Does your cohousing community have retreats or other community building
workshops for its members? If so, at what frequency and duration? Are they
on-site or away?  Are members required or highly suggested to attend? What
are some topics you have used? How are they funded--through dues or other
means?  Thank you for your input.

Peace, Marilyn
