I am hosting an informational session in Seattle in a couple of weeks and invite anyone in the area to attend. (And if you're not in the area but have friends who are, please forward this on to them). This is a general overview for those new to the concept as well as an opportunity for those who are interested in meeting others in search of community to find one another. There will be a slide presentation (with lots of photos of built communities in North America and Denmark) as well as a substantial Q&A period and chance to informally network. Where: First United Methodist Church (Fellowship Hall) 180 Denny Way, Seattle, WA When: Sunday, April 18, 2010 12:30-2:30pm More info and RSVP at www.cohousing0310.eventbrite.com <http://www.cohousing0310.eventbrite.com/> On a related subject: This past Fall I hosted a similar event, attended by over 60 people. As a result of that event, an Urban Seattle Cohousing group has formed (about 20 interested people). We are having monthly potlucks - our 3rd was last Sunday. Mike and I have a site and will be leading the design/development effort with input from future members. It has been a long time since a cohousing community was built in Seattle proper, and our model is REALLY urban, so its receiving a lot of local interest.
