Details

Imagine that:

You know your neighbors. You own your own home. Your kids always have someone to play with, and always have a babysitter available. You live sustainably, with a small carbon footprint. You share some meals, laundry and work space, pool, garden, maybe even a car. You age in place, that is, stay in your home as long as possible. All these, and more, are possible in cohousing (http://www.cohousing.org/what_is_cohousing), a return to village life, in which owner-residents design and manage their own community.

We'll show a short slideshow explaining cohousing.

And we'll tell you a bit about the vision of Dallas Cohousing (http://dallascohousing.org) in particular, to retrofit an existing building in urban Dallas.

We are considering property close to downtown Dallas.

Please bring a snack to share: sharing food builds community!
