Local organizer Dylan Linet will be speaking on the potential of Tiny Houses to provide low-cost housing communities. He is a member of the Twin Cities Ecovillage. A proposal for an Envision Community of tiny homes to address homelessness was recently covered by Minnesota Public Radio.
Tiny houses are just one form of community. Are you looking for more connectedness and social community in your life? Consider making your next neighborhood a cohousing community. It’s a great time to get involved and start designing an intentional housing development with your future neighbors.
Register now for this chance to connect to learn about tiny houses and connect with others seeking more satisfying, stable and interconnected forms of housing.
Speaker: Barbara Bailey, Partnership for Affordable Cohousing
Many people wonder if affordable cohousing is an unreachable ideal. Barbara Bailey, Partnerships for Affordable Cohousing, is coming up from Iowa to talk with us on Sept. 19th about why and how it is feasible.
Barbara recently retired from The Housing Fellowship, a non-profit affordable housing developer, where she worked first as an independent accounting professional, and then as the finance manager. She worked in the fields of non-profit business and financial management for more than 35 years, and is certified by the National Development Council as a Housing Development Finance Professional. Barbara lives in Prairie Hill Cohousing a community that she helped found in Iowa City, IA.
Register to attend and engage with our guest speaker as she provides ideas for bringing cohousing within reach of people with modest means. We hope you will contribute some of your own ideas and questions to the discussion following the presentation.
