Cohousing on PBS NewsHour
"Cohousing Communities Help Prevent Social Isolation"
PBS HEALTH | February 2017

Take a sneak peek inside Denmark's Saettedammen, the first cohousing in the world, as well as Rocky Hill Cohousing in Massachusetts. In the interview, you'll hear from a Harvard Professor who's an expert on aging, as well as a full age-range of residents.

You don’t get up some day in the morning and say, “You know, I think this is the day I’m going to have a community.” You know, you build a community.

Read full article here (click below to watch the video) and join us in building our nearly sold-out community at an upcoming site tour, potluck or presentation.

Fair Oaks EcoHousing will be a neighborhood of 30 homes on 3.7 acres in Fair Oaks, CA, 18 miles east of downtown Sacramento.   

Come see the site and our architectural plans, and meet our members at an upcoming tour. Kids are welcome. 

Meet at 10:30am at the Fair Oaks Coffeehouse in Fair Oaks Village, at 10223 Fair Oaks Blvd, at the intersection with Park Drive. Look for us on the side of the Coffeehouse, in the patio area or in the building at the back.

We can carpool to the site. The tour will last about an hour, with an optional lunch afterwards at the Siam Patio Restaurant or the Smokey Oaks Tavern.
