Trish shares what is groundbreaking about CoHousing, an newer form of intentional community.  She also shares how her cohousing community has affected her family and neighbors. Trish is an educator, activist, parent and community co-founder.

Cohousing is just one point on a wide spectrum of communal living models, and it’s basically built around three principles: shared space, shared time, and shared values.Trish Becker-Hafnor
