Gathering Critical Mass for North Bay Cohousing

Over 50 folks joined us, North Bay Cohousing, on Sept 13th in Novato, CA to learn about two real and now cohousing opportunities in the North Bay: a Novato site for sale and a Cotati site under contract. During the presentation, we dove into the actualities of building new cohousing communities in the region, with Katie McCamant of CoHousing Solutions describing her deep-seated experience in the field/as a long-time cohouser herself.

Now we’re at that critical point in cohousing so many groups know well…gauging interest in these sites, and gearing up a committed crew for our Kick-Off Workshop on October 17 & 18 in Cotati. Led by cohousing experts Katie McCamant & Chuck Durrett, this weekend workshop will allow us all to meet, and fully understand the process, principles and pricing to move a project from dream to reality.

If you’re driven to help us create new cohousing in California’s North Bay, we’d love to have you at the table for this Workshop! RSVP’s before SEPT 30 get the early bird rate.

Additionally, we’re hosting our first Cotati site tour Sept 27th, and another on Oct 10th — both at 5pm. After meeting at the Redwood Cafe, we’ll carpool to walk the site. You can learn more here via our events flyer or by emailing
