I encourage people to think of cohousing to be part of the intentional community spectrum tho I think it is is reasonable to make distinctions between types of community in the degree of collectivity. I think the article does a fair job of that. One part of the article does seem open to (I suspect) misinterpretation: >From the article: > Songaia ... residents pay a monthly fee to cover the cost of shared > meals and food from a communal pantry At Songai does each household have a "flat" fee for meals and food or is it proportional to number of meals eaten as in most communities? How many common meals per week do you have? Fred -- Fred H. Olson Minneapolis,MN 55411 USA (near north Mpls) Communications for Justice - My new listserv org.
