Let’s talk Sustainable Community: EcoVillages & Cohousing at the May monthly second-Mondays East Bay Permaculture Guild Potluck Gathering Come join us for our monthly meeting and potluck, and find out about some of the highlights of this weekend’s National Cohousing open house events (we look forward to hearing about ones you visited!) Cohousing communities, intentional neighborhoods designed for community and sustainability, bring together private homes with large shared areas. Research has found they start green and get greener. Folks work together to plant edible landscaping, grow food, cook together, and live richer, simpler lives through shared meals and mutual support. They form the key building blocks of EcoVillages, neighborhoods designed for sustainability, part of the original inspiration for what we today call permaculture. So much more is possible when you know your neighbors and some (if not all) share a passion for living well together and reducing our impacts while getting closer to the earth. If you’ve studied permaculture formally, you’ll recognize that it all begins with “Zone Zero,” the social and physical structures that make our homes. Following a short presentation, we will have large and small-group discussions about the intersection of permaculture, EcoVillages, and cohousing, and what we vision for ourselves and our communities. Hear about new initiatives for community that’s affordable and share how established communities are bringing about individual and collective transformation, within and beyond their borders.
