Upcoming events — and this just in: https://njmonthly.com/articles/jersey-living/the-jersey-utopians/ (More on this below).
JULY . . .

Join us on Sunday, July 29 for a special visit to the Threefold Community in Chestnut Ridge, NY. We’re arranging carpools for this visit. Let us know if you can be a driver, if you need a ride, or if you just intend to meet us there.

Located on 140 wooded acres, the Threefold Educational Center is at the heart of a community of programs and institutions that teach and promote forward-thinking practices in education, agriculture, the arts, spirituality, and social life. The surrounding complex includes Green Meadow Waldorf School (400 students, grades K-12), the Pfeiffer Center (environmental education, biodynamic agriculture, and organic beekeeping), Eurythmy Spring Valley (movement art), Sunbridge Institute (Waldorf teacher education and adult anthroposophical studies), the Otto Specht School (Waldorf education for children with learning differences), the Fiber Craft Studio (healing senses and soul through work with plants and natural fibers), the Fellowship Community (home for the aged), and the Hungry Hollow Co-op Natural Foods Market.

Time: Noon to 4 p.m.
Location: 285 Hungry Hollow Road, Chestnut Ridge, NY 10977

Chestnut Ridge, NY is just north of the border between New Jersey and New York State (it’s close to Upper Saddle River, NJ) . . . so it’s about a 40-minute drive from most points in northern NJ and about 80 minutes from most points in central NJ. Our carpools will assemble in Chestnut Ridge at noon so that we can enjoy our usual pot-luck luncheon together. Bring picnic-type food! Then we’ll tour the community and the complex between 1:00 and 4:00.

AUGUST . . .

Save the date! Saturday afternoon, August 18: Summer Extravaganza Celebration and Fundraiser, with singers Elaine Silver, Kathy Moser, and others. More information coming soon, so stay tuned.


A bunch of us will be going up to the Northeast Cohousing Summit Sept. 21-23 to spread the word about EVNJ. Early-bird registration discounts are available now.

Amherst, MA is only three hours away. The conference is very informative (and fun, too!). We encourage you to join us there: http://www.cohousing.org/ne2018
