Gagetown NB Senior Cohousing

I am starting a new Senior Cohousing Group in the Village of Gagetown, New Brunswick. The first formal meeting has been set for 7.30 p.m. in the Anglican Church Hall, Monday 4th March 2013. We are fortunate in already having an available and inexpensive serviced site of several acres in the village core, so the project is off to a good start. I intend to use Charles Durrett’s Senior Cohousing Handbook as our basic approach, and find Chapin’s Pocket Neighborhoods as good a guide to physical development style as one could want. E-mail me, Tony Ratliffe, at ratliffe@nbnet.nb.ca if you want more details.

    I am 65 in December. I am trying to find affordable housing with a group of like-minded folks. I would appreciate to learn more about your cohousing.
    I travelled to New Brunswick a few years ago and really liked how well you kept the roads and how easy it was to get around your province. I really loved the national park and Shediac as well as Fredrickton. A while back I went across Canada (when I was 49) and camped and so had a chance to go around New Brunswick. I like to swim outdoors in the summer. I like to garden. I do have a cat.
    Thank you. Lynda Boyd
