Date: Tue, 7 Jul 2009 08:21:19 -0700 (PDT)
What: Cohousing and EcoVillage possibilities / SF Backyard
Neighborhood & School?
When: Monday, July 13, 6:30 PM
Where: Cal Pacific Medical Center, near N-Judah MUNI, Castro St.
Price: Free (donations requested for the space)

This meeting is intended to bring together people with similar visions
of more cooperative and ecologically sustainable neighborhoods in San
Francisco. The organizer, an East Bay Cohousing (EBCOHO) member, is
hoping to find people who want to discuss creating a Backyard
Neighborhood and School in San Francisco, preferably with many
permaculture aspects, but other attendees may wish to discuss other
San Francisco cohousing and EcoVillage possibilities, such as senior
cohousing or a green co-op with rental units modeled after L.A.

This will be an open-space format meeting: Attendees with particular
interests or information will announce subjects that will be open for
discussion in various areas of the room, and then everyone will move
to the areas where discussions that interest them are occurring. For
each group, if someone will write down highlights of the discussion,
Kelly (the founder/burning soul) will email the highlights to the
people who request them. She will also have forms with optional survey
questions about the attendees' community visions and preferences,
which could be used to help bring together people who might want to
start an intentional neighborhood together.

If you'd like to see EcoVillages all around the world without leaving
San Francisco, don't miss EcoVillage News publisher Diana Leafe
Christian's slide show this Thursday evening at the Commonwealth Club
downtown. And to learn how to create your own, you'll want to be at
Diana's weekend intensive workshop in Berkeley. And don't forget the
meeting this Friday evening at Swan's for Downtown Oakland's
shovel-ready cohousing seeking investors and serious founding members
(just 12 minutes on BART from downtown SF and extremely affordable
compared to most SF homes), as well as the East Bay Cohousing Crawl
walking tour Sunday ending up at a potential 'Instant Cohousing'
existing-building apartment in North Oakland near Piedmont Ave. with
seller financing, and openings at several area collectives, co-ops,
and group houses, not to mention a home for sale nextdoor to Berkeley
