Cohousing communities are intentional, collaborative neighborhoods. They bring together the value of private homes with the benefits of more sustainable living. That means residents actively participate in the design and operation of their neighborhoods, and share common facilities and good connections with neighbors. The US Cohousing web site offers more information including the six defining characteristics of cohousing.
Who We Are
