Yes, you are right David, but it is all good! First - this date was set a
year ago, and we are committed to having the Open House on the last Sat in
April moving forward. Second - what a great offering on this climate
awareness day to provide visits to our cohousing communities, many of which
profile sustainability in action! Only a fraction of folks who would
otherwise participate in the tours will actually go to the march. So I see
this as a win-win!

Also, I encourage folks to read this "Climate Leading Communities" blog and
share with us your sustainable practices in community!

Please do sign up your community please to participate in the National
Cohousing Open House Day <>!
