Cohousing Down Under

[caption id="attachment_976" align="aligncenter" width="413" caption="Earthsong Eco-Neighborhood"][/caption] Last summer I was contacted by Jeremy Rose of Radio New Zealand to do an interview for his radio program called Ideas.  At the time, I'd never done a phone interview for radio and I recall feeling like I was rambling on and on about cohousing...but he did a good job editing it down to a coherent interview and including other "experts" who are local to their island nation.  You can listen to the full interview here:

Also featured on the program was Earthsong Eco-Neighborhood, a cohousing community based on principles of permaculture.  They were established in 1995.  Great to see people realizing their goals for social and environmental sustainability.
