Presentation: FARM WHERE YOU LIVE at Park Slope Food Co-op, Brooklyn NY

May 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Is Cohousing For You?

Grow food right where you live, and share in a farming enterprise that provides fruits and vegetables for a CSA. Own your home but share common spaces, meals & activities.

This presentation illustrates examples of currently functioning cohousing communities that follow this model, as well as one that is almost ready for move-in, less than 2 hrs from NYC. View slides and talk with experienced farmers and permaculture experts who are transforming 33 acres of land in CT into an organic farming cohousing community.

  • Know your food, grow your food – organic farm

  • Energy-efficient and sustainable homes

  • Child, animal, and pedestrian friendly

  • Own your own home and share many common spaces & meals

  • Designed to foster human interaction

  • Active involvement in the management of the community


Brenda Caldwell ran a CSA vegetable farm based on organic practices and permaculture concepts. She is now creating a whole farm plant and animal system at Rocky Corner that focuses on building resilient, carbon-rich soil.

Dick Margulis spent eighteen years growing organic vegetables, herbs, and flowers, beginning in 1975.

Richard Wilber is a gardener certified in permaculture, and a woodworker and painter. He believes that living in community and growing our own food is important for the health of our planet.
