To cultivate a network of cooperatives and intentional communities is to build community resilience in our city and region. This resilience can look many ways: supporting new and existing cooperatives, improving the ways in which we live together by focusing on the systems that are in place in our houses/communities, increasing our communication between communities, and building interpersonal relationships with folks who share similar lifestyles.
For this January gathering, we will first introduce ourselves and the communities we are/have been a part of in Portland. We can then start discussing questions around what SuperVillage interdependence looks like and what our goals are for connecting and forming this network? What needs do the larger community have that we could meet by being connected, aware of, and in touch with each other?"
~WHAT TO BRING~
Potluck! Bring a dish or two to share. The house is vegan, but we are totally fine having non-vegan foods in the house.
The house has stairs leading up to it, but once inside there is a bathroom on the main floor. We do not have pets.
The house is close to many bus lines. We have a bike parking structure at the top of the driveway, and are building a second for the backyard that will hopefully be done by Jan. 18! Street parking for cars is never a problem.
This event is part of a week of celebration of events and service for the the 10th anniversary of the PDX Permaculture's 10-Year Anniversary Event Week.
