Canceled: Free Film Screening: The Best of Both Worlds, Cohousing’s Promise

This event has been canceled.

Save the date! On Wednesday, March 11th at 7:00 PM, the Berkshire Community Land Trust will host a screening of a short film on the benefits of cohousing called “The Best of Both Worlds: Cohousing’s Promise.” The screening will be held at Berkshire Community College’s South County Center located at 343 Main Street in Great Barrington.

Written and directed by John de Graaf in 2019, “The Best of Both Worlds: Cohousing’s Promise” explores the concept of cohousing –  an intentional community of private homes clustered around shared space and resources. The story profiles four cohousing communities in Northern California, including the first one in the United States and a senior community. The film features architect Charles Durrett, who brought the concept of cohousing to the United States from Denmark.

Following the film, the Berkshire Community Land Trust will facilitate a conversation about opportunities in our region for housing that’s affordable for young families as well as for retiring seniors.

The screening is free to the public with a suggested donation of $10 or 10 BerkShares. To RSVP or for more information please call (413) 528-4472 or email
