The cincinnati Ecovillage group is exploring buying 4 acres of property in the city adjacent to a 32 acre organic farm and 18 acres or woods purchased by the Cincinnati Waldorf School. We have invited the building committee from the school to our December 15th meeting to present their building plans and to begin a discussion of how a cohousing community might fit with their design and school curriculum. They have been awarded a grant to develop environemtnal curriculum and they hope to encorporate the working farm into their curriculum. A Walddorf family is starting to attend our meetings.

The down side of the property that is is still for sale is that it is in the shadows of a huge television tower and only accessible from a very busy street. We hope that there is some way to share egress through the road the school will build and/or get involved in the trade of land they have worked out with the farmer so that he gets some of their woods and they get the back flat meadow to build.

We too would welcomes any other group's experience bringing together a school and a cohousing community.

Dear Cohousing Folks,

Anyone know of a cohousing project with the express purpose of education? Or even better, a school with cohousing as a fundamental supportive means? I don't need much out of geography besides great teachers and I'm tired of paying exorbitant property values to gamble at getting them. Would love to band together with other energetic parents on this issue. Start a micro-school, recruit great teachers, live near a thriving school, homeschooling, or preferably all of the above.

P.S. Now searching among Cohousing and Sudbury schools to find if they intersect anywhere on the planet:
