Through connection, communication, organization, and group activities, neighbors can build and develop resources that establish a strong sense of unity. Design plans geared toward elders help foster independence as well as companionship. This book is ideal for any neighborhood, development, or intentional community interested in sustainable living.

Cecile Andrews, author of Living Room Revolution: A Handbook for Conversation, Community, and the Common Good
I'm asked often: "What's the biggest challenge to our having neighborhoods that respond to the real needs of real people?" I reply, neighborhoods that align with their values, life experiences, and aspirations. "Is it government regulations, land use, zoning?" they ask. "Is it bank financing?" No, it's reaching a tipping point in our culture when enough people want the change; enough people get smarter about their neighborhood; enough people organize. Second Journey's new book is how to reimagine the places in which we currently live. We can do this... if we choose to.
Charles Durrett, author of The Senior Cohousing Handbook
As people live longer and the number of seniors in our population surges, not surprisingly creative ideas about living together in community are surfacing... The refreshing ideas in this new book from Second Journey will go some way in helping us recover the time-honored meaning of "neighborhood."
