Henning Mortensen

Prairie Spruce Commons

Henning is a founding member of the first cohousing community in Regina, Saskatchewan, Prairie Spruce Commons. He is active in the Canadian cohousing movement and is on the committee for the Canadian cohousing conference. Henning was a Business Analyst and Project Manager in Regina. He has a long history of volunteer work with the City of Regina and was responsible for the creation of Bike to Work Regina ( Henning is president of FRAG, the flatland regional association of gamers, a local board gaming group. Henning was originally from Denmark and though it is with some difficulty, he has been able to read Danish cohousing material such as the 25-year anniversary book from Saettedammen, often considered the first cohousing community. Reading the accounts of those first founders, with their reasons for seeking a new way of living, it is amazing to see where we have changed and where we are still following in their footsteps. Ask me about what Saettedammen does that I found shocking and interesting.
