Oaks EcoHousing received a unanimous (4-0) vote from the Sacramento County Planning Commission to approve all their project requests for development! This decision came on the heels of a number of successes for this 11-household strong cohousing group.

Benefits of the Conference, Even to a Veteran Cohouser!

I attended the Cohousing Conference in Seattle, WA in 2009 and had an amazing time. I'd been living in Cohousing for 6 years and thought I had a pretty good handle on the challenges and solutions for all the typical issues that come up in community. I was curious to see what other communities were doing, but fully expected the experience to reinforce my perception that I already know how it works.

We at Fair Oaks EcoHousing are a family-friendly, intergenerational group of households intending to build 30 homes on 3.5 acres. Our community’s start of construction is planned for summer of 2015. We’re actively looking for others who share our vision to join us.

We’re excited about our prime site location, minutes from the American River Parkway, Fair Oaks Village, Bannister Park, Sacramento Waldorf School and Rudolf Steiner College. Fair Oaks is 18 miles east of Sacramento.

Sparking the Conversation: Cohousing on Wisconsin NPR

We've all come across the kinds of stories that are meant to be shared. An article a friend recommends or a radio program we hear on the way to work and can't stop thinking about all day. Well, cohousing has been in the story spotlight lately - and with Conference registration having recently opened, the timing couldn't be more perfect.

Introducing the 500 Communities Program

Happy Holidays!
What an enormous gift cohousing gives to those living in community ☺

Many of you currently live in cohousing, have collaborated on construction or development of communities, or are in the process of finding your new cohousing home. So, have you ever thought…

I’d love to help make more of these communities a reality!
What if my work helped cohousing community formation from the ground up?
What if I could learn how, and bring those skills to meaningful fruition in my area?
