Yes!! Earthsong Eco-Neighbourhood is alive and flourishing in Auckland. A 
couple of us lurk on this list, but as we are into our 5th year of construction 
(phew!), we haven't had much spare energy to contribute to the discussions so 
far. But our beautiful common house will be finished before Christmas and we've 
just started building the last 8 houses, so we're on the home straight. Which 
also means there are only 4 houses left for sale, but rental opportunities come 
up from time to time.

Our website is a good place to start.

  I recently joined the list and am grateful for all the helpful information
  that I've seen in the past week.

  We are in the process of relocating to New Zealand and would love to see if
  there are any NZ folks on the list.

  Our plan is to explore communities in the North Island around Auckland (and
  Coromandel area).  Anyone out there?

  If so, might we plan to meet in December or January?  And, do you know if
  there are any six-month rental options in your communities so that we may
  experience co-housing initially?

  Look forward to your replies. Please email me directly
  awsf2003 [at] .

  Kind wishes,


  P.S.  I found the NZ directory of co-housing locations too and will peek
  into that. :)
