There are 3 different main communities I am working in and on-
- Cetis LLP learning tech coop
- Local Quaker community.
The big question which haven’t solved is Care. In co-housing they are very good at governance. co housing. Other networks are focusing on the technical stuff. Edgeryders is focusing down on the Care. Edgeryders is talking about care: where is the structure? where is the actual scaffolding? Care is a really sensitive issue. People don’t like intrusion and people don’t like isolation. In my community beyond the house and the village ,there is no intermediate scale of care. There is a well being lack in our community.People are not having their needs met or not getting on down with the individuals. That’s not a very caring way of doing it. Some of us can look after our own needs alone, but its very difficult. A village context is exactly where I can see it happening
In my co-housing community because there are not formal structures for care and well-being: its all informal.
