BEGINS the event blurb: “What is cohousing? A lifestyle with roots in rural villages where resources are shared and people from different families live together.
“Not in a communal house, it’s not a commune – everyone has their own house or apartment within the community and you share spaces and facilities, and life’s daily events.
“Cohousing is a new type of neighbourhood planning that is very different from the communities that we are used to, i.e. family homes in suburbs and high-rise towers.
“But very much how people from yesteryear remember life. Whereby you look out for each other and work together to build a close-knit community based on shared values and common areas.”
