You've probably seen the ads for the Rocky Mountain Cohousing Association (RMCA) 's Cohousing video tape in the Cohousing Magazine. In case you have not I'll quote one below before commenting. ======================================================================= The Video for your next cohousing orientation! Cohousings -- Neighborhoods for People by Paiss Productions This 22 minute professionally produced video clearly explains the Cohousing concept, its Danish roots, and why it is appealing to those who live there. Full of interviews with cohousing residents and images of daily life in many US communities. It is the perfect introduction for orientations, giving to friends, parents, government officials, and lending institutions. It should be part of every communities library. $40.00 plus $4 s&h RMCA 1705 14th Street #160 Boulder, CO 80302 ===================================================================== This tape was previewed (in near complete form) at the 1995 national convention in Boulder but somehow none of the three of us from Minneapolis who went got around to looking at it. And so far no one (that I know of) here has gotten a copy. I guess the $40 for a 22 minute tape has seemed a bit steep (tho RMCA is a worthy group of course). Also our out reach efforts (and our Umbrella group in general) have been at a low ebb in the last year or two. Now that we are gearing up to recruit for Homewood Cohousing ** I'm thinking of sending off for the tape but decided to solicit reviews here. I presume it covers only new construction cohousing. I also wonder if it covers the special challenges of cohousing in very urban settings. Zev Paiss who was the prime mover behind the tape is a subscriber here. Zev, care to comment on the tape? I'd be particularly interested in comments from others too. ** Homewood Cohousing: http://freenet.msp.mn.us/housing/cohousing/homewood/ Fred -- Fred H.
