March 2023

Fairly quiet month.

We re-established contact with Black Country Cohousing, who are interested in learning from our experience. I’m looking forward to a face-to-face meeting after the Easter Hols.

We took our proposed banner out to Handsworth High Street, outside the library, to get some feedback on its artistic merits, intelligibility and appeal. Some great feedback, mostly positive, with some notes on making the community group even more inclusive.

We chased EcoCocon (who market a straw panel building system) for an estimate of building costs for the community if we used them.

Cohousing West Midlands is (surprise) a cohousing project for the West Midlands! Cohousing is where everyone has their own front door, but there's also a community house for weekly shared meals and activities, and other shared spaces. More than a Housing Association, and less than a co-op!
