The main focus of the events we offer are about cohousing, community building and sustainable living. In its broadest sense sustainable living covers a wide range of topics, from the house you live in to lifestyle choices and personal development.

Cohousing course


Cohousing Courses

The Threshold Centre can provide an opportunity for individuals or groups to experience life in a cohousing community for a weekend or a day, whilst learning how to organise setting up a project. If you feel that you, or your group would benefit from this, then please contact us  and we can discuss tailoring a workshop to suit your needs.
