My wife and I are going to the Smokey Mtn area of North Carolina in a few weeks and would be interested in knowing about any cohousing groups active in the Asheville, NC area. Does anyone on this list have any knowledge of contacts in this area? By the way, we'll be staying one night in a place called the Celo Community, which is a wonderful "intentional Community" (it's in the Fellowship Directory). It's the oldest community land trust in the country (from the 1930s). It's not officially Quaker, but many of the people there are so it feels Quaker-influenced. They have 1200 beautiful acres in the Smokies, with a food co-op, a school, and have become the center of an arts and craftsy/alternative community for the region. And we'll be staying at the bed-and-breakfast there, a beautifully constructed building, for something like $12 per person, which, considering the great breakfast, is a fantastic bargain. (we spent a night there last year) Is all this to good to be true? Why aren't we ready to move in? Well yes, it kind of is to good to be true -- there's a ten year waiting list. It seems they're none-to-eager to expand onto their lovely scenic open acres. Guess I can't blame them. But if you're ever in the neighborhood, I'd recommend you pay a visit. And if you can offer any leads on Western NC cohousing, we'd greatly appreciate it. Kieran
