Last Sunday, eleven people representing nine households met to begin fully developing KfarDC’s vision. We discussed the core values we hope our community will exemplify. It was exciting to see individuals spanning several generations and coming from a diverse array of life experiences sitting together, visioning a community to share. The photo below includes some of the elements we discussed.
To help us move forward with building our vision, we decided to host a monthly book club, between April and June, where we will discuss Kathryn McCamant and Charles Durret’s Creating Cohousing. We hope that this book will give us the language and tools to develop a more expansive vision of our community.
In addition, KfarDC is now looking for volunteers to take on responsibilities to help build the community. At the end of our last meeting, two people (including me) volunteered to help with the communications aspect of building our community. In the coming weeks, we will be looking for volunteers to take on other responsibilities. The more participation we get, the more we can build a community that reflects a diverse array of needs and interests and the faster the work will get done!
Stay tuned for more information on how you can get involved!
