I worked with a number of other folks for more than a year to explore how we might create a cohousing community in San Francisco. We learned a lot through research, study, touring and visiting other coho communities, trial and error, etc. I attended the National Cohousing Conference in Oakland where I built relationships with cohousing consultants, national experts and people with experience that we tapped for advise. I was inspired by a vision to create an uber-sustainable cohousing model, a mixed-use development and affordable housing hybrid. But with real estate booming to new heights, we just couldn't get traction in the City. A number of the group formerly known as the 'Active Organizers' have joined other initiatives in the Bay Area and beyond. We turned the Meetup site over to Rains and Betsy because they are cohousing professionals and a reliable hub of cohousing information located the Bay Area.
Currently inactive for the most part with the exception of posting local events of interest. Please direct inquiries to Raines Cohen. Thx.
Meeting great people who share a long-held dream. Already feeling a tangible sense of community with other AO's (Active Organizers). This is great!
