Collective Houses Workshop Series Planned

Vancouver Collective House Network is in the formative stages of creating a Collective Houses Workshop Series for 2011/2012.

So far, in preparation for this Series, we have solicited ideas from folks about what they'd like to learn about, we've talked in person and over email about logistics with a recognition of how much we personally take on, and we've brainstormed a list of topics to pursue.

TOPICS for the Collective Houses Workshop Series include...but are not limited to:
  • How to Start a Collective House
  • Supporting Diversity in our Communities: Inclusive Collective Houses
  • Social Permaculture and Collective Houses
  • Collective Houses for kids & families
  • Creating Togetherness (Music, food, projects, etc)
  • Collective Decision Making: Meetings, Consensus & Communication
  • Building a Greywater System
  • Low Impact Living in Collective Houses
  • Non-Violent Communication (NVC) and Collective Living
  • Potluck music jam & Collective Living Celebration!
Format for the workshops varies topic to topic, and will include panel discussions, presentations, and hands-on experiential learning.
