I am interested in learning more about the range of co-ops, cohousing and intentional communities in the East Bay.
From many sources...I heard about Addison St. from Natalie Leonard at Parker St…Parker St. from Fairview House residents, Adam Chew (my former housemate) & Ian Winters and Fairview House from Ashley Foster, a former resident, also Craig's List...
Cohousing means to me an intentional community that creates/sustains affordable housing for long-term security through mutual intentions & shared skills/resources plus conscious, respectful dialogue that includes a process for conflict resolution.
Any of the above, depending on the circumstances. I am curious about the North Oakland and Downtown Oakland communities that are searching/forming, as I am fond of my current neighborhood!
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.
we will try to be back by 4-4.30 pm.
Sure, hope to see you on Sat!
yo emily! we should organize the next GKSG event. i was about to leave bc it looks like it's been dormant for a while. p.s. i biked past circus center today.
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
