About Sharingwood:

Sharingwood is a dynamic, evolving community. We are actively seeking to
become more inclusive and diverse and invite people of all backgrounds and
identities to come for a visit.

Sharingwood is a cohousing neighborhood of 28 homes northeast of Seattle.
Homes are privately owned, with some rental spaces, and an abundance of
shared amenities, which include: a 23-acre forested greenbelt with trails,
campground, and a stream; playgrounds and a playfield; productive community
gardens and fruit trees; and a community center called "the CommonHouse.”

This is a social neighborhood, where people strive to know each other and
work together cooperatively to care for each other and the property.
Community teams help maintain the physical and social life of the
neighborhood. These teams include:

   - Greenscape Team, which maintains the community garden, the common
   grounds, and trails and campgrounds in our greenbelt
   - Finance Team and Board, which serve many traditional HOA functions as
   well as cohousing-specific operations
   - Children’s Team, Dinner Team, and Social Team, which organize
   community dinners and activities like cookouts and parades

We also have ad hoc groups that reflect the interests and goals of our
residents. These groups engage in activities such as:

   - Holding fitness, yoga, and tai chi classes
   - Examining white privilege and racism, and working to create a more
   inclusive and diverse community
   - Creating community podcasts and newsletters
   - Assessing community resources for emergency preparedness (i.e., the
   Zombiepocalypse Team)
