In response to Tree's encouragement, I'd am calling
for all forming communities or all other communities
who also would like to advertise nationally or
collectively support each others' advertising, as
described below, to please gather electronically by
emailing me individually.

The cohousing-l listserv seems to have postings mostly
from established cohousing communities; perhaps many
members of forming communities don't read these
postings. If you are a member of an established
community but know someone who might like to
participate in this effort, please forward this note
to them.
