Greetings, Hopework Folk School friends! Some of you know that living in a cohousing community is one of my dreams. I long for a Common House. Cohousing ideals have influenced a lot of the work I’ve done over the years, including the design of Philosophy Camp and Hopework retreats, but I’ve never lived in a cohousing community. Now, I’m stepping-up to help cohousing communities spring-up in the Twin Cities. As part of this effort, I am excited to announce that architect Chuck Durrett will speak on cohousing Thursday, September 15, at First Universalist Society of Minneapolis from 7-9 PM. Twin Cities Cohousing Network (TCCN) is sponsoring the event. Individual tickets are available at Eventbrite: bit.ly/CohoEvent (donation to TCCN is requested). Cohousing communities are custom-made, highly interactive neighborhoods where people know, care about, and support their fellow neighbors. Individual, privately-owned homes/apartments are located near a Common House and close to each other, creating a natural flow of interaction. Residents eat together multiple times a week and often share a large green space. Cohousing communities provide a fun, safe and healthy environment for children, adults, and the elderly, with as much privacy as one chooses. Today, over 160 cohousing communities exist in the U.S. and many more are in development. Chuck Durrett has designed over 50 of them and has consulted on many more. Join me in welcoming Chuck on September 15. Learn more about cohousing and connect with others who share an interest making cohousing a choice in Minneapolis and St. Paul. See cohousing links below for more information.
