Suvana Co-housing Project in CambridgePosted by Sadayasihi on Wed, 12 September, 2018 - 10:46
A group of Order Members and Mitras from the Cambridge Sangha have been meeting for about nine months with the vision of creating a different kind of community. They have formed the Suvana co-housing project - ‘Suvana’ meaning ‘happy realm’.
Tejasvini (chair of the project) writes: “We imagine living separately (own front door) but together (in the same street or square), with many other shared facilities.
It will be newly built, sustainable, low carbon footprint, the community inspired by Buddhist values.
There will be a mix of owner occupiers and some flats or houses for rent, some of them affordable, and a few almshouses. We are particularly looking for people who might want to be owner occupiers at this stage. We have about 20 people currently interested and envisage building 25-40 houses or flats.”
If you are interested you can get involved by emailing suvana.cohousing [at] gmail.com for a copy of their vision document and becoming a member (which costs £20). You will also be added to their mailing list.
