Dear All,

Welcome to new [to us] forming Albany community. There was a group up that way in formation years ago, back when we were still in development, maybe 10 yrs ago.... Albany/Schenectedy area, apparently they had a beautiful pice of land with streams; we've wondered what happened to those folks. Also, there was a group in Old Chatham [or one of the Chathams] and one of the members ended up living on that property. Maybe you'll find the trail of those folks, may still be interested.

As far as Jen's original query, Cantines Island CoHousing is in Saugerties, in Ulster County, NY. Been here almost nine years. We are 15 households, we have an Open House once a month [next: Dec. 2nd, 2:30PM] two building place available. We've referred folks to the Rosendale/Stone Ridge group, and look forward to hearing what name they choose!

Best of luck!

Subject: [C-L]_ NY state proposed community? Rosendale?

I read somewhere that a community was/is forming in Rosendale, NY. I have a friend who does not use the web, but wants to find out who to contact
about this community.

Do you have any searchable archives, or can you point me to someone who
would know about NY state cohousing, at or near Rosendale, NY?

Not Rosendale, but we are starting an ecovillage group in upstate NY, around
the Albany region.  We currently have seven families committed to moving
forward and are working on hammering out a vision this weekend.

We are very interested in finding likeminded others...
