Date and Time

There is increasing recognition that living in community can be a better, healthier option. Combating loneliness and the opportunity to share resources are among the benefits mentioned frequently.
Eugenie, founder of Green Fabric, recently attended the Cohousing conference in Portland Oregon to connect with fellow professionals and residents to discuss and learn more about what it takes to build it, live it and sustain it.
Starting with what cohousing is, at this event Eugenie will share stories and lessons from the conference and also the 500 Communities Program through which she is affiliated with cohousing guru Katie McCamant from Cohousing Solutions.
Cohousing is redefining the American Dream. Can it also redefine the Australian one? What will it take to build a cohousing community here?

We are a growing network of current and aspiring residents, professionals and other like minded supporters and stakeholders.
