From Oakland to Grass Valley, Cohousers Unite!

This past Monday, a contingent of future members and support staff from Phoenix Commons hit the road and traveled up to Grass Valley, an hour north of Sacramento, where they met with fellow cohousers at Wolf Creek Lodge. Conceived in 2006 and built in 2012, Wolf Creek Lodge is home to a community of active seniors (age range: 56 to 91) living cooperatively in 30 units and extensive common areas.

As the 4th senior cohousing community in the nation and the first in California, the folks at Wolf Creek Lodge are living proof of the vibrancy and sustainability of a cohousing lifestyle for seniors. As the first senior cohousing community in the San Francisco Bay Area, Phoenix Commons believes it’s important to forge connections with sister communities such as Wolf Creek Lodge, so that together we can all educate the world about the benefits of cooperative aging.
