Natural Neighborhoods: Eco- and Generation-Conscious

Whether you refer to developments as ecovillages, co-housing, or old-time neighborhoods, those in the know say this is the next trend in multi-generational housing. And the concept that originated in Denmark is now making a mark here in the USA.


Natural Neighborhoods

Envisioning multi-generational housing

We are just now seeing that it is a wonderful opportunity  in multi-generational housing.
for the White-Haired  among us (in  all its phases of becoming) - Baby Boomers like you and me.

We won't be alone at the age of eighty(80)  because Natural Neighborhoods: Eco-and Generation-Conscious  sustainable communities,  assure us that our neighbors hold a commitment to a relationship with one another and will look in on us.

Some have called this co-housing. I see it as a collaborative opportunity in which residents of all ages actively participate in the design and operation of their own neighborhoods. And I am excited because the group can sculpt the way it comes together.  You and I can envision communities with renewable energy systems that have both creature comforts and quality of life components- a cafe, a neighborhood organic market, a local artisans shop, a bakery, office and live-work space just off the road, and further up the hill, small, yet elegant abodes, townhomes and single-family residences all in a mixed-use, eco-development designed for sustainability and human-scale living.

janeAnne- I like this idea and not just because I'm in the Baby Boomer generation.  I remember that year's ago my mother-in-law had hope that they could someday take their farm land and turn it into a similar community.  This brings us back to the way it was so many years ago when we all took care of each other.

The more things change the more things stay the same.  It's nice to see this coming back around, as opposed to the way familes have become... so fragmented and detached from each other.
