Hello all -- Here at Groundswell Cohousing at Yarrow Ecovillage, we suspect that we may have the highest proportion of children of all North American cohousing projects. Someone suggested that I ask this list to find out :-) As of the latest baby two months ago and before a family with three kids move out next month, these are our stats: *33 homes (sort of 36 due to "the quad"); regular mix of small and large units (18 small 2-bedrooms) *47 kids aged 0-16 (24 have at least a small percentage of their custody elsewhere; I would say 3 are mostly elsewhere, 2 are evenly split, and 19 are mostly here) *58 adults 19-late 70s It does feel like a lot of children -- it feels like at least 30 of them, but since there are actually 47, they must be rather quiet and well-behaved! Any other child-abundant communities? What is a typical number? Thanks, Beverly (mother of three sons ages 6-13)
