How did you hear about East Bay Cohousing?

From a variety of sources at Parker St, Fairview House, NCLT, etc.

What does Cohousing mean to you?

Cohousing means to me an community of people who work together to create/sustain affordable housing for long-term security through mutual intentions, social interaction, & shared skills/resources. It implies a commitment to conscious dialogue, including conflict resolution, and individual and collective financial responsibility for mutual benefit.

What's most likely: Rent, Buy, Share, Build, Co-create?

I would do any of the above depending on my circumstances. I might be interested in co-creating a small, limited equity, co-housing artists community for artists in the future.

Where are you most interested in living?

I love North Oakland, but Berkeley/Eville/Alameda ok if the right fit. Ideally: close to BART, with outdoor space and a shared garden, as an artist I need some studio & storage space, ideally...would consider many different options.


I am a performing artist, personal trainer and Pilates instructor, and circus teacher. I have been learning about the range of co-ops, cohousing and intentional communities in the East Bay over the past few years.

    Nice meeting you too, Emily! Well, I joined lots of groups though I don't go to all of them. I don't know which group you're talking about but I guess maybe the other Korean group, SF Asian professional or 3o+ ? =p
