For those of you who are new to finding out about Cohousing in U.S., the best way to connect to local groups is through the national and regional newsletters. They give status reports and contact info for many of the umbrella groups and core groups. They also give lots of info about the process and pitfalls of developing Cohousing in the U.S. (it's tougher than Denmark). CoHousing Newsletters: CoHousing - (national) Innovative Housing 2169 East Francisco Blvd., Suite E San Rafael, CA 94901 subs $20 for 1 year (3 issues) Lots of great info on what's happening and how-to. The CoHousing Company ( 510-549-9980) also maintains a database of groups and interested people. I don't have their address here. The Northeast CoHousing Quarterly 15 Pine Street Amherst, MA 01002 Tel 413-549-3616 subs: $15 (indivs), $30 (groups) Lots of great info on how-to. Rocky Mountain CoHousing Quarterly 1705 14th Street #317 Boulder, CO 80302 tel 303-442-3280 subs:$15 newsletter only Highly recommended - I've never seen it, but natl newsletter recs it as highly as NE, and I like NE. Can't afford everything. I also recommend reading the CoHousing book (by McCamant and Durrett) and Collaborative Housing, by Dorit (spelling may be different) Fromm. The process of getting CoHousing going is complex, and not quick, and both books will give you a feel for the issues. Should be in libraries. One of these days maybe I'll have time to discourse on some of what we've learned here in the last 2 1/2 years. It's been fun, thank God, and a lot of work. Judy
