• What we'll do
Our next gathering will feature several reports about recent developments of interest. First of all, Jane Bleeg of the Flower City Cohousing Community (being planned for Rochester, NY) will join us via internet to relate how their group is handling many of the same issues EVNJ is facing. Then we'll hear about a pending interview of a developer who we feel appreciates our special issues and goals. The Meetup will provide a chance to have an open discussion about how we should present our aspirations to him and what kinds of questions we should pose during the interview.

So join us on February 11 to hear all about it. As usual we'll start at Noon with a pot-luck luncheon (please bring a dish to share). The reporting, discussing, and planning will begin at 1:00.

2018 is shaping up to be a memorable year for our movement. The New York Times had a major article about cohousing on January 21. The Wall Street Journal will soon be featuring Village Hearth (in Durham, NC) in an article about green building. And New Jersey Monthly is planning to run an article about our own project in the spring.

Construction has started at Fair Oaks EcoHousing in Sacramento, CA. Residents have started moving in to Quimper Village in Port Townsend, WA. It's clear that people are actively looking for hopeful alternatives. New Jerseyans, too, deserve the opportunity to choose a thriving lifestyle in an eco-community. Join us to hear how you can help make it happen!
