Episode 75: Four Corners

Intentional communities, draft horses, farmstead cheese… it all sounds a little bit Vermont.  That’s because it is!  This week we visit Cobb Hill, a co-housing community in the North East where communal has taken a more comfortable turn and appears to be doing very well.  Oh and I make Corn Chowder and Mirra Dances.

    That was wonderful. I’m retired now, but this would have been my dream, years ago. I’m so lucky to live in Vermont.

  10. Tasty-lookin’ soup, and second Austin below on the dancin’ and singin’. 

    I’ve often thought those that can manage communal living have something figured out that the rest of us don’t.
