San Francisco Bay area cooperative/intentional community/mini-co-housing forming: We are forming a small urban intentional community while we are here on the peninsula 20 miles south of San Francisco. We are negotiating to purchase one of 8-4 unit apartment buildings facing the lagoon between San Mateo and Foster City. There are fruit trees and room for an organic garden. We are seeking 2 or 3 other "families" to co-own in some form of a cooperative--something between intentional community and cohousing. We hope to share meals, gardening, and other interests. Perhaps other buildings will come up for sale in the future so we can create a larger urban community. For someone who has been living with a lot more space around than is usually available in this densely populated area, this location is wonderful: lots of birds, sunrise over the water, access to biking/walking path 1/2 block away, with city amenities of proximity to freeway and public transportation, etc. After several years of attempting to form community on our 40 acres in rural NW Washington, we have returned to California to live and work for 2-10 more years. We will probably return to the farm in the future. That project has a website http://www.cohousing.org/specific/dragonbelly/
