The First Cohousing Community in Regina, Saskatchewan
Living in a cohousing community is a bit like having two homes, one nested inside the other. At Prairie Spruce Commons there are seven unique unit layouts and 21 unique households. Each household expresses their individual tastes in décor, cuisine, ambience, activities, schedules, entertainment, etc. In the Common House all these are also reflected, but this often requires more flexibility, while paying attention to the ideas and needs of others.
At Prairie Spruce Commons we practice consensus decision making. Sometimes this is smooth sailing and sometimes it is a bumpy ride, but we are strengthening our muscles for living cooperatively in the bigger world, which is also our home.
