Introduction

My son lives in Walnut Creek and I am looking at the possibility of moving from Seattle to his area. I want to see what the co-housing communitgy is like in the East Bay area. I am looking for a particular kind of environment.

How did you hear about East Bay Cohousing?

I get the Cohouse/US newsletters and followed the links there to this site.

What does Cohousing mean to you?

The potential to live in a community with shared values and to contribute to the betterment of lives for others. Plus, have access to shared support systems - life experiences, growth, etc.

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

Open to all.

Where are you most interested in living?

Not certain exactly where yet.

    Thank you so much for attending. At the risk of feeling superstitious, I expect you will contribute a lot to the group. As I said, you are now part of the "Constitutional­ Convention" of our group, which will become whatever we want to make it. We are evolving!

    As the current meetup on 9/6 does not work for you, let me know what dates, times/ and places would be good for you. I also live in Freeland. As the weather starts to cool, we might want to look for an indoor venue. The Freeland Library meeting room might be a good location. Or perhaps we might want to use one of the restaurants in the area.

    Welcome, Peg! Berkely, hmm. Many years ago, I flunked out of the University of California at Berkeley. Does this make me compatible with you, or perhaps among the great unwashed? (Well, I do take a shower once in a while.) Anyway, glad to have you on board. I call myself the self-appointed dictator, so if you into protest, go for it!
