Paul Wehrwein, an cohousing enthusiast who has volunteered with Twin Cities Cohousing Network for a number of years on the Events Circle, is starting the process of creating a senior cohousing community (50+) in the west metro area. Paul and his partner have begun by inviting those people who might be interested in learning about each other to gather once a month with the goal of having fun socializing while getting to know each other and and sharing their ideals for what a senior cohousing community could be. Informal gatherings will be held rain or shine at the Como Park fire rings on the third Wednesday of the month at 6:00 P.M. Download the flyer for details and contact information for Paul.
Although Duluth is beyond the Twin Cities metropolitan borders, The Duluth area has a number of people interested in cohousing and Twin Cities Cohousing Network is happy to help inform our viewers about them.
Lee Pedersen, an active cohousing organizer has held MeetUp meetings in Duluth for a couple of years and has generated a number of regulars. According to Lee, a group seeking to create an intergenerational cohousing community has recently split off and is now hoping to purchase land.
Lee, who is specifically interested in senior cohousing, is now recruiting individuals who would prefer a senior-focused cohousing community that will help seniors thrive as they age in community with each other. Her new initiative is called Active Adult Cohousing for the Northland. Click the link to Lee’s information on Cohousing USA to see what she envisions and to find her contact information.
