Caroline and Nick discovered cohousing by watching the movie “Happy.” This prompted them to look for our community. They were able to rent a unit until one became available to buy.

Corvallis has a population of roughly 55,000, and somewhere between 4-5,000 folks showed up for the Science March. This made it difficult to locate the many non-CoHo friends we expected to see at […]
The 2016 CoHo retreat was held at Camp Whispering Winds on the weekend of September 17th.
