Bring your curiosities about cohousing to an informal gathering with good people and conversation. Learn more about cohousing and the plans for Mosaic Village now that we have land under contract in beautiful Bowness. Meet other Calgarians that dream of a more sustainable, connected, people-focused way of living! It's a very informal space to exchange ideas, ask questions & have some fun. (It's not a sales pitch of any kind. We do hope to meet future neighbours but welcome anyone intrigued by cohousing, whether urban, rural, eco etc...)

FAMILIES: we're super kid-friendly so please bring your kids! Mosaic Village has children from 2 through to 11. We'll keep them busy with toys and activities while you chat cohousing. (Duplo, crafts, Jenga, soccer, colouring.) The venue is a safe & contained area where children are within easy eye-shot.

1:00 p.m. Doors Open. Stop by any time between 1 & 4 p.m. for a chat, drink, or nibble. Cash bar available.
2:00 p.m. Cohousing & Mosaic Village 101
