Amazing article! This kid is a great writer, and is living an incredible 
idyllic childhood amidst chicken, calves, compost toilets, working farm. 

A far cry from our urban under-one-acre Berkeley cohousing!
PS -- article is in the "full issue" of New Moon, which is one of the first 
links you encounter. Search for PDF for "Gretta" and you will find it.

This is a wonderful, heart-warming article by one of the 1000+
Coho-Kids around the country.

I suspect that few of these young people have much "voice" outside of
their own communities (where their voices are so often loved and
appreciated by their neighbors).

It seems a shame that so many of the Coho-L conversations about kids
in Cohousing focus on the challenges, when there is so much joy and
wonder for young and old alike as we live our lives in community.

I’m Helen Cordes, editor of New Moon Girls, a national bimonthly
magazine by and for girls. I wanted to bring your attention to the
article on cohousing in our March/April issue, written by 12-year-old
Gretta Stack. She did a wonderful job of telling our 20,000-some
readers and online community members about cohousing life in the Cobb
Hill community in Vermont, which is also portrayed in some outstanding
photos. Please check it out—it’s on p. 12 of the free issue PDF here:

Thanks much! If you have any questions, let me know.
