What interests you about this group?

I'm looking for community. What I call an old-fashioned "extended family" but chosen, not born into. I also need something affordable; I want to feel economically similar to at least some of the folks I live with. Also interested in sustainability - solar heating/hot water and sweat equity!

Have you lived in a co-housing or intentional community? If so, what was your experience like?

Just roommates

Would you be in a position to invest in a new co-housing group? If so, within what time frame? (next year, next 5 years, etc.)

Within the next 5 years.

What features would your ideal co-housing community include? (community events, shared gardening, etc.)

Proximity to nature (i.e. woods, streams) where I can walk. Near a bus line or close enough to places I can bike to, like a coffee shop or library or something. Would like a garden - community plus a few flowers in front/behind my place. Community building for just hanging out or movies, concerts, talent shows, etc. Some shared meals OK. It would be fun to have a few (5 to 7) chickens! Or other animals, if feasible. But probably not.


A Mom of a young adult still partially at home; amateur musician (piano, voice, early music, + ) interested in Health; love to learn more about herbs. Like to plant stuff outside, walk in the woods, swim, sew, dance. Good friend of cats.
