Monday, February 5, 6:00-8:00 p.m.
Sacramento Natural Food Coop: 28th & R Streets
Registration $15, $10 for Co-op Owners
The workshop will include an overview of cohousing followed by a panel discussion of resident experts, people living in or working to create cohousing in our region. These are true leaders in this movement to create self-governed communities throughout the country:
Stan Dawson of Glacier Circle Cohousing in Davis
Stan worked with members of the Unitarian Church in Davis to create one of the first senior cohousing communities in California.
Trish Ryan of Southside Cohousing in Sacramento
Trish purchased a home in Southside Cohousing in 2016 joining a long established cohousing community. She will talk about her experience as a newcomer and about what she has learned.
John Szostek of Fair Oaks EcoHousing in Fair Oaks
John is part of a new cohousing community now under construction. John will tell us about his experiences working to create a new community.
Kevin Wolf of N Street Cohousing, Davis
Kevin and his wife purchased two homes in Davis in 1986. Gradually they and their neighbors took down their fences and their community evolved till at this time it includes 19 homes. The community works to maintain a balance of owners, renters, young and old. Kevin has been a leader in developing an effective consensus decision-making tool that many other cohousing communities are using.
Anne Geraghty of Washington Commons will facilitate the discussion and questions and answers.
Come early and grab a bite to eat at the Coop’s extensive deli.
