If you haven’t taken the time to learn about the Blue Ridge Cohousing neighborhood (now a bad link), listen to this interview on WVTF with some of the folks who will be living there. Interview here (yet another bad link). Or
here, on a new test site I’m working on.
Cohousing combines private homes with the security and interconnection of an old-fashioned village. Benefits include:
• deeper connections with neighbors
• sustainable, environmentally friendly homes
• pedestrian-friendly pathways, and
• a healthy balance of social interaction and privacy.
You can learn more about cohousing at cohousing.org.
Update: WCAV has a story as well: this link disappeared somehow. Good lord.
