I'm forwarding this message in case anyone out there is looking for this
kind of experience. It is about community, but not cohousing. So if you're
not into off-topic stuff, delete this. But it might be a source of both
education about building and community for someone so inclined.

Big Sky Farm is a project serving autistic individuals and their families
via teaching alternative building techniques with an amazing twist.   Apply
to Big Sky Farm for participation at a low fee and not only learn and build
a cottage on-site, but you can "live" on the farm for 12 months if you
devote 15-25 days of work/build days on the farm after you are trained.
These structures will ultimately be educational and living facilities for an
autistic community.  Specific methods include papercrete, earthship, cob,
and various uses of creative timber.
Small weekend workshops are offered as well.  Great opportunity for
students, retirees, and anyone who wants an adventure.    Go to  for explicit details and education concerning
autistic spectrum disorders.

Thank You for spreading the word,
