If you are new to cohousing, this session is for you and can help you have a more successful conference experience.

Cohousing architects Grace Kim (Schemata Workshop) and Laura Fitch (Fitch Architecture + Planning) will review the characteristics of cohousing, commonly used vocabulary (aka jargon), governance structures, cohousing resources, benefits of cohousing, examples of built communities, how to navigate the conference, and who’s who in the cohousing world.

The same session will be offered on both Friday and Saturday to make sure all who are interested can attend.
