The Cream of Our Crop
Elders in Community
by Kim Kanney, Community Bookstore Manager
Best of Communities Volume IX
$10 Digital, $15 Print
Arguably the most popular theme in the intentional communities conversation is about growing old in community. As the community movement matures, so do its followers (along with a beautiful new crop of young, enthusiastic folks too). The Community for Elders compilation highlights stories and common topics of interest for people young and old alike. You will find a story of a three generations family living together in an ecovillage. You will also read of stories about how some have dealt with change over time, and how others have embraced aging and illness. Authors answer if they can grow old, find support, and feel productive in community. Finally, many will discuss seeking and living in senior cohousing.
