So its a horse race - which of the three Pre-Conference Tours will sell out next? http://www.cohousing.org/2009/tours Will it be the full-day Wednesday tour that visits Sharingwood, Songaia, and Bellingham Cohousing ($105 for the full day)? Many on Coho-L have heard a lot about about Sharingwood (where Rob Sandelin lives) and Songaia (where I live) - both are unusual communities in different ways. And Bellingham has very interesting stories - one I've heard (but not tried to document) is that the City of Bellingham made Cohousing-specifc zoning changes. Bryan Bowen, an accomplished Cohousing architect is your guide for this one. Or will it be Thursday, with two half-day tours visit Puget Ridge, Duwamish, and Jackson Place Cohousing ($60 for a half day). The City of Seattle hosts these three "urban" communities. All have beautiful sites and similarly fascinating stories and offer some excellent lessons for anyone considering building, including a significant cautionary tale. Cohousing activist and legend, Joani Blank, will be guiding this tour. In descending order, the current numbers are: Thursday afternoon: 80% full Wednesday all day: 66% full Thursday morning: 34% full So, are you going to bet on the current leader, the City of Seattle afternoon tour, selling out first? Not me, for soon I'll be sending out an email to the 300+ people on Songaia's private announcement list letting them know specifically about the Wednesday tour - and not many know much about what's included on that tour... heh heh On the Wednesday tour, Songaia will serve tour attendees lunch in our common house dining room. This will give more people that chance to learn about our rare food program - which all residents and some of our neighbors enjoy. We share 5 common house meals/week. Visit our 3 pantries, from which families can also take food to our private homes (with no accounting for who takes how much)... all for a cost of $99.50 per adult. How do we do this? Come find out from my neighbors who love to talk about food.
