Here's some information on a vegetarian cohousing group that has gotten started in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area of Minnesota. You may recall that Pam send out a message in December 1996 about wanting to form a vegan cohousing group. This update is a result of those initial contacts and we now have about 8 interested people and more who haven't been able to attend a meeting. Contact me with questions or post them to the list, if applicable. Eric Hart Minneapolis, MN VEGETARIAN COHOUSING IN THE TWIN CITIES MARCH 1997 A vegetarian co-housing community (Veg Co-Ho) is in the initial forming stages. The community is seeking to provide affordable urban (apartment co-op) housing, vegan common dinners and a shared common space including dining, kitchen, library, laundry, exercise area, workshop/tools and perhaps a garden area. The group has just begun to form and wants to grow to at least 8 parties. Usually, a co-housing group meets for at least a year to discuss and plan, so this is not an immediate decision. The group, Veg Co-Ho, wants to determine if there are enough interested people in the Twin Cities area to make it possible to buy an existing apartment building (8 - 12 units) in Minneapolis or St. Paul. The current members of Veg Co-Ho have 'met' via e-mail and have held several planning sessions. COST The Veg Co-Ho group wants to buy an existing apartment building to keep the community very affordable and urban. This will be an owner occupied community, so we can expect a realistic downpayment for the building and monthly expenses less than, or similar to, city rents. Veg Co-Ho's vision is a co-housing community in a co-op apartment setting.
