It is an exciting time here at Prairie Spruce. We are awaiting the presentation of the results of our schematic design. This is our time to approve the work done by our talented architectural team. From here until we move in much of the building work will be done by others. That is good, we have a lot of work of work to do. We need to find the rest of our neighbours.
Tonight PSC had it’s first (of many we hope) Looper cocktail party. At a Looper cocktail party each person brings their own drinks and an appetizer to share. They bring their own dishes and glass wear and take their garbage and recycling home with them.
Henning and Joanne brought the tradition back from their trip last year when they did America’s Great Loop on their sailboat Flying Free.
Looper cocktails allows someone to host a group of people without it being responsible for all the preparations, the food and drinks, or the clean up. We would just gather on the largest boat in the marina to swap stories, advice, and laughter.
It’s a bit difficult to have true Looper cocktails in Saskatchewan at -25…but no one missed the sand in their shoes or wet bottoms from riding in dinghies.
On a cold Tuesday evening this previous week, Prairie Spruce held our first information session. It was held at the university of Regina and we had about twenty people who came to see what cohousing is all about. Dave Larue began the evening with a viewing of the new video from cohousing.ca and then presented a presentation entitled “What is cohousing”.
The presentation concluded with information about where and when Prairie Spruce is to be built. After a short break consisting of coffee and a delicious spread of baking brought by the members, we had a question and answer session. Questions about cost, where we knew each other from, why such a great idea only had 8 members, and about the common house were answered.
We left the meeting confident that we had several future associate members from amongst the attendees. We have already scheduled our next session for January 9 at Atlantis coffee. As this session has limited space we ask that all wishing to attend, register on EventBright by clicking “buy” on the right.
Prairie Spruce Commons is holding an information session about Co-housing, a better way to live. This session will include an explanation of what cohousing is; what a cohousing community looks like; rural and suburban communities; urban communities; what is in the common house; how cohousing is built; and our future community in Canterbury Park.
Atlantis Coffee House, 1922 Hamilton Street at 7:00
We have been invited to speak with Sheila Coles of CBC Radio. Tune in to the Morning Edition on Tuesday morning between 7 and 8am.

Prairie Spruce Commons (PSC) is ecstatic to announce that we have secured land for our future home. PSC will be developing the first cohousing project in Regina and it will be located in Canterbury Park. We look forward to developing a sharing, caring, and respectful community. PSC is looking for people to share in our community.
