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.
I get the Cohouse/US newsletters and followed the links there to this site.
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.
Open to all.
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!
Welcome to East Bay Cohousing, Peg. Shared support systems & betterment of lives sounds like a great vision for community. I'm looking forward to meeting you at our book reception this Wednesday: http://www.ebcoho.org/calendar/101896...
