Did you know that Good Tree Village is a member of Mid-Atlantic Cohousing (MAC)? MAC is a non-profit “organized for the expressed purpose of educating and informing the public at large and those folks actively engaged in cohousing about the benefits and challenges of forming, building and living in cohousing.” One of the ways we are planning for success (inshaAllah / God Willing) is by learning from and working with others who have already been where we’d like to be: spending the rest of our lives in a community that eats together, works together, and shares together.
At the end of the meeting we brainstormed about what exciting programs, events and activities we could we could provide for folks in the DC Metro area next year. A cohousing film festival? Workshops on getting the community built? Programs on consensus decision-making and governance? What would you like to see from MAC in 2013?
