8 Benefits of Joining our Friends List

I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff. – Jon Katz

Are you interested in cohousing but not at a point in your life where you are ready to live at Prairie Spruce?

Cohousing groups create social and cultural opportunities that individuals themselves may not have. As we’ve done regularly over the last year, Prairie Spruce can host speakers, musicians, artists and special events. We can also engage in initiatives and lobbying for better, more sustainable communities. While our common community voice and presence is stronger than that of any one individual, our voice would certainly benefit from your additional participation and involvement. Having more “Friends” makes our voice stronger. Plus, social events are more fun with more people!

8 Benefits of Joining

We expect many of our “Friends of Prairie Spruce” may not be prospective owners at Prairie Spruce but that shouldn’t prevent you from being part of the broader Prairie Spruce community and experience. For now, being a Friend would give you access to participate in:

  1. Workshops on group facilitation, active listening, & conflict resolution
  2. Organized group classes (yoga, beer making, cooking, etc,)
  3. Concerts, art shows and film screenings
  4. Lobbying for better community
  5. Special community potlucks
  6. Special early access “Friends Only” tours of our new homes
  7. Random acts of generosity, kindness and support (aka, friendship).

Plus, you’d get to meet and become friends with some of the best people I know in Regina!

Consider this your invitation to join our Friends of Prairie Spruce group. We’d love it if we could welcome you in person by joining as at our free screening of the Happy Movie this Sunday at the Cathedral Community Centre. If Sunday doesn’t work for you, please send us an email at prairiesprucecommons@gmail.com with the subject “Friends” and include your name, email address and phone number. We will create a special email list of our Friends and should you ever decide you want to be removed, you can easily unsubscribe. There will be no fee for becoming a Friend of Prairie Spruce (although there may be cost recovery fees for specific events).

Join us on our journey to the heart of community!
