You’re invited to join us for an introduction to Cohousing and Panel Discussion

Tuesday, March 13 from 6 to 8 p.m.

East Flagstaff Community Library

Please join us to learn about the concept of cohousing and its many benefits, including social support, environmental sustainability, and a stronger sense of community.  Our panelists have lived in cohousing communities in Arizona, California, and Denmark.  We hope you’ll bring your inquiring minds, your families, and your interest, and we invite questions for our panelists.

  • Karen Enyedy, editor,  writer, researcher, and stalwart supporter of the Museum of Northern Arizona, has over 16 years of experience as a member of the Milagro Cohousing community in Tucson, AZ.

  • Bea Cooley, one of the founding members of Flagstaff Cohousing, lived in one of the early cohousing communities in Davis, California, and is committed to making this dream a reality in Flagstaff.

  • Joy Knudsen lived in the Danish cohousing community Trudeslund ( with 33 households for three years in the 1990’s, when her children were small.  During that time, she served one year on the Board of Trudeslund and gained insight into the administration and decision-making of the community.
