The recently-published book, "Superbia! 31 Ways to Create Sustainable Neighborhoods" will be of interest to cohousers whose friends or family members like the idea of a more cohesive neighborhood but who can't/won't make the move to cohousing. The book presents actions that residents of a typical suburban (or urban) neighborhood can take to first create a social network, then begin to implement cohousing- and IC-like designs and behaviors, including buying a house in the neighborhood to use as a common building and common green and 30 other ideas. Update on the cohousing anthology compiled this year for Fulcrun Publishing, that includes great stories and photographs from 20 or more cohousing communities: it's at the publisher now and scheduled for September release, if it stays on track. We're still on the lookout for the perfect title for the anthology -- maybe something snappier than "REINVENTING COMMUNITY: Stories from Cohousing". Please let me know if you have inspirations about a title. Originally I had titles like "WE DID IT! Stories from Cohousing" on the radar screen, but opted for something that might describe in the title what we did.

Examples might be Utne Reader, Mother Earth News, or Communities Magazine. I'm sure you can think of lots of others. However, we don't have the financial resources to advertise by ourselves, and our ads in a national magazine would be very inefficient. Would it make sense for the forming communities to pool advertising money and advertise, with cohousing.org as the contact? I can think of some inequities/problems: --already built communities that have a unit or two to sell would get free advertising. --what would happen if some forming communities didn't want to chip in? One solution to the above would be for all the communities who want to advertise would to pool some of their advertising funds, using perhaps some formula based on # of members, # of units for sale, etc., and try it out, and have a separate web site where only they are listed. There could still be a link to cohousing.org for further info. I'm sure there are other creative solutions. Another way that we could pool resources is to start having some of the signs printed up nationally, that plugs cohousing.org, but has a space or pocket where local phone numbers could be slipped in. Then individual communities could buy and place as many as they wanted. Thoughts? Tom Hammer for Concord Village __________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
