What is cohousing?
Imagine living in a neighborhood where….
You find support from your neighbors by sharing activities such as child-care, meals, carpooling, etc.
Kids can run around and play safely in a car-free environment, free to explore and grow with friends who live close by
Seniors are able to age in place in a loving environment
Resources are shared, thus reducing strain on the planet and giving you access to amenities you might not otherwise be able to afford (such as hot-tubs, workshops, orchards, gardens, craft and art studios, etc... this has yet to be decided, and if you join us you can help to design it!)
All residents work together to ensure that the community is a healthy place - leading to more socially connected and enriched lives!
All this while still having private homes to keep the balance
"Co-housing is community intentionally designed with ample common spaces surrounded by private homes. Collaborative spaces typically include a common house with a large kitchen and dining room, laundry, and recreational areas and outdoor walkways, open space, gardens, and parking. Neighbors use these spaces to play together, cook for one another, share tools, and work collaboratively. Common property is managed and maintained by community members, providing even more opportunities for growing relationships."
A Brief History of Co-Housing
Co-housing was started in Denmark in the 1960s, and started sprouting up in the US in the 1980s. There are now 200+ co-housing communities in 40 states and 140+ in formative stages across the U.S., and many more internationally!
