We first began working on Waterloo Region Cohousing Project about 2 years ago. In advance of our first open, public meeting, I did a 7-minute interview on the CBC Radio local morning drive show. It was a broad-strokes teaser broadly defining cohousing and talking about community, sustainability, green construction, CSA, etc. The next week we had over 100 people show up at a gathering at the local, public library. They were from about every walk of life. Over time, we have whittled the size down as the vision, mission, and values of this particular group became clearer. NPR tends to serve a similar demographic to CBC. I don’t know if you have a local affiliate but we found this was a really useful way of contacting new and diverse people. Cheers, Al Parrish
