Cohousing Coaches on Tiny Home Ecovillages at Valley Fire Phoenix Rising

vfprlogogatis.jpgWhat challenges and opportunities do you face in recovering from the Lake County fires?
Ever dreamed of more community in your life -- of knowing your neighbors, and growing relationships with people who care and share key values with you?
What could we do together that we can't do alone?
Join Phoenix Rising members and Cohousing Coaches Raines Cohen and Betsy Morris, in discussing how to rebuild Lake County using principles from resilient, cooperative, thriving intentional communities around the world.
Resilience is the ability to recover and thrive in the face of natural disasters, financial disasters, ongoing climate change, unequal economies, and uncertain futures.
Ordinary people are creating cohousing, ecovillages, and tiny home villages. Local officials and businesses are starting to see the need and importance of:
  • housing affordable to the current and next generation
  • earth-sharing and environmental commons
  • participatory design and governance of our human habitats
  • balancing privacy and sociability
  • building smaller homes with more common facilities
  • supporting locally owned and worker owned businesses
  • alternative finance and community currencies
In addition to serving individual clients and groups around the state and beyond, Raines and Betsy serve on national boards, frequently advise, and give talks at conferences. Raines and Betsy are also founders and community organizers of Cohousing California, a web site that supports five regional networks of established and forming communities (and several out of state), producing weekly events with and for over 4000 members. They are members of Slow Money Northern California, California Community Land Trust Consortium, Global Ecovillage Network, Fellowship for Intentional Community, Conscious Elders Network, Citizen's Climate Lobby, Participatory Budgeting Project-California, and SPUR.
