Cohousing swap on offer - Portland, Oregon, USA

Jo Gooding's picture
I'm looking to trade homes for a month or two to give me a chance to spend some time in the UK.  I live in a lovely cohousing community here in Portland, Oregon called Cascadia. Here are pictures of my unit; you will get a feel for the whole place by looking at our cohousing website.

Dutch family would like to visit a cohousing community this summer. Can you offer?

I am living in Dutch cohousing project. We have 60 families here, living in 10 different groups. We don't have any philosophy, religious or political stance here, we do have lot of informal mutual contacts, but if we want we can keep a distance also.

I am a single father of Indy and Wesley, a boy and a girl almost three years old now. I think it would be nice to see a UK cohousing project, if possible with young children also.

Want to talk about cohousing for Univ. of Manchester research project?
