The Threshold Centre at Cole Street Farm, is a small cohousing community just outside Gillingham in North Dorset. We aim to ‘walk our talk’ with a lifestyle that is more green, more affordable, and more neighbourly. The Threshold Centre consists of fourteen dwellings, seven of which are affordable rent and shared ownership with a local housing association – a first in the short history of cohousing in this country. There is also a common farmhouse with shared facilities and guest rooms, green energy systems and a community vegetable garden.
We hold an open afternoon tea on the first Saturday of the month and Gardening Weekends and other events periodically. Please see our website for details of dates. If you are interested in coming to live here, you are welcome to visit, even if there are no immediate vacancies. Please see our website http://www.thresholdcentre.org.uk/page2-1 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
