Excellent Article. Many thanks to Craig for forwarding the message and to Gretta Stack at Cobb Hill for writing the article. Which creates an idea. What was it that Margaret Meade said? Something about a few burning souls...? Some individual cohousing members have managed unit exchanges, swapping units across the country. At least one threw in his wife and family. How about a cohousing kid exchange, to offer an educational change in lifestyle for adventurous cohousing kids: an opportunity to try a home swap with a co-kid from some other coho community? Kid A from village A could visit with Kid B and Family B at Village B for a week, and then Kid A could return to spend a week at Kid B's home in village B for week 2. What a way to get out of the rut of just visiting the same relatives every summer? Just an idea for others to consider. My kids have already all moved to Norway.

I?m Helen Cordes, editor of New Moon Girls, a national bimonthly magazine by and for girls. I wanted to bring your attention to the article on cohousing in our March/April issue, written by 12-year-old Gretta Stack. She did a wonderful job of telling our 20,000-some readers and online community members about cohousing life in the Cobb Hill community in Vermont, which is also portrayed in some outstanding photos. Please check it out?it?s on p. 12 of the free issue PDF here: http://www.newmoon.com/magazine/ Thanks much! If you have any questions, let me know.
