Describing New York City's first cohousing project, a New York Times article said cohousing speaks to people who want to own a home but not feel lost in an impersonal city. That's how we feel.

And we want to live sustainably, with a smaller carbon footprint. To know our neighbors, grow some of our own food and use our united buying power to support local farmers and dairies. We want to model a more resilient way of life for the DFW metroplex.

We want to live in a diverse community, with old and young, singles and couples, varied backgrounds.

We're growing a community of like-minded folks who'd like to live cooperatively in urban Dallas, close to a DART station.

Our vision is that the community is affordable, with a lease-to-own option if possible.

We're at the forming stage, which means we're drawing together a core group of people willing to commit financially.

We've located some possible properties; the investor-members will determine which property works for our shared vision.

Meet other local people who are making their lives more sustainable--whether in leaps or tiny steps. We are interested in many areas of sustainable living: organic gardening, permaculture, starting a green community, homesteading, lobbying our political leaders to create a more sustainable environment, climate change, peak 0il, and preparedness.

Most of us are urban or exurban dwellers who are trying to create a positive impact on our environment and develop varied degrees of self sufficiency. Some of us are also interested in creating/moving to a sustainable eco-community.

If you are interested in living more sustainably in your own local area east of Dallas, please join us as we learn the way of green and simple. We will network with each other; we will have outside talks on sustainable living from Solar to Rainwater Harvesting, from Permaculture to Organic Gardening/Farming, and from green remodeling to energy-efficient new building; we will invite local officials to our meetings in order to make our towns more sustainable and resilient.

If you reside (or want to reside) east of Dallas in towns such as Rockwall, Royse City, Heath, Forney, Terrell, Quinlan, Greenville, Wylie. Murphy, Sachse, Rowlett, Sunnyvale, Lone Oak, or anywhere in that general area, please come learn to make life easier, less expensive, and more sustainable with those in nearby communities. This is the perfect area for a Transition Initiative bioregion!

Close to home--I am tired of driving to Dallas to meet like-minded people. Maybe you are, too???

Our goal is not just a sustainable, nutritious, abundant food supply, but also thriving ecosystems that support a diversity of life. In the next century,NRCS will not only continue to tackle familiar challenges like ensuring clean water and healthy soil, but will also rise to meet new issues, such as clean air, clean energy, climate change, and new technology.

- Chief Dave White

TCE is dedicated to informing and mobilizing Texans to protect the
quality of their lives, their health, their communities and the
environment. We believe that people have a right to know and a right to
act on issues that fundamentally affect their lives and future
generations.

TCE is a non-partisan, non-profit citizens' organization that focuses on local and state issues. TCE has organized award-winning
campaigns to protect our public health in Texas. Polls consistently
show Texans support policies to protect the environment and our quality
of life; TCE works to give Texans the opportunity to channel that
support into action.

Oftentimes we face opposition from
powerful interests that would resist changes that benefit our public
health. To fight organized money, we need organized people.
Contributions of funds, time and talent provide TCE with the necessary
resources to help Texans have a voice in the policy-making process. Each
member represents an educated and concerned citizen, so please join TCE.
