The Foundation for Intentional Community is pleased to offer you the cream of our crop―the very best articles that have appeared over the last 20 years in our flagship publications: Communities magazine and Communities Directory. We’ve distilled what we consider the most insightful and helpful articles on the topics that you―our readers―have told us you care about most, and have organized them into 15 scintillating collections.

The Cohousing issue casts a wide net on the topic of creating and living within a cohousing community. Receive resources for connection, learn how cohousing contributes to the wider communities movement and visa versa, and discover the risks and rewards of living in cohousing. Authors take on its relationship to ecovillages and sustainability, and many others discuss and share stories surrounding the sometimes fuzzy understanding of what it means to “live in community” or cohousing.

Explore for yourself, or compare stories to your own experience. The Cohousing compilation will get you started in a down-to-earth and personal way.
