Asbury University recently issued the following announcement.
Concerned about the lack of affordable housing in Lexington? Worried about the displacement happening because of gentrification? Interested in collectively owning land, housing, co-working space or child and elder care with your neighbors? Looking for ways to build relationships with your neighbors?
Wondering what's new with Wild Fig Worker Cooperative? More than half the world's population rely on cooperatives to meet their basic needs.
Come collectively dream and build with your fellow community members to see how we can expand Lexington's cooperative ecosystem to save and reclaim sacred space that meets all of our needs.
With information sessions starting at 10am and breakout popular education community discussions beginning at 2pm, find out how to plug into existing cooperative efforts like Wild Fig and Fresh Stop Markets and also be part of ongoing conversations about existing space the community can collectively own and what other common needs we have that we can meet together, as a community.
Stay tuned for a complete schedule and information on facilitators and presenters.
UPDATE: We will be doing the Highlander Center's Mapping Our Futures training during the afternoon workshop.
