We’re growing into a tight-knit community, and we’d like to bring our next six households into the fray as soon as we can! If you’ve toyed with the idea of engaging: get to know us at a social event, a low-key way to see if the community might appeal to you.
Saturday, June 27 – 4:00-6:00pm
Quilchena Park – at 33rd Ave and the Arbutus Greenway – find us near the playground.
Socially distanced / please BYO food!
If you plan to attend, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you haven’t been able to meet us at one of our past events, or perhaps you did but want to know more, please join us at our February social. We will be sharing a meal, potluck style, from 6 – 8pm, on Thursday February 20 at 1068 West Broadway.
Kindly bring anything you want to drink and some food to share with the group. Children are encouraged to join!
This years cohousing conference will be held on Friday May 8 to Sunday May 10 at the Croatian Cultural Centre on Commercial Drive. The 2018 conference was hugely successful and sold out fast. This year’s expanded format is in a larger venue and includes two days of workshops and seminars.
Attendees can expect to learn about budgeting and bylaws, making sustainability work, how to set up car sharing, planning common meals and many other topics related to cohousing. You can find the full schedule here.
Along with our partner Tomo, OUV will be leading a session and describing how their partnership evolved and flourished. If you’ve been curious to know how cohousing is leading the charge in devising creative ways to establish environmentally and socially sustainable communities, look no further than this conference to learn and find out.
You’re welcome to arrive at your convenience — there will be opportunities to meet with our community members and discuss different aspects of the project throughout the session.
We’re a family-friendly community; child minding will be available within the room.
Our Urban Village is a multigenerational, family-friendly cohousing community about to break ground on our new home near Main & 41st. We’re recruiting new members!
Cohousing is a community centred around social connections. We privately own our individual units, while our shared common house and courtyard are the social heart. We’re committed to regular shared meals. We value inclusivity, diversity and enjoying our vibrant urban neighbourhood.
On December 8, we’ll be meeting at Main Street Brewing Co. for a brewery tour and beer tasting. If you are interested in joining the OUV community or interested in finding out more about cohousing, then this is a great opportunity to meet some of the members over a tasty brew.
We’ll be meeting at the brewery (261 E 7th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5T 0B4) at 12 noon for the tour which should last about 40 minutes. This will be followed by a flight of beer in the tasting room. Cost is $19 each. Kids are welcome.
If you are interested in joining us for this event, please contact us.
Located in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighbourhood, CHUC is an inter-generational urban community committed to sustainable living. During the morning session Sheila Hoffman and Spencer Beard will guide us through some of their decision making processes, do’s and don’ts, successes and pitfalls. This will be a great opportunity for existing OUV members to learn and plan our community, and anyone interested in cohousing to learn from their experience.
The morning workshop will be followed by a short lunch and a brain storming session.
If you are interested in joining us for the day or part of the day, please contact us.
