Pamela's new home...
April 2, 2006: I
found a wonderful apartment in Davis, CA,
the culmination of a 5-year plan to move to a place where I could have chickens!
It is a community called N Street Co-Housing (see http://www.nstreetcohousing.org/).
I might even start eating healthy there, as they have 3-4 community meals per
October 22, 2006:
ACCESS = SAFETY DAY
Oct. 22 was the 1st
N Street CoHousing day dedicated to improving access (and thus safety) in our
neighborhood. It was a satisfying day of activity. Many volunteered time, tools,
materials and encouragement! One project was making a ramp into Linda and Kevin's
front door. The front was chosen because the width of the back door is too narrow
for many wheelchairs (29 ½"). Obstacles included a 3 ¾" rise and clutter. Here
are BEFORE and AFTER photos:
TIME: 3 ½ hours
COST: I believe all materials were donated
Laurie and Russell
tackled clearing their back yard path and patio. Obstacles included overgrown
plants, bordering rocks placed too close and clutter. For BEFORE and AFTER photos,

Other projects for
the day included moving hoses, sweeping paths, and spending time talking and
thinking about how to improve access and safety in our community.
We'll be doing more
Access = Safety Days in the future.
Thanks to all who participated in this one!
