What is Cohousing? How Ordinary People Can Build an Extraordinary Neighbourhood
Feb. 23, 7:00 pm
Wise Club Hall, 1882 Adanac Street, Vancouver
Have you ever dreamed of taking over a cul-de-sac and selling each unit to a friend? Or buying out an apartment building and saving space for a community room? People today are disenfranchised with the suburban drive-for-everything mentality. There is a craving for communities where a cup of sugar goes back and forth, and children can play outside. Cohousing is a form of resident designed communities that is working to provide residents with a strong sense of community. Learn how cohousing works and meet some people who have actually succeeded in building their own custom neighbourhood.
Architect and author Chuck Durrett will present his informative and inspiring slideshow on how ordinary people around North America are successfully creating the kinds of communities they want to live in.
Chuck Durrett has helped create numerous cohousing communities, including the Windsong community in Langley and the new Groundswell community in Yarrow.
Admission: $10 at the door, by donation.
