Hello all!

National Cohousing Open House Day this Saturday, April 24, 2021 3pm-5pm EDST. 

Two Mid Atlantic Cohousing (MAC) member communities are offering virtual tours 
of their communities: Juniper Commons in Harrisonburg, Virginia and Shepherd 
Village, in Sherpherdstown, West Virginia. You can sign up for their virtual 
tours here:

The Doctor is IN!  Meet "DOCTOR COHOUSING!" is a Q&A session w/ three members 
of the Board of Directors of Mid Atlantic Cohousing (MAC).  We support the good 
work of CohoUS, the regional cohousing communities and groups in Mid Atlantic 
Cohousing. This event is geared to those folks who are Beginning, Building or 
have Built a cohousing community. Inquirers, seekers, the curious ... old 
hands, new hands ... all are welcome.

Mid Atlantic Cohousing (MAC), our regional non-profit group, is offering this 
opportunity to have your questions, suggestions, ruminations answered by 
experts in the field. To wit, MAC invites you -- no matter where you live -- to 
meet the one and only:


Our panel of THREE COHOUSING DOCTORS will happily answer your questions on 
anything and everything cohousing:

What are the benefits of living in community?
How do I start a group?
How much does it cost to build a cohousing community?
How long does it take to build a cohousing community?
Do I have to share a bathroom or a kitchen?
What happens if you don't like one of your neighbors?
Are pets allowed?
Can I sell my cohousing home when I want to?
Where can I find cohousing communities?

Join our 2-hour Zoom event where we will endeavor to answer all your questions. 
Come at the top of the hour -- 3:00 p.m. -- to hear a special presentation by 
Daisy on "Current & Future Faces of Cohousing" with a brief history of the 
different names "cohousing" has had in history (self-organized, independent 
homes with shared spaces, Block-housing in Chicago, La Pueblo, Tradition of 
LGBTQ "cohousing”).
