A personal visit to a variety of cohousing communities offers you an experience that no photo, website or book can offer. To provide you with this opportunity, the Cohousing Association of the United States (Coho/US) sponsors daylong tours of cohousing communities in several areas around the nation.
An experienced cohouser or cohousing professional will take you to visit five to seven communities. As you travel between locations on a comfortable bus, the tour leader will give participants a chance to introduce themselves, share general information about cohousing, answer questions, provide fact sheets and site plans, and prepare you for your 40-minute visit to each community.
At each stop, a community host (often a long-time resident) will guide your group through his or her neighborhood and answer questions. Mid-day, you will receive a gourmet box lunch or a meal prepared in one of the common houses.
This bus tour will focus on the wonderful variety of Cohousing communities in San Francisco's East Bay. We are planning to visit Swan's Market, Temescal Creek and Temescal Commons in Oakland, then Pleasant Hill, Berkeley and Doyle Street (Emeryville) Cohousing communities. Our day will start and end at Swan's Market in Downtown Oakland. The cost is $95.00 per person. A delicious boxed lunch and lots and lots of information about each community will be included.
Register and pay fees on event website, don't just RSVP here! The tours often sell out early, only a few seats are left on this one.
