Berkeley Moshav, a group working to create Jewish-centered cohousing, is inviting anyone interested in cohousing development to join it for a two-day intensive, with pricing designed to support whole-household participation.
This Getting-It-Built workshop, spread across two Sundays (4/23 & 30), provides vital guidance for forming groups on:
• Overview of the development process
• Finding a site
• Planning and designing a community
• Working through city approvals
• Hiring and managing construction professionals
• Financial realities (costs)
• Investment structures (raising the money)
• Financing options
• Ownership structures
• Keeping on track and on budget
The workshop will be led by Katie McCamant and Chuck Durrett, the nation’s foremost experts on cohousing. Katie and Chuck introduced cohousing to North America with their book, Creating Cohousing: Building Sustainable Communities, and have developed, designed, or consulted on more than fifty cohousing communities. This workshop shares best practices gleaned from their 25 years of experience, while paying attention to our community's unique location and situation. More North American cohousing communities have been started by the Getting-It-Built workshop than by any other method.
COST: $450 for the first adult from a household, $150 for the second. (Lunch and childcare are available for an additional fee. Video recordings will be made available to registrants.)
Important Note: EBCOHO is not the organizer, and RSVPing on MeetUp/CalCoho is NOT enough (but please do so to show others that you are planning to attend). Use the link below, and please tell our friends at Berkeley Moshav that you heard about it through East Bay Cohousing.
REGISTER: Go to the Berkeley Moshav website to join them on April 23 & 30 and learn how to get it built!
