5:00 – 6:00 pm

Lorne Opler
Originally from Toronto, Lorne has lived in the US for many years and is now back in Canada He is grateful for universal health care (though imperfect as it is), “after navigating the US health care system, you learn to appreciate what we have here”.
Lorne is currently an adjunct instructor of Fitness and Health Promotion/Nutrition in the community college system – having taught at Humber, Centennial and Seneca Colleges in Toronto and Durham College in Oshawa.   Lorne will be leading an online group fitness class for the cohousing members – a short but effective workout that includes cardio, strength training,  balance and falls prevention movements.

Kathy Morgan 
Currently residing in London, Ontario, Kathy is an avid gardener, fibre enthusiast, and ‘parent’ to two wonderful, geriatric cats.
Her passion is Fibre Arts.  “Fibre Arts has provided me with opportunities for education, exploration, self-expression and travel.  These have helped to shape my various interests.
Sharing my journey with fibre assists in broadening public awareness of traditional fibre arts and crafts – a priority for me.
This brief summary will introduce me through some of my fibre-related pieces.”

Topic: Tiny Homes

Thank you to Dekyi-Lee Oldershaw (experienced in tiny home living) and Dr. Blake Poland, U of T, (also experienced in tiny home living), for a fascinating talk “Putting the Community in Tiny House Living” which was presented to Cohousing Hamilton and friends on March 20, 2023. 

If you’d like to learn more about tiny homes and their history and would also like to hear from someone with first hand experience, you’re bound to enjoy this recording.

In case you missed it, below is a link to the recording of a presentation we enjoyed on January 9 from speakers at 3 cohousing communities in Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Ann Arbor presentation

 One of our members recently provided an excellent presentation on Pomali Cohousing in Austria. It’s always great to see how other cohousing communities are doing and what we can aspire to as we continue to search for land for our own site. We hope you find the presentation both informative and inspiring.
