Interested in learning about cohousing from the ground up? Twin Cities Cohousing Network is offering this free 3-part workshop. Review housing terms, the kinds of housing ownership and then get into the options beyond what's normally talked about. Nothing is assumed, no one is left behind.

This is a participatory workshop, so that means being willing to show up and engage. Come as you are and turn that video on if you have it! Share your lived experience, meet and learn with others in breakout sessions.

There'll be short videos to watch and some content to read ahead of time. Have kids? Cohousing's usually multi-generational. Maybe you can get your kids involved in reading and summarizing for you.

Unlike so many webinars, the course facilitators are not selling a product or representing anything for sale. This free, stand-alone 3-part workshop series is part of Twin Cities Cohousing Network's nonprofit educational mission to provide information and experiences so people can decide whether cohousing might be for them, and to help those who are interested get ready for cohousing.

Details and registration link here:
Hurry! Registration ends September 15th.

Course facilitators: Linh Do and Lynn Englund
