Quick garden break this morning… I adore how much my little gardener loves going into the garden. We’re about to have a cucumber and tomato explosion… Can’t wait to make pickles and can some of our tomatoes!
Tonight we picked Mulberries from our favorite tree. As my daughter ran to the tree ahead of me she placed her hands on her heart, and said “Thank you tree. Thank you for the berries. I love you tree.”
While we’ve only been here three years, in a way, she has grown up with our Mulberry tree. It was one of the first memories we made here —picking the berries after dinner one evening.
And while there are other fruit trees we so lovingly send our gratitude to, this one holds a place in our hearts, and I am certain our Mulberry tree holds a place in its heart for my daughter and her beautiful spirit too.
Here’s our latest Vlog:
In case you haven’t been following us on YouTube, we now have a Vlog! Here is our most recent episode:
We have some very exciting new developments here at Monterey CoHousing Community… On June 29th, we signed a letter of agreement to launch the EXPANSION DEVELOPMENT PROCESS!
Yes, you read that right.
MoCoCo is GROWING!
At the monthly Board meeting on June 24, through our consensus process, the Board agreed to move forward and contract with Urban Works for a concept plan. We also set aside a funding structure to pay for this plan, soil borings, and the continuing cost of developing. By creating a “builder” level of affiliation to MoCoCo, new families and residents will be able to make decisions in the design and building process. I think typing that out makes me a real grown-up now!
Urban Works Architecture is working up a concept plan for the construction of up to EIGHT NEW UNITS, likely a combination of townhouses and flats, along the southeast section of our property.
If you are interested in joining our beautiful community, NOW IS THE TIME!
Our next open house will be this Sunday, July 29th from 1 to 2 pm. Immediately after this tour + Q & A we will have a short break and then a presentation of the first draft of the concept plan by Bart Nelson of Urban Works. This should take about an hour or so depending on questions.
For those who would like to hang out with a little longer to get to know our community better, we will be having a community meal at 6 pm. The cost for the meal is $5 per person and $2.50 for 12 and under. It is a great time to see how community meals at MoCoCo work and get a taste of the Co-Housing lifestyle!
Please RSVP with the number of people attending the meeting and/or the meal on our CONTACT US page. Let us know if you will be needing any childcare during the meeting. Also, if you are interested in beginning the membership process and purchasing a new unit but are not able to attend this meeting please let us know through our CONTACT US page and we can keep you in the loop.
Looking forward to seeing many of you on the 29th as our community embarks on this new adventure!
