Thriving During the Pandemic: The Story of One Urban Community

Caddis Collaborative has been privileged to design a number of cohousing communities across North America. As society begins to move out of COVID-19 restrictions, we reflect on how many of these communities have thrived during the pandemic. More than hunker-down survival mode, these communities looked actively to self-organize for neighborly care and connection. A case… Read More

July 3, 2021: #149 ReOpen Community

Communities across the country are shedding pandemic restrictions and celebrating being together again. As a community of communities we gathered on zoom to share photos and stories. Sunnyside Cohousing harvested strawberries from their garden and celebrated with shortcake. Rocky Hill had the special treat of a wedding. Cornerstone children made a cardboard village. PDX had a dance party with a covid pinata. Gainesville Cohousing shared art and talent in their “funshops”. And more and more.

What a joy it is to see communities coming back together, restarting common meals programs, and opening common houses. We also heard some of the struggles as communities fail to agree on whether to continue business meetings on Zoom or begin to have them in person, how and whether to address non-vaccinated folks who may be in community, and when to open up to those outside the community for various uses.

As ever, cohousing is blissful, relational and challenging. Welcome back, it’s great to see you again!

Blessing the Land At River Song

Even though we have roots in Oregon, Jim and I were in Vancouver, British Columbia waiting out the pandemic with the US/Canada border closed, so we were not able to come to the land blessing.   But there was such a strong desire to include everyone who was unable to be there, they had set up… Read More
