The 2012 National Cohousing Conference will be on the west coast this year and it’s only fitting that it will be in Oakland, CA. According to East Bay Cohousing — a Bay Area cohousing umbrella group — there are more cohousing communities in Oakland than in any other US city.
From June 13-17, there will be oodles of illuminating workshops and presentations from Bring a Forming Group Together and Senior Cohousing to Diversity in Cohousing and Sociocracy. Don’t sleep on the pre-conference workshops and community tours: they are like homemade buttercream icing on an organic free-trade chocolate cake. And a cohousing conference wouldn’t be a cohousing conference if there weren’t plenty of opportunities to connect, learn, share and even volunteer.
Whether you are new to cohousing or a cohousing resident, a part of a community-oriented group or city planner, architect or developer, you’ll find a wealth of knowledge as cohousing leaders and thinkers help us Learn From the Cohousing Experience and Create Sustainable Neighborhoods.
