The National Geographic (online) has a lovely article by Christina Nunez on how cohousing communities save energy while fostering a greater connection among residents. She focuses on The EcoVillage of Ithaca NY and Belfast EcoVillage in Maine. Takoma Village in Washington, DC gets a nice mention. Right under the headline is an impossibly dramatic "winter spiral" photo taken at the EcoVillage in Ithaca.
Heathcote Community, a 50-year old intentional community and permaculture demonstration farm, is seeking proposals from families or groups who would like to be Associate Members of Heathcote and rent Heathcote’s farmhouse for a year.

Mid Atlantic Cohousing is deeply involved in teaching the art of living in community. We are committed to the profound work of creating a sustainable society, one neighborhood at a time. In a world that often seems disparate, we take on the challenges of providing space and time that foster connection. To this end we provide direct educational services to our member communities. We also educate and inform the public about cohousing. Each year we provide an array of educational and informational events for member communities as well as those open to the public.
