Event description

Description

A free event for those who are curious about what makes cohousing different and who may have questions about what it would mean for them to be living in a community of like-minded people with similar values around sustainability and shared resources.
The day will be centred around talks, mini workshops, films and Q&A's, with a break for lunch at 1pm.
The focus will be on the benefits that other cohousing groups are experiencing in the UK and abroad, and also on providing up to date information about 'Hazelmead' - Bridport's own all affordable cohousing scheme. There will be an opportunity to look at the plans for the development and discuss the different options for buying or renting one of the ecohomes due to be built in North Allington in 2019.
