Tours & Events
NE Summit and Open House Tours a Success!
Wow - we did it! Cohousing enthusiasts came together on Sept 28th in Cambridge MA to network and learn from each other and our outstanding presenters. Existing communities learned more about work systems, maintenance of facilities, getting along and aging well together. New folks and forming groups learned about development, group formation and dynamics, and the design process. We also ate well and enjoyed strolls between our two hosting communities - thank you Cambridge Cohousing and Cornerstone Village!
On Sunday open house tours were held in 11 New England cohousing communities! The fall foliage made for a great Sunday drive between hosting communities - and many completed their tour with a potluck at Nubanusit Neighborhood or fire-roasted pizza at Katywil Farm Community.
With so many good reports on both days our planning committee thinks it might be a good idea to try to do this every other year! Until then - see you at the National conference in 2014!

A personal visit to a variety of cohousing communities offers you an experience that no photo, website or book can offer. COHO/US tours are currently being reorganized to support a more regional model. You'll find independently organized tour information listed above. There are many open house tours that are listed on our google events calendar to the left.
