Responding to Vonnie's comment, yes, from my initial explorations it does appear to me that many co-housing groups seem to have some core common philosophy or interest, such as vegetarian eating, home-schooling, or ecologically balanced living. I haven't explored enough communities to know how much these common interests--very important to the core organizers who initiate co-housing discussions -- actually get translated into the interests of the group that finally winds up moving into the co-housing. Most organizers seem to find that their interests are a little too narrow to actually find enough people ready and able to build a co-housing community, and they have to broaden as they move the project toward reality. This is undoubtedly a valuable growth process if it really produces a diverse community of mutual respect. I wonder, though, if people in the original core group regard later-comers who don't share their interests with some regret. Comments, anyone? Rachel findley [at] math.berkeley.edu
