- Cohousing friends,
Ken Norwood has decided to retire from doing these cohousing tours and
Karen Hester and I are taking them over for the rest of the year. In
future years we hope that the tours will be sponsored by The (North
American) Cohousing Network.
Bus Tour of S.F. Bay Area Cohousing Communities
Saturday, May 11th, 9:30-4:30
$65 includes lunch
Visit all six Bay Area Communities including:
· Swan's Market Cohousing--downtown Oakland
· Temescal Creek Cohousing--Oakland
· Temescal Commons--Oakland
· Pleasant Hill Cohousing--Pleasant Hill
· Berkeley Cohousing
· Doyle St--Emeryville
Tour leaders are Joani Blank from Swan's Market Cohousing and Karen
from Temescal Creek Cohousing. Joani, who also lived at Doyle Street
Cohousing for 8 years, is on the Board of The Cohousing Network and has
visited (at last count) 37 cohousing communities. Karen leads workshops
retrofit cohousing and is a founding member of the only retrofit
community in the Bay area.
The tour will begin and end at Swan's Market Cohousing in downtown
readily accessible by BART and AC Transit.
This is an excellent opportunity to meet others interested in both new
retrofit cohousing. Partial profits from this tour will go to The
Network. Karen and Joani will be leading a similar tour that will likely
include visits to communities in Davis and Sacramento on Saturday,
