People can learn what cohousing is before they buy a unit like the ones in the photo above being built and sold in Yarrow at the Ecovillage.


ave you ever dreamed of taking over a cul-de-sac and selling each unit to a friend?  (Introduction to Cohousing by cohousing co-founder Chuck Durrett).

Have you ever dreamed of taking over a cul-de-sac and selling each unit to a friend? Or buying out an apartment building and saving space for a community room?


People today are disenfranchised with the suburban drive-for-everything mentality. There is a craving for communities where a cup of sugar goes back and forth, and children can play outside.


Cohousing is a form of resident designed communities that is working to provide residents with a strong sense of community. Learn how cohousing works and meet some people who have actually succeeded in building their own custom neighbourhood.
