This Community is Re-forming
Year re-formed: 2016-07-01
We came close to purchasing a property in 2012, but the group fell apart as our individual priorities became clear. We then began to re-form, energized by an article about Dallas Cohousing in the local paper.
To create a welcoming community based on cooperation and fun.
We’re growing a community of like-minded folks who’d like to live cooperatively in urban Dallas, close to DART rail.
Our goals: to be priced at market level or less, sustainable, and diverse.
Our models for living together include cohousing–homes for individual households, plenty of shared space & meals, decisions by consensus–and the ecovillage concepts of living in a socially, economically and ecologically sustainable manner.
We’re interested in possibly sharing:
• work space (for those of us working from home)
• a garden to grow some of our own food
• child care
• space for yoga, other kinds of movement
• home schooling
• a food buying club
• community-supported agriculture (CSA membership)
Our vision of retrofitting includes affordable energy efficiency and sustainability. E.g., solar-assisted hot water, rainwater reclamation, foam insulation under the roof.
