The Commons on the Alameda is a cohousing community which means that in all aspects of its design and development, we have sought to engender a spirit of conviviality and neighborliness. To get a better idea of what this means in practice, we’re pleased to offer a few short media pieces about life in The Commons.

Video Shorts/Newsletter

You can watch Commons Videos created by community members about life in the Commons, and read a recent community newsletter. If you would like to learn more about life in The Commons or if you would like to visit our community, feel free to email us at thecommonsonthealameda@gmail.com.
