Living in a cooperative housing project in Lodève

Hi there,

Phoebe here. I’m fundraising to realise a dream that’s been evolving for the last 26 years.

Like many of us, I would like to see more solidarity between generations, more room to « be », more room for human values, more room for a harmonious environment.

My dream is of living in a place

where I can be at ease with myself and with others, sharing common spaces, a library, a living room, an open-space office, a laundry, a « quiet room », vegetable garden, etc.; all this with a concern for environmental issues and for "green" energy production ; a place open to the outside world, especially to the neighbourhood in which it is implanted, while allowing a cosy nest for each one of us ; a place where we can live together, young and old, through thick and thin, until the end of our days.

I share this dream with « La Caminade », a cooperative that was created according to the participatory housing concept of the Maisons Ecoé association (non-profit organisation). When I met them, the members of La Caminade were already applying the values of Maisons Ecoé (ref : website), while working towards the realisation of a project « on the ground ». Since then I have become a member of the cooperative and we have come a long way together. A plot of land in the « Les Carmes » district of Lodève has been selected and is in the process of being bought by the cooperative.

Nevertheless, for the realisation of this project, everyone needs to bring a financial contribution within the limits of their possibilities. If I can find many small donations, I will be able to approach the sum set for my initial contribution, ideally 20,000€, for the small flat with terrace that I am aiming for. I will pay the rest of my « parts » via a monthly installment.

This is why I am asking all my friends, who wish to do so, to participate with a donation, no matter how small, so that I can really be part of this journey with them. The minimum donation is 5€.

A big thank you to all of you!

I can't wait to see you, on the land that has become a living housing cooperative, to celebrate our success. I’ll keep you up-dated on the project’s progress.

Contact me directly if you want to know more.
