Where do you live? Where do you want to live? When would you be interested in joining CoHousing? What type of community are you interested in?

I live in Berkeley Cohousing and used to live at Swan's Market Cohousing in Berkeley. Perhaps there's some ways to bootstrap this without starting a MeetUp from scratch. Looking forward to participating!


I'm a Cohousing Coach and Northern California Cohousing regional organizer eager to connect and support. I served on the Cohousing Association national board and currently am on the Fellowship for Intentional Community board.

What Raines C. is saying about this Meetup Group

It's exciting to have lots of cohousing events going on in the region. I'm looking forward to coming down more often and participating in some future events, fostering conversations about Aging In Community, Sustainability and Community. Perhaps site-search workshops, readings/talks with authors like Dave Wann (Affluenza, Superbia, Reinventing Community, and now Simple Prosperity), workdays (hey, we need to show folks it's not all just talk and nibbles, right?), as well as integration with other community groups and East Bay/SF/North Bay/Santa Cruz/Monterey area groups regionally.
