Oct. 21, Oct. 28, Nov. 4 – Weekly Cohousing Discussion Group
October 21 @ 7:30 pm - November 4 @ 8:45 pm
Posted by New Hope Village & Farm
Our group is actively seeking to build a cohousing community near Nashville, TN and formed a reading group for anyone who is interested in learning more about cohousing. We also hosted a webinar presented by Dr. Sherry Cummings who spoke about Aging-In-Community. The video of that presentation was recorded and is available upon request.
We have been asked to provide more information about cohousing communities for people who think they might be interested in helping us build NHV & Farm. Here is a couple of references.
- Recent article in the Houston Chronicle about designing a cohousing community during the pandemic (link).
- A 10-min. TED talk by cohousing architect Grace Kim

Growing Inclusivity in Cohousing
This is a blog written by Rosemary Linares who identifies herself as living in a Midwest cohousing community. She describes a series of events that include conflict within her community, and the ways the community grappled with individuals’ personal histories and deep feelings underlying the events, as well as the evolution of decision-making rules over a number of years. https://www.ic.org/growing-inclusivity-in-cohousing-stories-and-strategies/
