We live in a fast paced modern world, where the role of meeting all our children’s needs is largely left to the nuclear family. With the demise of extended families and community living we must now make a conscious effort to build our own village in which to raise our children. Being surrounded by a community of like minded people brings diversity and support and makes the job of parenting so much more fun! In our Building a Community section you will find articles on living in cohousing, how to create your own community and starting a fruit and vege cooperative. You can also read of how others have turned their community vision into reality.
