Re: Frustration in Forming Community

Hi all -

I glimpsed a group, Blue Heron in Pittsboro, NC, that grew out of an extended 
group of friends that met together every Friday night for a long time before 
a significant portion of the group decided to get land and found a community.  
My dad and step-mom were part of the original discussion group (but not Blue 
Heron), and some of the Friday night meetings were at my dad's house, so I sat 
and listened sometimes.  The group started with strong Scott Peck principles 
- I'm not sure what they've evolved into.  That's where I first heard of 
cohousing - years before I got involved with Eno Commons.

So, if you want more information about how a group successfully navigated 
from discussing community to being an intentional community with mortgages and 
all, you might try contacting Blue Heron. They have a web site, and it may 
be linked on the page.
