You can learn more about co-housing at a meeting this Friday at 7pm at the Abbotsford campus of the University of the Fraser Valley.  Basically, like minded people invest in land and a lifestyle together.  They share space, friendship, food,  and they share the load of living a busy family life.  Some seniors are also choosing to explore co-housing for both companionship and extended independence.



While we  might not like the "togetherness" of co-housing, knowing your neighbours can help save you money whether it be for shared childcare, tools or trips to the grocery store.
