A cohousing community is a type of intentional community composed of private homes supplemented by shared facilities. The community is planned, owned and managed by the residents—who also share activities that may include cooking, dining, gardening, socializing and governance of the community.
The people in cohousing intend to live individually but in a community, since much in life is easier, often cheaper, and certainly more fun with other people around.
In 1988, Mike Slama purchased a 17-acre property that had been berry farmland since the 1940s. Life got in the way shortly thereafter, and Mike never got to live on this property. Now he's aiming to turn it into a cohousing community, caretakers for the farmland, and connected with the community. The property is an easy stroll to the Puyallup River, the Foothills Trail trailhead, and the Germaine Korum center.
This group is finding the people who will dream and develop this community into a reality.
If you are interested in being part of the forming of this community, join this Meet-up group!
