Thanks, Sharon; upcoming workshops are in Nashville and Honolulu (March); Boston (May); Olympai, WA (June); Washington, DC (July); Los Angeles (August), Portland, OR (September); NYC (October). Since I stripped out the web links when posting, we should mention that you can learn more about Tumbleweed at: http://www.tumbleweedhouses.com Jay Shafer says his book, titled "The Small House Book," will show you "how to build a small home for 20 grand." ... spending "under $65 a year on utilities." It's $20 to download online, or $29.95 including shipping for a softcover copy; both ("not available in bookstores") include a free set of blueprints for one of the designs. The site says the homes range from 65 to 837 square feet. > On 18 Feb 2011, at 3:05 PM, Raines Cohen wrote: > >> I just stopped by the great Builders Booksource store on 4th Street >> today (where I happened to run into Chuck Durrett and the Yarrow >> EcoVillage creators from Canada, but that's another story), and >> learned of this event tonight. And since I'm following up on my original message thread here, I'll just say, in reference to the bit about running into the Yarrow EcoVillagers from British Columbia: Hey, cohousers and community co-creators and seekers and visionaries and authors: when you're going somewhere, anywhere, PLEASE do check in with the local cohousers! Not only would we love to show you around and maybe even have you over to a common dinner if schedules coincide, we actually do have a bunch of people seriously looking for opportunities to invest as well as to live in community, and others eager to learn from what you're doing. We delight in shining our spotlight (and a bright one it is, bringing the attention of thousands of people, through our MeetUp group, weekly ads in the local alternative paper, and other outreach tools) on your plans, successes, and opportunities. It could well be worth your time out from whatever business or tourism takes you someplace, to deepen the connections, weave together the network, get inspired, and share in what you and your current or future neighbors are doing. This is still very much a grassroots movement, and our effectiveness and reach in the world will depend on how much we invest in building the capacity by actually using it. And of course, we love it because our people will listen to what you have to say -- even when you say the same things we do. There's nothing like novelty, distance, and repetition to bring credibility and attention to our key messages and learnings to share. Raines Cohen, (freshly minted) LEED(r) Green Associate & Cohousing Coach (passed my test this afternoon - I was at Builders Booksource picking up a study guide! I'm now preparing for LEED for Neighborhood Development accreditation) at Berkeley (CA) Cohousing where I'm hosting guests from La Querencia (Fresno, CA) at tonight's common dinner -- dinner bell just rang, gotta go!
