Cohousing Invitation

All are welcome to a free presentation. Four people will present their expeirences of cohousing in an interactive format. Included will be news of an emergent local cohousing group.

What is Cohousing? And how can you connect to building the village? 

June 19th, 7pm. Join us for perspectives on an emerging community. The event promises to be informative, interactive and richly diverse as it will be delivered by several voices. 

Many people in Peterborough would love to live more lightly on the earth within a diverse, vibrant caring community, especially if this provides the opportunity to age in place. Co-housing does all this. Similar to condominium living with small, independent living “apartments”, but based on the idea of an “intentional community” with substantial shared resources including a “common house” with a kitchen and dining room for regular shared meals. The community forms before the development is designed, to determine the common objectives for living in an active community. Cohousing has been actively discussed for several years in Peterborough, with a current mailing list of 65 people and over 100 Facebook friends. Goals that have come from meetings with a core group of 30 include being inclusive and living lightly. There will be an intro by Scott Donovan, a local architect as well as talks to support this idea and ample time for questions.
