Intro to Dallas Cohousing: Village Life in Urban Dallas

Imagine that:

  • You know your neighbors.
  • You own your own home.
  • Your kids always have someone to play with, and always have a babysitter available.
  • You live sustainably, with a small carbon footprint.
  • You share some meals, laundry and work space, pool, garden, maybe even a car.
  • You age in place, that is, stay in your home as long as possible.

All these, and more, are possible in cohousing, a return to village life, in which owner-residents design and manage their own community.

We'll show a short slideshow explaining cohousing.

And we'll tell you a bit about the vision of Dallas Cohousing in particular, to retrofit an existing building in urban Dallas.

We are considering property close to downtown Dallas.

Please bring a snack to share: sharing food builds community!

Note: Photo shows Swan's Market, an urban cohousing project in Oakland, CA.

    I missed the meetup but I'd love to learn more about this project. It sounds totally up my alley. :)

    37 folks attended. Lots of good questions. Several interested in taking the next step: excellent!

    Is this simply an explanation of what co-housing is, or will there be talk of co-housing opportunities currently available or coming up in Dallas?

      We'll describe the idea in general, then focus on Dallas Cohousing, our specific project in urban Dallas.

    It is mainly for newbies, (hence the line "Intro to Dallas Cohousing"), BUT attendance by committed members who can share is welcome. It will cover what co-housing is & co-housing opportunities.
