Why co-housing

The problems: We are in the midst of a national housing crisis, with rising social inequality and the growing threat of climate change amid diminishing natural resources.

The solutions: An eco co-housing community will enable us to share resources, reducing waste and our carbon footprints. With a diverse, intergenerational community that contributes to social cohesion, reducing isolation and increasing health and well-being.
