Over 30 years ago I lived in a community at St Pauls Anglican Vicarage. Tim Gummer was one of those people, and we have recently reconnected around contemporary Co-Housing in New Zealand – what goes around comes around it seems.
Tim is behind a small group in Auckland, and set up a facebook group.
In late December he set up a website http://cohousing.org.nz/ to help develop an ecosystem for communities in New Zealand to connect and develop, as a new generation of cohousing emerges here.
It’s early days for the site but like a few properties it’s… ‘full of potential’. Check out http://cohousing.org.nz/communities to see a wide range of formative communities: rural &urban, small &large, site hunting & secured. You might just find a project you want to be part of. The Viva Community and the New Brighton Sustainable Coastal Village are both there.
